Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a double and two RBIs before being removed. During the three-game sweep of the Rays, he had two doubles, one home run and five RBIs. He leads the team with 16 homers and 74 RBIs.

"He got a little lightheaded," said manager Don Mattingly. "Hopefully, it's nothing. I don't think it's anything at all."

Jerry Hairston Jr. pinch-hit for Gonzalez and played first in the ninth.
