Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - There isn't a player in baseball going
better than Yasiel Puig right now.
The young Cuban phenom added another multi-hit game to his resume and knocked
in the go-ahead run in the eighth to boost the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1
victory over the division rival San Francisco Giants on Monday.
Puig went 3-for-4 at the plate and drilled his seventh homer of the season. He
has 12 multi-hit efforts in his first 20 career games.
The Dodgers picked up their third straight victory while sending the
struggling Giants to their seventh loss in 10 games and back to the .500 mark
for the first time since April 7.
Madison Bumgarner (7-5) pitched into the eighth inning, but was yanked after
allowing the first two batters to reach in the frame. He was charged with all
three runs -- two earned -- on five hits.
