Dodgers’ Puig summed up in one adventurous inning
Baseball’s biggest lightning rod (now that A-Rod has been suspended for the year) gave everyone quite a ride during the second inning of Thursday’s Dodgers-Giants game.
Los Angeles outfielder Yasiel Puig dropped a routine fly ball before making a spectacular catch minutes later.
Puig’s adventures began when Giants second baseman Brandon Hicks lofted an easy fly ball to right field. Puig nonchalantly tried to make the catch, but that didn’t happen. However, he managed to get a force out at second.
The next batter, center fielder Gregor Blanco, then hit a deep fly ball to right and Puig did this.
