Adrian Gonzalez clubbed a solo home run leading off the second inning on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 1-0 victory over the Cubs in Game 2 of the NLCS.

With the victory, the Dodgers have evened up the series at one game apiece as the series transitions to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Tuesday night. Gonzalez got ahead of Kyle Hendricks 1-0, then took him deep to left-center to give the Dodgers an early 1-0 lead. That would prove to be all of the offense the Dodgers required as Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen combined to shut out the opposition. Gonzalez finished the day 1-for-3 and is now hitting .259/.310/.481 with a pair of homers and five RBI in the postseason.

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI in the Dodgers' loss to the Cubs Saturday in Game 1 of the NLCS.

It looked like Aroldis Chapman was going to pitch his way out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth inning but Gonzalez had other ideas. The veteran slugged a single back up the middle, plating Andrew Toles from third and Chase Utley from second. Gonzalez had been hitless in four career at-bats against Chapman before Saturday. Gonzalez also singled in his first at-bat of the game against Jon Lester, though he ended the inning by getting gunned down at home plate. He’ll try to extend his postseason hitting streak to five Sunday in Game 2.

Adrian Gonzalez homered and doubled Wednesday in a losing cause against the Padres.

Adrian Gonzalez (sinus infection) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

Gonzalez was lifted midway through Tuesday's contest due to a sinus infection. The ailment was not burdensome enough to require an additional day off, though. He is batting in his customary fourth spot on Wednesday.

Adrian Gonzalez exited Tuesday's loss to the Padres due to a sinus infection.

Gonzalez saw two at-bats before being lifted. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward, but there is little reason to believe this will cost him more than a game or two. If that.

Adrian Gonzalez delivered a game-winning double in the bottom of the ninth for the Dodgers against the Giants on Monday.

Hunter Pence seemed to have a play on Gonzalez's fly to the wall in right, but he couldn't come up with it, and Corey Seager, who held up thinking the ball would be caught, was able to come around from second. It was Gonzalez's lone hit of the day. After a big August surge, he's hit just .210 with one homer and four walks in his past 22 games.

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Gonzalez did manage one of the Dodgers' four hits on the afternoon (all four went for singles), but he fanned twice against Jose Urena in what was a punch-less offensive effort by the boys from Hollywood. The veteran slugger has been his typically dependable self this year, slashing .292/.355/.488 with 17 homers and 78 RBI across 507 at-bats.

Adrian Gonzalez had a monster day in Monday’s 18-9 pounding of the Reds, going 3-for-6 with three homers and a career-high eight RBI.

Gonzalez connected for a three-run shot off Homer Bailey in the first inning before adding a solo blast in a six-run fifth and a two-run shot in the seventh. He had a chance for a fourth homer in the eighth, but grounded out to second base. On the bright side, he drove in his eighth run of the day on the play. This is the second three-homer game of Gonzalez’s career. He has now hit safely in 15 consecutive games and is batting .299/.369/.458 with 15 homers and 70 RBI overall.

Adrian Gonzalez drilled a three-run bomb in the fourth inning and a two-run tater in the seventh to lead the Dodgers over the Phillies 7-2 on Wednesday.

Gonzalez has come to life lately to perk up a sluggish season. The powerful game raised his line to .298/.371/.438 with 12 homers, 62 RBI and 53 runs scored in 115 games. The batting average and on-base percentage look good but the power stats are well below what we are used to getting from the veteran slugger.
