Gonzalez had a day to remember on Monday, going 3-for-6 with three home runs and eight RBI.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has been truly unstoppable at the plate this month, hitting safely in 15 straight to bring his average for August up to .378. He's also clubbed six home runs and knocked in 19 already this month. It's been a down year for the first baseman in the power department, even with his huge August. After hitting 28 home runs with 90 RBI a season ago, Gonzalez is at just 15 homers and 70 RBI thus far this season.

Gonzalez had a big day at the plate Wednesday, hitting a pair of home runs, one a two-run and another a three-run shot for five RBI total.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez's five RBI give him 62 on the year, and the blasts bring his home run total to 12. Gonzalez is hitting .298 in his age-34 season, batting in the heart of a hot Dodgers lineup that has been top-five in OPS in each of July and August. He should get ample opportunities to grow that RBI total moving forward, hitting behind Corey Seager, Justin Turner, and Josh Reddick.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored Tuesday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has been on fire, picking up 10 hits in the last four games. Just two of the previous eight went for extra bases, so it's nice to see that the veteran first baseman still has some pop in his bat. His career-low .129 isolated power suggests Gonzalez's power stroke is on a massive downswing despite this outing, even though he still knows how to find holes in the defense.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in Monday's 9-4 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

That's eight hits in the last three games for the red-hot first baseman. Gonzalez has only driven in a modest three runs out of the clean-up spot during this impressive stretch, but has crossed the plate five times himself. The veteran is still batting a mystifyingly low .264 at Dodger Stadium despite the recent success, but has made up for that disappointing mark with a .322 average on the road.

Gonzalez isn't in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

There's no indication Gonzalez is hurt, so it's likely just a rest day for the veteran first baseman with the left-handed Patrick Corbin toeing the rubber for the Diamondbacks. Scott Van Slyke will replace him at first base Sunday, batting cleanup for the Dodgers.

Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and an additional run scored in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

St. Louis trotted Michael Mayers out to make his Major League debut, and Gonzalez welcomed him to the big leagues with a grand slam in his first at-bat after three men reached base to start the game. The long-ball was Gonzalez's second in as many games, bringing him to nine on the season, and his 51 RBI to this point put him on pace to rival last year's total, despite the drop in power numbers.

Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez left the yard for the eighth time this year in the sixth inning to give the Dodgers an insurance run in a road victory. He's only homered twice since June 11, and he's slashing .280/.357/.401 on the season.

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez will take a seat against southpaw Robbie Ray, as manager Dave Roberts will trot out a lineup almost entirely void of left-handed bats (with the exception of Corey Seager). The plattoon splits of Gonzalez aren't all that drastic, as he owns a .269 batting average against left-handers, but Roberts will elect to play matchups nonetheless. Scott Van Slyke will get the starting nod at first base in place of Gonzalez.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran first baseman wrapped up a productive series against one of his former squads by homering for the first time since June 11 against the Giants. Gonzalez's extended power drought had been somewhat of a cause for concern, but he's been clicking in virtually every other category. Following Sunday's production, he's already brought his average up 18 points in July and surpassed his June RBI total as well, while bringing up his season line to an improving .291/.370/.412 at the midway point.
