Yasiel Puig out of Dodgers’ lineup with sore hamstring

1 Comment

Yasiel Puig went 3-for-5 with a home run in the Dodgers’ win over the Mariners on Monday and he was the supplier of a Gatorade bath for 10th-inning hero Alex Guerrero, but Puig came out of the game with some hamstring discomfort and he is not in the starting lineup for Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Andre Ethier will start in right field vs. Seattle.

Puig is batting .222/.300/.481 with two home runs and three RBI in six games this season for the Dodgers, who have a record of 4-3.

Update (9:04 PM EST): The game went into a rain delay with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning of a 2-2 tie, so the game isn’t official yet. Which means the Orioles aren’t yet the official record holders.

A third-inning solo home run by Austin Meadows off of Asher Wojciechowski on Thurday night marked the 259th home run Orioles pitching has allowed this season, setting a new major league record, per MASN’s Roch Kubatko. The previous record was held by the 2016 Reds at 258. Willie Adames hit No. 260, a game-tying solo shot in the fifth inning. The Orioles will have 34 more games to add on to their record after tonight.

The Yankees have famously accounted for 61 of the 260 home runs (23.5%) against Orioles pitchers this season. The Red Sox are next at 28 followed by the Twins and Blue Jays at 23 each.

David Hess has accounted for the most home runs on the O’s staff, yielding 28 dingers. Dylan Bundy is next at 25 homers allowed.

The Orioles are not the only team that will pass the 2016 Reds. The Mariners are on pace to allow 275 home runs. The Yankees, 266. Phillies, 262. Angels, 259. Pretty amazing.
