Adrian Gonzalez hit a pair of solo homers off Homer Bailey on Sunday night, powering the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds that let them keep pace in the wild card race.
The Dodgers remained three games behind St. Louis and a half-game behind Milwaukee for the final NL playoff spot. All three won on Sunday.
The Reds rested several regulars a day after clinching their second NL Central title in three years. Manager Dusty Baker briefly visited the clubhouse after his release from a Chicago hospital, where he was treated the last four days for an irregular heartbeat.
Bailey (12-10) allowed five hits in 6 2-3 innings, including the two homers by Gonzalez, who has five in his career off the right-hander.
