Yasiel Puig scrapes face sliding into third base

Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig scraped his face in the dirt on a rough slide into third base on a triple during Wednesday night's game in Texas.

It happened in the top of the seventh inning with two outs as Puig hit a line drive to right-center field. There was no play at third base, but Puig didn't take any chances as he slid head-first into the bag really hard. The momentum caused his face to slam into the dirt while he slid.

Fortunately, Puig appeared to be OK with no visible cuts on his face.

It was Puig's only hit of the game, and he did not come around to score. However, the Dodgers did hold on to beat the Rangers 3-1.
