That minor skid was enough to knock Los Angeles out of the top spot in the NL West, but they received a big energy boost with the team debut of second baseman Brian Dozier. The slugger, who was acquired from the Minnesota Twins at Tuesday's trade deadline, went back-to-back with Grandal for his first Dodger home run. He finished the night 3-for-4 with two runs scored, contributing to the comeback win for his new team.
Matt Kemp ended an 0-for-26 slump by leading off the 10th inning with a single, while Grandal went deep for the 19th time this season for the Dodgers, who blew a 4-2 lead. Milwaukee tied things at four in the eighth when one of their new players, Mike Moustakas, hit a key double. There were three walks in that inning from reliever Scott Alexander, which played a major role in the game going longer than nine innings.
The Dodgers came back from a deficit themselves, as they trailed 2-0 early on in the game, which was wiped away from the back-to-back home runs. Dozier's homer was his 17th of the season overall, which is down compared to his power numbers from last season, when he entered the Home Run Derby.
Lorenzo Cain finished 3-for-4 with a walk, falling a home run shy of the cycle in the loss for Milwaukee. He also scored a run on an error from Dozier after he tripled, which got the second baseman's Dodger career off to a rocky start. Although, his first game ended in celebration, as the Dodgers will go for the series split in the series finale on Thursday night.
