Post-Game 19 Thread: Puig Show

DODGERS 4, DIAMONDBACKS 1 In what was certainly a rough week for Yasiel Puig after this revelatory news piece was published, Puig showed us some character by putting his head down this afternoon and just playing the game he knows. He did it with his arm, throwing out Miguel Montero from deep right as Montero attempted to stretch a single into a double. And he did it with his bat, jacking a three-run home run in the 6th that put the Dodgers ahead for good. Adrian Gonzalez (who extended his hitting streak to 15 games today) had just been intentionally walked to get to Puig, so Puig maaaaay...

Beckett proving he's still part of plan

LOS ANGELES -- The day the Los Angeles Dodgers pulled the trigger on their historic trade with the Boston Red Sox in August 2012, the talk was about all the money the team was taking on and if Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford could re-establish themselves as All-Star players. Hardly in the conversation was Josh Beckett. He had fallen from grace in Boston and with more than $30 million remaining on his contract, the Red Sox gladly showed him and his 5.

Good day for outfielders in a win

LOS ANGELES -- Ever since right fielder Yasiel Puig busted onto the scene and took this place by storm, the question has been what do the Los Angeles Dodgers do when all four of their star outfielders are healthy? That time finally arrived April 4 when Matt Kemp came off the disabled list, and since then, manager Don Mattingly has sent all four players through a revolving starting lineup card. While he gets the occasional stink eye from the odd man out, the real problem has been that none of the four outfielders, who are combining to make $58.

Rapid Reaction: Dodgers 8, D-backs 6

LOS ANGELES -- Heading into the start of this series, the Los Angeles Dodgers were taking ownership of the Arizona Diamondbacks, having won each of the first five meetings this season and after clinching the National League West in Phoenix and making that infamous celebratory swim.

The left-hander went on the disabled list because of inflammation in his back after that start, but he is scheduled to throw another bullpen and then throw about 15 pitches to hitters before the Dodgers' finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
