Puig went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 12-5 win over the Rangers. Puig got the scoring started with a run-scoring double in the second inning, then added a two-run homer as part of a seven-run fourth inning. The 27-year-old has found his stroke at the plate in June -- in 10 games this month, he's slashing .417/.432/.806 with three homers, five doubles and nine RBI.
Puig went 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of runs scored in a 5-3 loss to Miami on Saturday. Puig was the only Dodger to record multiple hits in this one, and it was already his third multi-hit game in seven June starts. The 27-year-old has upped his slash line to .266/.324/.456 after a rough start to the year, and he has been rewarded with a promotion to fifth in the batting order.
Puig is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against Pittsburgh, Andy McCullough of The Los Angeles Times reports. Puig will retreat to the bench for the first time this month after going 0-for-4 during Wednesday's contest. In his absence, Enrique Hernandez will pick up a start in the outfield.
Puig went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Pirates. Puig was moved up to sixth in the order Tuesday, so maybe manager Dave Roberts is warming up to the idea of having one of his better bats in a more prominent spot in the lineup (20 of Puig's 42 starts have been in either the seven or eight spot). After getting off to a slow start this year, Puig has been on fire since returning from the disabled list May 9, slashing .329/.397.686 with all seven of his homers coming over that span.
Puig went 4-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's win over the Rockies. Puig's home run -- his sixth of the year -- came off reliever Chris Rusin in the ninth inning. This was Puig's first four-hit game and his seventh multi-hit game on the year. The outfielder is hitting .247/.311/.425 with 14 extra-base hits and five stolen bases.
