There was also a 10-4 loss at Coors Field, ending the Dodgers' three-game win streak and not making any headway on their magic number.

Yasiel Puig lined Tim Hudson's first pitch softly into center field and, as he rounded first base, did not stop running. Rather, Puig put his head down and sprinted for second, diving headfirst into the bag just ahead of the throw from a surprised Angel Pagan, and as he got to his feet clapped emphatically toward the Dodgers' dugout.
