Dodger Stadium was full of emotions as Yasiel Puig, right fielder for the Cincinnati Reds, wore red for the first time in Los Angeles. Fans cheered and yelled Puig's name as he went up to bat on Monday night. However, on Tuesday night I heard some fans in attendance that booed the former Dodger.
After playing for the Dodgers for six seasons, Puig was traded to the Reds. The three-game series wrapped up on Wednesday, April 17th with the Dodgers sweeping the Reds.
Here's a breakdown of Puig's performance during the series.
Game one: April 15th
Puig hit a two-run homer in the first inning off of Clayton Kershaw.
Game two: April 16th (USC Night)
Tuesday's game was also L.A.'s annual USC Night at Dodger Stadium. Puig was unable to get on base for the Reds: flying out to right field in the second inning, striking out swinging on the fourth inning, popping up to second base on the fifth inning and flying out to center field on the eighth inning.
Game three: April 17th
Puig scored twice: In the seventh inning, he singles to center field and scored after Eugenio Suárez grounded out to shortstop. In the ninth inning, Puig stole second base and scored thanks to Matt Kemp's sacrifice fly ball.
Puig and the Reds will start their three-game series against the San Diego Padres tonight, April 18th at 7:10 PM PST at Petco Park.
