Adrian Gonzalez went 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBI, and Kershaw himself went 1 for 3 and scored a run, but he gave up an uncharacteristic four earned over seven innings. Of course our bullpen is always good for a run or two for our opponents, and in the end the Cards' small lead was, once again, insurmountable.
