Colorado Rockies outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Dexter Fowler have left Thursday's game against Washington after getting injured. Gonzalez was hit near the ankle by a foul ball while on deck in the first inning and exited with a bruised left foot. The Rockies said X-rays were negative and listed the All-Star left fielder as day to day. Fowler was hit on the right hand by a pitch from Ross Detwiler after squaring to bunt in the third. A team trainer looked at Fowler, and the center fielder stayed in for another inning. Fowler is batting .302. He doubled and scored a run in the first inning. Gonzalez was hit by Jordan Pacheco's foul liner. Gonzalez is hitting .299 and leads the Rockies with 18 home runs and 52 RBIs. He's had a sore left knee for the past week.
