Yasiel Puig Throw Nails Runner at Plate, Saves Dodgers (Video)
Yasiel Puig took matters into his own hands against the rival Giants by absolutely smoking a runner at the plate with a huge throw from the outfield. It’s hard to overstate the importance of this play and the importance of the series. If the Dodgers take two of the three games, they clinch the division, while San Francisco is still looking for an invite to the postseason dance. A lot at stake between two rival squads in the dregs of summer, hoping to make it a little longer into fall.
Here’s the video of Yasiel Puig‘s cannon arm nailing the runner at the plate. Be jealous:
Vin Scully helps sell the play about as much as Yasiel Puig’s prowess does. He proclaims the throw a “thing of beauty,” and you know what? He’s right. Yasiel Puig is quickly shaping up to be a Manny Ramirez 2.0 with a few more tools in his kit.
