Post-Game 81 Thread: Puig Stays Hot; Dominguez a Scorcher



Stephen Fife: Hot. After throwing 7 shutout innings, he gets the win to move to 3-2 and stake a claim to be the legit #4 or #5 starter we need.

Puig: En fuego. Goes 4-5, a HR short of hitting for the cycle. Finishes June (minus the first two days of the month) .436/.467/.713. Had 44 hits in his first calendar month, second in MLB history behind some dude named Joe DiMaggio (48). Beats Steve Sax's rookie record for hits in debut month.

Jose Dominguez: Bringing the heat. In his MLB debut, threw 1-2-3 inning in relief. Dominguez threw 10 fastballs in his first MLB inning: 2 at 101 MPH, 1 at 100 MPH, 6 at 99 MPH, 1 at 97 MPH (thanks to Bill Shaikin for this info).

Dodger fans: Smokin'. With 42,405 today we pass the 2 million mark in attendance, first in MLB.

Way to finish June strong, lads. Last week we were 9.5 games out of first. After today's win, we're 4 games out. One game at a time...
