Adrian Gonzalez, the only Dodger to drive in a run tonight, had to be thrilled not to be facing Jacob deGrom. He had struck out in all three plate appearances off the young flame thrower, twice on upper-90's fastballs and once on an 87-mph change up. Coming in, he was 3-for-8 with two home runs off him.
