LOS ANGELES -- The hits just keep on coming for Yasiel Puig.
With a 4-for-5 effort in the Dodgers' 6-1 victory over the Phillies on Sunday, the rookie outfielder finished June with 44 hits, second in history in the first month of a career to Joe DiMaggio's 48 in May 1936.
Puig's first-career four-hit game also allowed him to break Steve Sax's Los Angeles Dodgers rookie record for hits in any month, set in August 1983. Pete Coscarart has the franchise rookie record, with 48 hits in September 1939 for Brooklyn. Willie Davis set the L.A.-era record with 50 hits in August 1969 during his 10th big league season.
"I'm really excited to be put on that list," Puig said through an interpreter. "But I'm more excited that the team is winning."
