Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig burglarized for the fourth time

The home of Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig was burglarized on Tuesday night, the fourth time a police report has been filed on a residence owned by the baseball star in the last 18 months.

It’s the third time Puig’s current house in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley has been burglarized, and the second time this month.

Los Angeles Police Department public information officer Jeff Lee told USA TODAY Sports that a home on the 5800 block of Louise Avenue in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Encino was reported to be burglarized around 8:10 p.m.

So, which one of you has been doing this?

Dodgers bash their way to MLB history with record-tying seven 20-homer hitters

Home runs are dramatically up in MLB this season and that means some home run history will inevitably be made. The Dodgers fulfilled that idea Wednesday, entering the history books with a booming homer from Matt Kemp in the second inning of their game against the Rockies.

Kemp’s solo shot bumped his season total up to 20 and gave the Dodgers their seventh 20-homer hitter on the season, tying an MLB record for most 20-homer hitters on a team in a single season. The Los Angeles group now includes Kemp, Cody Bellinger, Yasmani Grandal, Enrique Hernandez, Max Muncy, Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig.

The Dodgers came close to such a mark last year with six players reaching the milestone, and they managed to hit seven this year without three of the hitters from last year (Corey Seager, Chris Taylor and Justin Turner).

For those of you who were wondering how a team that has felt like it has been underperforming all season has remained in the position it is relative to the playoffs…..
