The Dodgers were not scheduled to start their game in San Diego until 6:40 p.m. so no one could blame them if Dave Roberts, Mark Prior and the front office were instead paying attention to what was happening in Oklahoma City.

After giving up a leadoff single in the first inning, Gonsolin got a double play and a strikeout to get out of the first inning. In the second, Gonsolin would strikeout the first batter and then got a fly out and a ground out to end his night against the Bees.
It was reported that if Gonsolin did not have any concerns after his two-inning outing, he would be slotted in to start in the final series against the Rockies in order to build up for the National League Divisional Series.
