Manny Ramirez smashes first home run since return

Associated Press-

SAN DIEGO -- Manny Ramirez hit his first home run since his return from a 50-game suspension for violating baseball's drug policy.

It was Ramirez's seventh of the season and 534th of his career, tying Jimmie Foxx for 16th on the all-time list. Up next is Mickey Mantle with 536.

The slugger gave the Los Angeles Dodgers a 1-0 lead Saturday when he drove a 1-2 changeup from San Diego's Josh Geer an estimated 369 feet into the seats in left field at Petco Park with two outs in the first inning.

Ramirez returned Friday night after sitting out 50 games. He went 0-for-3 with a walk before leaving the game after the sixth inning.

"Manny-wood" hits his first post steroid home run of the year.  Something tells me we may see this like 25 more times before the season ends.
