On Sunday, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the New York Mets in the finale of the three-game set at Chavez Ravine. While the Dodgers fell behind by a large deficit, a baserunning mistake essentially thwarted any potential comeback.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, the Dodgers had runners on first and second, with Matt Kemp at the plate. Kemp hit a ground ball that began as a double play, but ended as a triple play.

While the Mets were turning the double play, Yasiel Puig bypassed the third base coach’s stop sign and was thrown out rather easily at home. Following the loss, manager Don Mattingly did not hesitate to criticize Puig for the mistake.

Mattingly voiced his frustration over Puig not being aware of the scoreboard or learning from a similar scenario that transpired earlier in the season. Puig has shown improvements in his overall game in just his second season in the Majors, but Sunday served as a reminder there are still areas that need improvement.
