Everything was firing on all cylinders for the Dodgers this afternoon against the Rays as first baseman Adrian Gonzalez belted a two-run home run in the first inning.
Nick Punto, who is filling in for Hanley Ramirez at short, also has two RBIs on the afternoon as the Dodgers had a 4-0 lead through three innings.
In the fourth inning, the Dodgers loaded the bases with three singles as A.J. Ellis sent a fly ball to center. Rays outfielder Wil Myers threw home as Juan Uribe and Skip Schumaker moved up to second and third.
