Gonzalez leaves with right knee strain
Gonzalez hit an RBI triple off Mike Hampton with one out in the fourth and slid hard into third base. After Kevin Kouzmanoff struck out, Gonzalez was visited by manager Bud Black and head trainer Todd Hutcheson, who examined Gonzalez's right knee.
After a few minutes, Gonzalez came out of the game and was replaced by rookie Kyle Blanks.
The Padres won 4-3.
