Adrian Gonzalez- .200/.310/.280

What better way to celebrate entering the 2000 hit club than by talking about how few of those hits came against his teammate? Gonzalez might be a Hall of Fame candidate, who can really tell. He’s a lifetime .289 with over 300 home runs and now 2000 hits gives him a good shot, but it’s certainly no sure thing.

But Gonzalez has been a model of consistency throughout his career, and the team is hoping to count on him in their pursuit of October glory.

In 23 at-bats against Kershaw, Gonzo has five hits, none of them for home runs. He has also struck out ten times in the small sample. It’s safe to say that he’s happy they are both in Los Angeles for the time being.
