Dodgers: Gavin Lux Sets Interesting Team Record in Debut

Dodgers top prospect Gavin Lux became the first player in the live-ball era to score three or more runs in their major league debut.

On the night, Lux went 2-for-5 with the aforementioned three runs and a double to top things off. He looked poised overall and his output tonight provided some evidence to back that claim.

Lux batted eighth and started at second base against the Rockies on Monday night, something Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he would do a lot of against right-handed pitching going forward.

Lux was an integral part of a historic night for the Dodgers, one that saw them punish the Colorado Rockies with a convincing 16-9 victory.

The game was the first of its kind in Major League Baseball history: 11 doubles and 11 home runs. The Dodgers chipped in precisely seven of those home runs and four doubles, with Lux representing one of them.

At Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, Lux set the world on fire, posting a .392/.478/.719 slash line while crushing 13 home runs in 49 games. Lux should be a spark down the stretch for an offensive unit that has been struggling as of late. Gavin Lux’s potential has already been seen through his first game in a major league uniform.
