In the third inning, Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig led off with a ground ball up the middle. Shortstop Brandon Crawford snagged the ball and fired to first but couldn’t beat Puig, who dove head-first in an attempt to beat the play. Puig reached successfully but was ultimately picked off.
After the dive, Puig consulted with trainer Stan Conte but remained in the game until its completion. After the game, however, Puig had an X-ray on his thumb and manager Don Mattingly said his star player was “a little sore”, according to Eric Stephen of SB Nation’s True Blue L.A. However, results haven’t been released yet, which will determine the extent of the injury. In Stephen’s account, Puig’s thumb wasn’t taped, nor was it in a splint, suggesting the injury could be minor, but the team should release more details later on Saturday night or early on Sunday.
