Yasiel Puig hit a three run home run on Wednesday night against the Rockies in the 7th inning of 2-2 game. The Dodgers won the game 5-2 and extended their lead over Colorado to 2.5 games.
Puig topped the homer off with a batflip that the Dodgers celebrated on Twitter.

Sure the homer might have ended the National League west race. But that doesn’t mean a trip to the World Series. There’s a long way to go and minus last season, the Dodgers of recent years don’t have a great track record in the postseason.
So flip the bat for regular season home runs and celebrate them all you want, just don’t cry when you get one in the earhole and have another lousy postseason.
