#Dodgers mgr Don Mattingly on decision to keep Adrian Gonzalez out of the starting lineup for 1st time since May 12
"It was going to be tomorrow," said Mattingly who has tried to give each of his regulars a day off during this series. "I saw him in the training room today and he just looked a little stiff.
"I saw him and said, 'I was going to give you tomorrow' and he said, 'I should be okay.' When he said that, I just said let's make it today."
Gonzalez said he was in the trainer's room to get a massage, just a little sore from the recent schedule.
