LOS ANGELES -- Two important points regarding what you're about to see: Dodgers supernova Yasiel Puig believes he has hit a home run in Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cardinals. In actuality, he has hit a triple. Roughly, say, 30 feet into his bat-flip-punctuated stroll, he realizes this unfolding situation and goes promptly from second gear to fifth 12th gear. Witness ... 

In GIF form, where you can see Puig from start to finish:

Sure, sure: premature celebration and all of that. But in-game karma -- which does not exist in the first place -- tends to be forgiving when you run like ... what? Like wind fired out of a cannon?

Above all, though, Yasiel Puig has celebrated a homer and a triple all in the span of a single at-bat.
