Dodgers rookie sensation Yasiel Puig was at it again last night, as he ripped a game-tying solo home run to left field in the sixth inning against the Braves. In doing so, he made a little bit of history.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Puig is just the second player since 1900 to hit four home runs in his first five MLB games. The other? Mike Jacobs, who accomplished the same feat with the Mets back in 2005. Weren’t expecting that one, were you? Dodgers fans will have to hope that Puig has a bit more staying power.
