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.
Jun 3 - 12:14 AM

Adrian Gonzalez had a perfect night at the plate, going 4-for-4 with a walk and a pair of doubles as the Dodgers routed the Rockies on Monday.

In one night, Gonzalez exceeded the amount of hits he had accrued in his previous five ballgames. Despite reaching base five times, the Dodgers -- who scored 11 runs -- only brought him home once, in the eighth inning. The effort brings Gonzalez's OPS back up over 1.000. He has a .339/.415/.611 triple-slash line with 10 home runs and 35 RBI.
Jun 1 - 11:50 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run as the Dodgers enjoyed an easy win over the Braves on Tuesday.

Gonzalez's fifth-inning two-run home run off of Julio Teheran marked his 10th long ball of the season and his 1,000th and 1,001st RBI's of his 12-year-career. The first baseman owns a stellar .344/.421/.638 batting line with 35 RBI on the season as well.
May 27 - 12:52 AM

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with four RBI in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Rockies.

Gonzalez racked up three of those RBI with a bases-clearing double against Jorge De La Rosa in the fifth inning. He later added a sacrifice fly. It's just a continuation of what's been a monster season for the first baseman. In addition to his .377/.438/.737 batting line, Gonzalez has nine home runs, 29 RBI and 24 runs scored.
May 10 - 8:21 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss versus the Brewers.

Jimmy Rollins and Howie Kendrick, batting in front of Gonzalez, were each held hitless, so he had no runners to drive in. The three hitters behind him combined to go 2-for-12 so they couldn't bring him home any of the three times he reached base. As much as Gonzalez tried, he couldn't do it himself. The slugger has an outstanding .370/.442/.740 batting line with nine home runs and 22 RBI this season.
May 6 - 11:04 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Gonzalez took advantage of Neal Cotts' bad outing, swatting his league-leading ninth homer in the seventh inning. He also walked twice in the game. His 22 RBI and 23 runs scored are both second-most in the National League, and his .361 batting average is third-best through 26 games.
May 6 - 12:34 AM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run as the Dodgers fell in 10 innings to the Giants on Thursday.

Gonzalez creamed a Ryan Vogelsong offering to straightaway center field at AT&T park in the third inning to increase the Giants' lead to 2-0. It was Gonzalez's first homer since April 8 and he had been hitless in 10 at-bats over his previous three games entering Thursday. Nevertheless, Gonzalez maintains a jaw-dropping .414/.477/.862 triple-slash line with 15 RBI.
Apr 23 - 7:29 PM

Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.

Gonzalez is simply getting a day off against a tough lefty in Madison Bumgarner. The first baseman has been killing the ball in the early going, slashing .442/.508/.885 through 13 games. Justin Turner started at first base for the Dodgers Wednesday.
Apr 22 - 6:27 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three runs scored versus the Rockies on Friday.

Even though the homer binge ended quickly, Gonzalez is still batting a robust .550 through 40 at-bats. He has six doubles in his last five games, and he's already scored 13 runs in 10 games despite still running like he's Adrian Gonzalez.
Apr 18 - 1:53 AM

Adrian Gonzalez hit three solo home runs in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Padres.

Gonzalez finished a perfect 4-for-4 with four RBI. He had a chance to tie the major league record for home runs in a game when he stepped to the plate in the sixth inning, but instead settled for a measly RBI single. The veteran first baseman also scored three runs. This was his third straight game with a home run and he now has five on the year. Gonzalez has hit the ground running and it's not inconceivable that he could top the 27 long balls he hit last season, though he's most likely not going to finish with the 270 home runs he's currently on pace for. Most likely.
Apr 9 - 2:18 AM

Adrian Gonzalez had another great night at the plate, finishing 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

Gonzalez tied the game in the sixth with an RBI double and scored the go-ahead run on a Howie Kendrick single. He then hit a game-tying solo home run off of Joaquin Benoit in the bottom of the eighth. Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a double and a solo home run on Opening Day as well, so he's off to a terrific start to the 2015 season.
Apr 8 - 2:20 AM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a double and a solo home run as the Dodgers topped the Padres on Opening Day on Monday.

Gonzalez took James Shields yard to lead off the fourth inning, then doubled and scored in the seventh. He's still among baseball's better hitters, as he finished last season with an .817 OPS, 27 home runs, and 116 RBI, which led the league.
