Yasiel Puig went 4-for-5 with three triples, a double, two RBI, and two runs scored in the 8-0 win over the Giants Friday.

Puig had a chance to become the first player with four triples in over 100 years, but flew out in his final at-bat. Instead, he became just the 33rd player in MLB history to have three triples in a single game. If he is going to hit like this while playing center field, which he did for the first time this season Friday, manager Don Mattingly may want to keep him there. Side note, it is far more unlikely for a player to have three triples in a single game than it is for one to get a cycle as there have been, in comparison, 300 players to have hit for the cycle over the last 100 years.
