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.
