It was a big day today for Gavin Lux and boy did he deliver.
The Los Angeles Dodgers called up top prospect Gavin Lux to make his Major League debut on Labor day, and he absolutely made his mark as the Dodgers cruise to a 16-9 victory over the Colorado Rockies in their series opener at Coors Field.
Lux has been talked about for a while now as he was tearing the cover off the ball at Triple-A Oklahoma City before earning the promotion. He picked up right where he left off in the Minors, hitting the first big league pitch he saw for a single up the middle in the bottom of the second. He then doubled in his second at-bat and finished 2-for-5, marking the first Dodger to score three runs in his debut in the process.
After the game, Lux reunited with his family and made sure he gave his parents the ball from his first hit.
