2018 Topps Now - #732 - Puig's Homer Surge

Yasiel Puig is red hot and he's using his fire to punish the Cardinals. On Saturday afternoon his efforts lead to a career day that included going 3-for-6 at the plate with three home runs and seven RBI's -- both of which are new highs for Puig. Per David Wilhelm at
"I feel good at the plate," said Puig, batting .272 with 21 homers and 58 RBIs. "I'm looking for good pitches to hit and trying to hit the ball in the air like all of my teammates and coaches talk to me about every day. They tell me, 'Hit the ball in the air and stop hitting ground balls.' God blessed me with these two games."
In honor of Puig's achievement Topps has issued a new 2018 Topps Now card as commemoration. Go here to check it out and order. BTW, the Dodgers victory, 17-4, put the club in first place of the NL West.
"He's focused and he understands the importance of every pitch," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "When he does that, he's as good as anybody in baseball. For him to be as productive, have that day, get us on the board and get some space with the score, we needed every bit of it today. Guys fed off his energy."
