Gonsolin to Gonzalez and we're still tied , thank you Pittsburgh O
We're probably getting a good number on Gonsolin in his next start after what he did tonight. Somebody remember that for me.
That'll be it for Tony Gonsolin, who walks the bases loaded in the second inning. Five walks tonight for him. Big spot here for Colin Moran.

Gonna chalk this one up to being first game back nerves, but that's not what any of us or the #Dodgers were hoping for from Gonsolin
