Puig crashes into wall, but can't prevent walk-off win for Marlins
MAY 04, 2014 6:30p ET
Yasiel Puig was up to his old tricks on Sunday.
The Dodgers and Marlins were locked in a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the ninth when Miami second baseman Jeff Baker hit a long fly ball to right field. The ball sailed towards the wall and Puig raced after it at full speed. He leapt to make the catch and crashed into the wall, missing by only a small margin.
The result was a walk-off win for the Marlins. Puig was left on the warning track and was slow to get up. He was helped off the field by team trainer Stan Conte.
Fortunately, it appears Puig will be fine after concussion test results came back negative. What a play it would have been though.

Mattingly said Puig was "pointing to multiple areas" when asked where it hurt. Including head. Sounds like possible concussion. #Dodgers— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) May 4, 2014
#Dodgers say Puig was given a concussion test. Results negative. Will be monitored. Status day to day. Also hit lower left leg on wall.— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) May 4, 2014
Initial word is puig should be ok. While teammate described him as having "bell rung" LAD official said he checked out fine— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) May 4, 2014
