Two important points regarding what you’re about to see: Dodgers supernova Yasiel Puig believes he has hit a home run in Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cardinals. In actuality, he has hit a triple. Roughly, say, 30 feet into his bat-flip-punctuated stroll, he realizes this unfolding situation and goes promptly from second gear to fifth 12th gear.
...Sure, sure: premature celebration and all of that. But in-game karma—which does not exist in the first place—tends to be forgiving when you run like ... what? Like wind fired out of a cannon? Like a cheetah on a rocket? Like a cheetah on a rocket fired out of a cannon with a strong tailwind? Yes, that one.
Above all, though, Yasiel Puig has celebrated a homer and a triple all in the span of a single at-bat.
Thanks to Butch.
