Adrian Gonzalez back in Dodgers’ lineup one day after feeling dizzy.

Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez complained of dizziness in the top of the eighth inning on Sunday and had to be taken out for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the eighth, but was in Monday’s starting lineup.

In a season of Ramirez and Yasiel Puig, Gonzalez has been the steadiest Dodger throughout the season, leading the Dodgers with 16 homers and 74 RBIs. With his two-run double Sunday night, Gonzalez had recorded an RBI in six straight games.

“Adrian is just a grinder. He comes to play. He’s an example guy to me,” Mattingly said. “Day in and day out, he keeps himself in the lineup. This guy is a big-time player.”
