A lot of people thought Yasiel Puig was deserving of a spot on the All-Star roster after his phenomenal first five weeks in the majors. Now, in the Los Angeles Dodgers first game back after the Midsummer Classic, Puig continued to prove why he should have been there — this time from the field.
In the seventh, Puig makes a great running catch in foul territory before colliding with the wall in the right-field corner. A catch that none of the players on the field — or the announcers —could tell if he made.
Better yet for the Dodgers, they beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 and moved one game above .500. They were 12 games below the even mark on June 12.
