He did it again: Dozier hits another leadoff homer against Royals

This is not a rerun; it's happened again.

Brian Dozier homered in his first at bat Tuesday night. That gives him home runs in five straight games, including three on Monday.

Just like his first round tripper the day before, this one started the bottom of the first inning for the Twins – and when Trevor Plouffe followed with another long ball, Minnesota had erased the two-run lead Kansas City took in the top of the inning.

You wouldn't expect the team with the worst record in the majors to provide must-see moments, but Dozier's at bats are turning into that as he climbs up various lists of records.
