Yasiel Puig did not start Friday night’s game against the Colorado Rockies because left hander Kyle Freeland was on the mound.
Puig was hitting under.200 with zero home runs against lefties so it made sense as to why Roberts would decide to leave him out of the lineup.
After Corey Seager left the game with a hamstring cramp, Puig entered and immediately made his presence felt with this absolute bomb to center field.

Struggles go out the window when the whole team is hitting like the Dodgers are. They say hitting is contagious and it looks like the entire team has the hitting bug right now.
