VIDEO: Yasiel Puig ejected for second time in his career

18 Comments

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was tossed out of Saturday night’s game against the Padres in the bottom of the third inning for arguing an iffy strike call on a low and inside pitch …

According to Pedro Moura of the Orange County Register — and you can kind of see this in the video above — Puig called the umpire “stupid” just before he got heaved. It was Puig’s second career ejection. The other one was for that brawl with the D’Backs in June 2013. The Dodgers went on to beat San Diego by a final score of 1-0 on Saturday and now have sole possession of first place in the National League West.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
