VIDEO: Brian Dozier Homers in Dodgers Debut

Brian Dozier, homered in his Dodgers debut on Wednesday night.

Curtain call.

Conjuring up memories of Adrian Gonzalez in 2012, the newest member of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Brian Dozier, homered in his debut on Wednesday night.

After striking out in his first at-bat, Dozier took Milwaukee Brewers starter Chase Anderson deep to straightaway center for his first longball in Los Angeles.

Dozier's homer came on the heels of Yasmani Grandal's dinger one pitcher earlier, marking the ninth time a Dodgers duo has hit back-to-back home runs this season.

After trotting around the bases, fans gave Dozier a standing ovation, demanding the team's newest second baseman come out of the dugout for a curtain call. He obliged.

Dozier was acquired from the Minnesota Twins on Monday in a deal that sent veteran infielder Logan Forsythe to the Twin Cities in addition to prospects Luke Raley and Devin Smeltzer.

Needless to say, Dozier is already endearing himself to Dodgers fans, and if he can have anything like the second half he had in the 2017 season, Los Angeles will be in for a real treat.
