Post-Game 131 Thread: Gonzalez Gets High Five

High five, everybody!


Adrian Gonzalez singlehandedly shifted the momentum of Saturday's game with his three-run HR in the fifth, and then added a sacrifice fly in the seventh to complement his RBI single in the fourth, ending the day with five of the team's seven RBI. None of those five RBI outshined the comical hilarity of Scott Van Slyke's check-swing infield single in the seventh, which plated Miguel Rojas and allowed Dee Gordon to advance from first to third on Mets pitcher Josh Edgin's throwing error. However, A-Gon's production today was nothing short of impressive overall; Gonzalez leads the Dodgers with 88 RBI, which trails only Giancarlo Stanton's 93 RBI in the NL.

Zack Greinke was the other story today, with Saturday's start having been pushed back to give him recovery time from a sore elbow. Greinke was solid if not dominating: 4 R, 3 ER, and 9 H in 7 IP, with 4 Ks and 2 HR allowed. Greinke said in the post-game interviews that he felt fine, so we'll cross our fingers until his next start.

Aren't we due for another in memoriam? I think Stubbs or Cora are up for nominations.
