Chris Capuano (pictured) of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitched a three hitter on Sunday and takes a 1-0 victory in 11 innings with a solo walk off homerun by none other than the rookie sensation Yasiel Puig to win the game. The Dodgers took 3 of 4 games from the Central Division Cincinnati Reds. On Wednesday, the Men in Blue had a 3 1/2 lead in the West. They are the best team on record since June 20 and have come from 9 1/2 games back to first place in one month. The Dodgers will travel to Chicago and St. Louis this week before coming home next weekend to host the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
