Clearly Yasiel Puig is not going to do anything in typical fashion. Not his throws not his baserunning and not being sent to the doghouse. Dramatics are the order of his day every day.

Puig was benched prior to Tuesday’s game with the Miami Marlins mostly Manager Don Mattingly said because he was in a three-for-24 slump. Then Puig showed up late to Marlins Park and was fined. It was not looking like his best day.

Which naturally led to his late-game heroics because well he is Puig and things like that just seem to swirl around him.

Puig entered the game in a double switch in the sixth inning and then came to bat with the game tied 4-4 in the eighth. He hit the first pitch he saw for a go-ahead home run.

The ultimate 6-4 victory was anything but routine but then what about the high-energy Puig ever is?

His home run off left-hander Dan Jennings was a moon shot that threatened to disappear from sight falling on top of the center-field wall before bouncing out.

It was Puig’s 12th home run of the season and helped the Dodgers to avoid a tough loss. They had 16 hits on the night but bounced into four double plays and still managed to strand 12 runners.

The Marlins opened the scoring with a run in the first after Christian Yelich doubled advanced to third and scored on a pair of groundouts to second.

It remained a 1-0 game until the Dodgers scored four times in the fourth when Andre Ethier and Juan Uribe opened with singles. After Skip Schumaker bounced into his second double play of the night Miami right-hander Jacob Turner intentionally walked Tim Federowicz.

But then Turner committed one of baseball’s cardinal sins walking the opposing pitcher. The walk to Chris Capuano loaded the bases and Carl Crawford followed with an infield hit off Turner’s glove to score Ethier.

Mark Ellis singled in two more and Adrian Gonzalez singled in one more and the Dodgers had a 4-1 lead.
