Gonzalez came up against Johnny Barbato in the top of the 6th inning, where he pulled this double down the left field line for career hit number 2,000.
It took 14 years in Major League Baseball, but Adrian Gonzalez is now just the 285th player in Major League Baseball history to collect hit number 2,000. So congratulations to Adrian Gonzalez on hit number 2,000 and may there be many more for you in Dodger blue!
