Opening Series: Yasiel Puig had an interesting night on the bases

Yasiel Puig has had a pretty darn interesting time in Australia.

In the opening game, the Dodgers outfielder went 0-5 with three strikeouts. As a lead off man. The Dodgers managed to win 3-1 without him doing much of anything.

In the second game, Puig again demonstrated the negative side of his up-and-down baseball self, getting caught in a totally dumb rundown after driving in a run with a single.

Later, Puig got grazed by a Trevor Cahill pitch. And flipped the bat away because…he’s Yasiel Puig.

And then in the top of the sixth with the Dodgers already up 5-0, Puig smacked a double to drive in Dee Gordon.

Then got thrown out at third trying to advance on a passed ball.

I guess by now Dodgers fans are used to telling themselves they’ll have to take the good with the bad when it comes to Puig.

By the way, for all the Dodger fans complaining about not being able to see the game because of “Darth Warner?” At least you have the GIFs.

That’s something, right?
