Puig batted .348 (8 for 23) with three home runs and 10 RBIs during the week. Sunday, his career-long 16-game hitting streak ended in the Dodgers’ 5-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. During the streak, Puig also managed to set a franchise record by collecting at least one extra-base hit and one RBI in eight straight games.
For the season, Puig ranks among the National League leaders in batting average (.322, seventh), on-base percentage (.411, fifth), slugging percentage (.586, fourth), OPS (.997, fourth), home runs (9, tied for sixth) and RBIs (35, tied for second).
Puig was chosen NL Player of the Week seven days into his career on June 10, 2013. That was the only time he had won the award prior to today. After his batting average dipped in the final month of his rookie season, Puig adjusted his approach this season with noticeable impact.
