The Wild Horse put together an absurd .429/.500/1.190 with five home runs, a double, three walks, nine RBI, seven runs and a stolen base over the Dodgers weekend. With this performance, Yasiel Puig has been named the National League player of the week. Those 5 home runs were all in a 24-hour span which above all, came during a huge series vs the Cardinals.

7 RBI’s In One Game

7 of those RBI’s were in one day, so let’s take a look at those highlights!

 

Paramount Performance for Puig

The Dodgers are battling for their division and a possible wild card spot versus the Cardinals. His performance was at a key time. Breaking out during September is extremely ideal. Dodger fans can only hope he keeps his bat hot for the next month and then some.
