Adrian Gonzalez homers in 1st at-bat with Dodgers

Adrian Gonzalez has hit a three-run homer on the second pitch he

saw in a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform.

Hours after arriving at Dodger Stadium on a flight from Boston

with Josh Beckett and Nick Punto following Saturday’s blockbuster

trade with the Red Sox, Gonzalez drove an 0-1 pitch from Miami

right-hander Josh Johnson deep into the lower seats in the

right-field corner.

It was his first National League homer since the end of the 2010

season with San Diego.

Gonzalez took over at first base for James Loney, who went to

Boston in the deal. The four-time All-Star batted cleanup between

Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez, with Andre Ethier dropped to sixth

despite getting four hits Friday night.

Gonzalez became the sixth player to homer in his first at-bat

with the Dodgers.
