Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig hustled to turn a single into a double and somehow turned that into a game of Patty Cake with Diamondbacks second baseman Jean Segura.

It started with a line drive single to left field off of Patrick Corbin in the bottom of the fifth inning with two outs. As left fielder Yasmany Tomas was shaded towards left-center, it took him a while to retrieve the ball, so Puig broke for second. Tomas fired a two-hopper wide of second base, so Segura had to lunge to corral it. Puig slid in head first, attempting to avoid Segura’s tag. But Puig slid too far off the bag. He deked with his right¬†hand to touch the base, forcing Segura to commit with what little range of motion he had, and then Puig reclaimed second base with his left hand.

Great effort all around by Puig.
