VIDEO: Yasiel Puig Home Run Extends Hitting Streak To 16 Games

After watching Clayton Kershaw allow three RBI triples, two RBI doubles and an RBI single in the second inning that put the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 7-0 hole, Yasiel Puig came up to bat for the second time in the game, still looking to extend his hitting streak.

In his first inning at-bat, Arizona Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson fooled the the 23-year-old on multiple pitches, including the pay-off pitch with the count full. With the Dodgers in need of any sort of positivity, Puig got the better of Anderson in the third inning, crushing a first-pitch fastball for a two-run homer into deep left-center.

The home run gave Puig a 16-game hitting streak and it was the eighth consecutive game Puig has an RBI and extra-base hit. The eight-game RBI streak ties for the longest in Dodgers history.
