Gonzalez, 2-for-5 on the night, drilled a two-run shot off of Matt Wisler in the fifth inning to knot the game up at 4-4. It's his 21st of the season and his eighth in the month of July. He's knocked in 60 runs while hitting a terrific .296/.369/.551.

Adrian Gonzalez smashed a two-run homer in the eighth inning on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 4-3 victory over the Brewers.

The Dodgers offense had been stifled for most of the afternoon, but Gonzalez was able to come through with the big hit against Will Smith when it mattered most. The veteran slugger is in the midst of another outstanding season, wrapping up his first half slashing .283/.355/.520 with 18 home runs and 55 RBI.

It's his third home run in five July games, giving him 16 on the season with 51 RBI and a .291/.368/.526 batting line. It was announced on Monday that Gonzalez made the National League's 2015 All-Star Game roster as a reserve.

Adrian Gonzalez (hand) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

Jul 6 - 6:19 PM

Adrian Gonzalez was diagnosed with a right hand contusion after being hit by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Mets.

Adrian Gonzalez was removed from Sunday's contest against the Mets after being hit by a pitch on his hand.

Gonzalez remained in the game until his next at-bat, where Alex Guerrero pinch-hit for him. He's likely headed for precautionary X-rays to rule out any structural damage and the Dodgers should have an update on his status shortly.
Jul 5 - 5:31 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Gonzalez took Mets starter Matt Harvey deep for his 15th homer of the year in the fifth inning and with the RBI, Gonzalez has now batted in an even 50 for the season. His season-long triple-slash looks solid at .293/.367/.514, but it should be noted that after a molten hot April, he's posted progressively lower numbers each of the last two months. In June, he hit just .248/.320/.381.
Jul 4 - 10:58 PM

Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

With lefty Robbie Ray on the hill, Gonzalez and a few of the other left-handed hitting Dodgers are getting a rest. Scott Van Slyke started in his place at first base Wednesday.
Jul 1 - 6:33 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI double in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

Gonzalez added some insurance in a low-scoring affair, doubling in the seventh inning to make it a 2-0 ballgame. While no one realistically expected him to maintain a 1.000 OPS over the course of the season, his June swoon has caused his OPS to drop 137 points since the beginning of the month. He's still batting a very productive .297/.371/.518 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI.
Jun 28 - 4:16 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

Last season, Gonzalez hit 41 doubles. He's already halfway to that mark, as his two-bagger on Thursday was his 21st such hit in 2015. In addition to the doubles power, Gonzalez has hit 11 homers and driven in 39 runs while slashing .337/.413/.612. He's right up there with Paul Goldschmidt and Bryce Harper in what should be a fantastic NL MVP race.
Jun 5 - 1:53 AM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run, helping the Dodgers take the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

Gonzalez extended the Dodgers' lead to 4-0 with a third-inning two-run home run off of David Hale. The first baseman has done nothing but hit all season long, now standing with a remarkable .332/.411/.610 triple-slash line along with 11 home runs and 38 RBI.
