Puig atones for misplay with great catch in fourth inning

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig had a lowlight and highlight on consecutive plays in the fourth inning of Saturday night's Freeway Series game against the Angels.

After Collin Cowgill's double sailed over Puig's head, and Puig's initial attempted throw slipped out of his hand, Puig quickly atoned by running down Johnny Giavotella's long drive to right-center field on the warning track.

Despite the catch, Cowgill tagged to third and came home on a wild pitch by Sergio Santos.
