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

The Los Angeles Dodgers slugger 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 today.

It was his seventh of the season and 534th of his career, giving the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.

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.
