Arenado leaves game with chest contusion

SAN DIEGO -- Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado left the Rockies' 6-4 win over the Padres in the eighth inning with a chest contusion and was awaiting X-ray results, a team spokesman said.

With Wil Myers batting in the sixth, Arenado attempted to make a diving play into the stands going for a foul ball with bases loaded, which would have ended the inning. Arenado couldn't make the catch and landed hard in the crowd.

In what turned out to be his last at-bat of the game, Arenado had to dodge a pitch towards his head from Kevin Quackenbush, taking an awkward swing in the process for strike two. Arenado would eventually strike out and have a few words with the umpire in frustration.

Carlos Gonzalez would take his spot in the batting order and Rafael Ynoa took over at third base.
