VIDEO: Adrian Gonzalez Hits Towering Home Run Off Josh Collmenter
The last time the Los Angeles Dodgers played on the road against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Adrian Gonzalez finished the three-game series 7-for-13 with three home runs and 10 RBIs. By hitting a homer in each of the three games, Gonzalez had put together a streak of four consecutive games with a home run.
Mired in a bit of a slump, though not overly concerned by it, Gonzalez was 2-for-7 with three walks and a run scored heading into Sunday’s rubber match against the Diamondbacks. Josh Collmenter was on the mound for the D-Backs, a pitcher Gonzalez has had success against, though in only four career at-bats.
Hanley Ramirez gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the first inning, but an error in the second inning allowed the Diamondbacks to tie the game. Following a two-out walk by Ramirez, Gonzalez stepped in and crushed the first pitch he saw to the balcony that hangs over the pool area in Chase Field to give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead.
