In the final game of their four-game weekend series with the San Francisco Giants, the Los Angeles Dodgers were struggling yet again to drive runners in who had reached base. Andre Ethier had two doubles through five innings, including one coming with no outs.
Ethier was stranded on second after his first double and after advancing to third following his second double of the game, he was thrown out trying to score on a ground ball hit to second base. That kept the Dodgers scoreless when Yasiel Puig stepped in to bat in the sixth inning and the Dodgers trailing 1-0.
Puig swung at Tim Hudson’s first offering and sent the ball sailing into the Dodger bullpen. It was Puig’s second home run of the series. As is his custom, Puig finished his swing with a bat flip that Hudson didn’t take the same exception to that Madison Bumgarner did Friday night.
