Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and three RBI in Sunday’s 4-2 win over the Mets.
Gonzalez played the part of the hero Sunday night for the Dodgers. After the Mets tied the game up at 2-2 in the bottom of the eighth inning, the veteran first baseman promptly got his team the lead back with a two-run single in the top of the ninth. Gonzalez harassed Mets’ pitching all weekend, going 8-for-13 with a homer, a double, four RBI and three runs scored during that three-game set. The Dodgers will face Cubs’ right-hander Jason Hammel on Monday evening. Gonzalez has not fared well in his career against the veteran hurler, picking up just seven hits across 38 at-bats.
Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a double, a triple and one RBI in Sunday’s 4-2 loss to the Dodgers.
Granderson came up with a two-out, RBI triple off of Dodgers’ reliever Adam Liberatore in the bottom of the eighth inning that tied the game up at 2-2. The veteran outfielder was the only Mets’ player to come up with multiple hits in this one, as Clayton Kershaw dominated most of the way. Granderson went 4-for-12 with three extra-base hits over the weekend and could be finally getting into a rhythm at the plate. He and the Mets will face White Sox’ southpaw Jose Quintana on Monday afternoon.
Julio Teheran worked 5.1 innings in Sunday’s 7-3 loss to the Marlins, giving up three runs on five hits and three walks while recording three strikeouts.
After giving up one run or less in each of his previous six outings, Teheran made a mistake in the top of the sixth inning Sunday afternoon that cost him two runs with one swing of the bat by Marlins’ second baseman Derek Dietrich. Prior to that home run, Teheran had the held the Marlins to just a single run over five innings and appeared to be headed toward another strong stat line. The Atlanta ace may hold a 1-5 record on the year, but that is in no way indicative of how he has performed. Through 11 starts, Teheran has put up an excellent 2.77 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 across 68.1 innings. He will take the mound opposite Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers on Friday night.
Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and three runs scored in Sunday’s 7-3 win over the Braves.
Ozuna’s sensational month at the plate continued Sunday afternoon, as he now has a hit in 26-of-27 games and 15 multi-hit performances in May. Overall this month, the 25-year-old outfielder is batting .434 with seven home runs, eight doubles, 17 RBI and 25 runs scored across 113 plate appearances. Suffice it to say, Ozuna is going to have plenty to say about the N.L. Player of the Month award. The Marlins will face lefty Jeff Locke on Monday evening. Ozuna is 4-for-11 with two doubles against the Pirates’ hurler.
