Joey Gallo Discusses Yankees Trade, Moving to L.A.

Joey Gallo is getting a fresh start with the Dodgers, and he's making the most of it.

On Wednesday night, the outfielder hit his first pinch-hit three-run home run as a Dodger,

extending Los Angeles' lead to four runs in what would be the team's tenth straight win.

Gallo explained after the game that he welcomes the trade but does not blame the Yankees for it.

"It was beneficial to both parties," Gallo said. "It was the best opportunity for me, and they got a great All-Star outfielder to replace me.

" I'll never feel bad about it because I didn't do my job to the best of my abilities, but it's always nice to start over."
