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

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.
Sep 11 - 3:50 PM

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.
Aug 22 - 4:41 PM

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.
Aug 17 - 10:54 PM

Gonzalez became the 140th player in major league history to reach the milestone, most recently achieved by Jose Bautista on Tuesday. His power has been sapped this season, as Sunday's blast was only his 10th long ball of the season. He has still been a capable bat in the middle of the lineup however, slashing .291/.366/.418 with 53 RBI.
Aug 7 - 10:41 PM

Adrian Gonzalez supplied three hits Saturday in a win over the Red Sox.

Gonzalez tormented his former team by singling three times and driving in a run in the Dodgers' 3-0 victory. The 34-year-old hasn't hit for much power this year (only nine homers) but he's made plenty of contact, hitting .286 in 384 at-bats. Saturday marked his ninth three-hit game of the season.
