Recap: Adrian Gonzalez Homers in 7-2 Victory Over Cardinals

On Saturday, the Dodgers looked to get their first win of the series with Kenta Maeda taking the mound. Yasiel Puig would not get the start due to his lingering hamstring tightness, giving Toles the chance to start in right field!

Let’s take a look at the highlights!

The game would be fairly quiet up until the top of the 3rd when the Dodgers would strike first thanks to some small ball! But first, Kendrick would extend his hitting streak to 15 games in the top of the 2nd!

The Cardinals would get one back in the bottom of the 5th thanks to a solo shot by Matt Adams.

But don’t worry, the Dodgers would flex their muscle too with a solo shot by AGon and a 2-run single by Joc!

The Cardinals would get one back in the bottom of the 6th thanks to a sacrifice fly by Greg Garcia, and that would do it for Kenta Maeda!

Stripling would make his major league return in the bottom of the 8th and do amazing!

He would continue into the top of the 9th and close things out! The Dodgers win 7-2!

The Dodgers will look to take the series on Sunday at 5:08 PM PST with Scott Kazmir getting the start! Follow us on Twitter at @DodgersNation to get the play by play! Go Blue!
