Players On Fire: Adrian Gonzalez

Chase Utley may be the hottest guy in baseball, but Adrian Gonzalez is pretty en fuego himself.

Gonzalez went 2 for 5 with a homer, a double and three RBI in the Dodgers’ 8-6 win over the Diamondbacks yesterday. With that performance, he now has a nine-game hitting streak and has homered in four straight.

After a slow start, the first baseman leads the National League in runs scored, he’s second in home runs and third in RBI. I think it’s time to welcome back the Adrian Gonzalez we were used to seeing before last year.
