Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez snapped an early 2-2 tie in Wednesday’s NLCS Game 5 with this monstrous solo shot off Cardinals starter Joe Kelly in the bottom of the third inning:

What can’t be seen in that video highlight is Gonzalez mocking Mickey Mouse ears on the top of his helmet after touching home plate — a jab at Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright, who took issue with some of the Dodgers’ antics in Game 3 of the NLCS on Monday night. Wainwright called it “Mickey Mouse stuff.”

Carl Crawford added a solo blast in the bottom of the fifth inning and the Dodgers lead 4-2.

The Cardinals are up 3-1 in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.
