MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Rod Barajas made a smashing debut for the Dodgers with a three-run homer and Ted Lilly won his fifth straight in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 5-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
Matt Kemp added a 447-foot homer in the second, but Barajas dealt the biggest blow in the sixth after starting his career in Los Angeles with consecutive doubles.
Barajas was claimed from the Mets on Sunday.
Lilly, who came over in a July trade from the Cubs, had his scoreless innings streak snapped at 17 after allowing a run in the second and trailed 3-2 after Rickie Weeks' homer and Ryan Braun's RBI double in the fifth.
But Barajas answered in a day that started with the unveiling of a statue honoring baseball commissioner Bud Selig outside Miller Park.
