Yasiel Puig hit his fourth home run tonight in his fifth game since coming up from the minors — he was apparently sent here by the baseball gods to save the Dodgers' season. The Dodgers won 2-1, in ten innings over Atlanta. Puig connected this time in the sixth inning off veteran Braves lefthander Paul Maholm. Puig is now tied with Andre Ethier for fourth on the team in home runs. Should I mention that Ethier has come to bat 198 times this season, and Puig has come to bat 19 times in his life?
