Yasiel Puig was hitting everything over the fences today at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. In six at bats he got three hits, seven RBI’s and three runs. Coming off a multi-home run performance the night before, Puig produced his first career three-home run game to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 17-4 blistering defeat against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The win moved the Dodgers one game ahead of the Cardinals for second in National League Wild Card spot. It also pulled Los Angeles into a tie in the NL West standings. There are a few weeks left to go in the regular season and the Dodgers have now won three games in a row.
