In the seventh, Puig makes a great running catch in foul territory before colliding...

Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times says the Dodgers and...

TORONTO Matt Kemp used to call Ryan Braun his friend. He supported Braun when Braun successfully overturned a 2011 positive drug test. He never complained about how Braun beat him out for the National MVP award that year.

The L.A. Dodgers rookie sensation made a 280 foot throw (according to MLB Network) that was just insanely perfect from deep in right field of Nationals...
In 2011, recently suspended Ryan Braun won the National League Most Valuable Player award. Dodgers slugger, Matt Kemp, finished second in the voting, and after the news that broke Monday, he now believes the Brewers outfielder should be stripped of that honor.
