Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig went 3-for-4 with two home runs, five RBIs and two runs scored on Tuesday night, helping lead his team to a 9-7 victory over San Diego at Dodger Stadium. More significant, the 22-year-old Cuban became the first Dodger in franchise history to hit more than one home run in his first two career games. He also became the first Dodger with five RBIs in his first two games since Spider Jorgensen drove in six runs on April 17, 1947, against the Boston Braves, according to the team and Elias Sports Bureau. The last player in the majors to hit more than one home run in his first two career games was Baltimore's Manny Machado, who connected for two at home against Kansas City on Aug. 10, 2012.
