Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig hit three residence runs in a highway recreation in opposition to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, giving him 5 homers over the previous two days.

After hitting a pair of residence runs in a 3-Zero win over the Playing cards Friday, Puig went yard within the fourth, fifth and eighth innings Saturday.

As seen within the following video courtesy of Fox Sports activities: MLB, Puig’s second homer Saturday was a three-run bomb that prolonged L.A.’s result in 8-4:

Puig’s third home run of the game was also a three-run tater, which put the contest even further out of reach at 13-4.

The 27-year-old never had a three-homer game in his career before Saturday, and he now has 21 home runs on the season.

While both of Puig’s home runs Friday were important since it was a 3-0 game, his most impressive homer of the past two days was arguably his three-run shot in the fifth inning Saturday.

Per Dodger Insider, that residence run had an exit velocity of 114.Three mph, which marks the hardest-hit round-tripper by any Dodgers participant this season.

With Puig crushing every thing in sight, Forbes‘ Howard Cole joked that no ballpark can maintain him:

Despite missing much of July with an oblique strain, Puig’s seven RBI in opposition to St. Louis Saturday give him 58 on the season. 

The one-time All-Star is now one in every of six Dodgers gamers with no less than 20 residence runs for the workforce this season, becoming a member of Yasmani Grandal, Cody Bellinger, Joc Pederson, Enrique Hernandez and Max Muncy.

Puig’s 21 residence runs are the second-most he has had in a single season behind the 28 he hit in 2017.

The Dodgers entered play Saturday only a half-game behind the Colorado Rockies for the NL West lead and in a tie with the Cardinals for the Nationwide League’s second wild-card spot.
