Rockies' Gonzalez leaves game after sliding catch

AP - Sports

DETROIT (AP) -- Colorado Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez has left Friday night's game at Detroit after sliding into the wall while making a terrific catch in foul ground.

Gonzalez caught Victor Martinez's flyball to end the fifth inning, then limped off the field, having aggravated a sprained right ankle. He was replaced in the sixth by Brandon Barnes.

Gonzalez is having a rough season, hitting only .237 with 10 homers. Friday's injury comes three weeks after he came off the disabled list - he missed over a month with a left index finger injury.
