James Outman ties & breaks Dodgers records

During his MLB debut against the Colorado Rockies on July 31, Outman made a bit of Dodgers history. His first career big league at-bat resulted in a two-run blast deep into right field.

He became the first Dodgers player to homer in their debut at-bat since Keibert Ruiz in 2020. Outman later tacked on an RBI double and single, ending his day by going 3-for-4, making him the first Dodgers player in franchise history with three hits, a home run, three RBI and two runs in his debut game.
