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.
Aug 17 - 10:54 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Gonzalez notched an RBI double off Jeremy Hellickson in the first inning for his lone hit of the afternoon. The veteran slugger is hitting .295/.367/.425 with 10 homers and 55 RBI across an even 400 at-bats. He has been hot of late, picking up 11 hits in his last 20 at-bats.
Aug 10 - 8:16 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 and swatted his 300th career home run on Sunday, helping to lead the Dodgers in an 8-5 victory over the Red Sox.

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.
Aug 6 - 7:28 PM

Adrian Gonzalez blasted a grand slam in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 9-6 victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis.

The Dodgers jumped on rookie right-hander Mike Mayers right out of the gate, with a pair of singles and a walk before Gonzalez unloaded on a towering grand slam to center field. He added a pair of singles, including a run-scoring knock in the second inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and four RBI. He's now hitting .284/.360/.412 with nine homers and 51 RBI.
Jul 25 - 12:01 AM

Adrian Gonzalez hit his eighth home run of the season in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

The homer was the solo variety, hit off Cards starter Mike Leake in the sixth inning. His power outage has been baffling, as Gonzalez has traditionally averaged 22 home runs over his big league career. The 34-year-old is hitting .280/.357/.401 with 47 RBI and 37 runs scored through 95 games.
Jul 23 - 10:51 PM

Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

It appears to be a simple day off. Scott Van Slyke is at first base.
Jul 17 - 1:39 PM

Adrian Gonzalez swatted his seventh home run of the season as the Dodgers closed out the first half of the season with a 3-1 victory over the Padres on Sunday afternoon.

Gonzalez clobbered a solo shot off Padres starter Christian Friedrich in the fifth inning, increasing the Dodgers advantage to 3-1. He also singled in the contest, finishing the day 2-for-4. While the power numbers are down, Gonzalez wrapped up a strong first half hitting .291/.370/.409 with seven long balls and 44 RBI.
Jul 10 - 8:02 PM

Adrian Gonzalez finished 2-for-4 including an RBI double as the Dodgers won on Saturday.

Gonzalez doubled in Chase Utley in the first inning and later added a single. He is not having the type of season his owners are accustomed to. His power game has been down all year. He is batting .288 but has only six home runs and 43 RBI thus far.
Jul 9 - 10:16 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles.

Gonzalez collected an RBI single against Chris Tillman in the first inning. That would drive home the Dodgers' only run of the game. The veteran slugger has done a fine job in terms of average, but has yet to find much of a true power stroke. He is slashing .280/.358/.386 with 13 doubles, six homers and 40 RBI over 293 at-bats. Gonzalez entered the 2016 season having posted at least 20 homers in three consecutive seasons. That streak is in serious jeopardy right now.
Jul 6 - 1:43 AM

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 and knocked in two runs Friday against the Rockies.

It's Gonzalez's first two-RBI game since June 11. He had an .800 OPS and 15 RBI in April, a .790 OPS and 12 RBI in May and then a .615 OPS and eight RBI in June. He'll surely pick it up some, but both he and his teammates need to be quite a bit better if he's going to reemerge as a top-10 fantasy first baseman.
Jul 2 - 1:51 AM

Adrian Gonzalez went a perfect 3-for-3 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

The three-hit game was much needed for the 34-year-old, who hadn't had a multi-hit game in his previous eight contests. The run batted in was also rare, giving A-Gonz just seven RBI this month. The 34-year-old has had a relatively disappointing season all around to date, batting .272/.347/.382 with six homers, 34 RBI and 26 runs scored.
Jun 28 - 11:47 PM

Adrian Gonzalez will sit for the second straight game Monday against the Pirates.

Scott Van Slyke got the nod at first base Sunday with Gonzalez appearing as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and will start there again on Monday. Gonzalez has had a hard time this month (.181 with one homer in 83 at-bats) and manager Dave Roberts thinks defensive shifts could be to blame. "If you see the three infielders on the right side of the infield and you’re not getting hits, logic says that if I can put the ball on the ground the other way, I can get a hit," said Roberts. "It kind of plays into the psyche of the defense." Gonzalez's .262 average this year is his lowest since 2005 when he hit .227 in 43 games for Texas.
