Los Angeles Dodgers heavy hitter Manny Ramirez is back in the swing of the game. Yesterday, Manny cracked one over the left-field bullpen at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona — his first home run in spring training this season. It happened in the first inning with two out during a game against the Mariners. Nevertheless, Seattle beat the Dodgers 8-to-6.

Still, Manny’s performance last night gave the Dodgers something to cheer about. After being out for a week or so with a leg injury, Manny returned to play on Monday and had a less than spectacular day at the plate. The left-fielder struck out twice against the Los Angeles Angels, who pounded the Dodgers 10-to-4. Now to the relief of the team and Dodgers fans, the 36-year-old slugger appears to have his batting groove back.
