Twitter reacts to Yasiel Puig’s monster Game 7 home run

The embattled Yasiel Puig might have etched his name in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ history book Saturday evening in Milwaukee.

With his Dodgers up 2-1 in the top of the sixth in Game 7 of the NLCS, Puig took Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress deep for a three-run shot to give the defending National League champs a comfortable 5-1 lead.

It was a clutch homer at the most opportunistic time for a Dodgers team that needed some breathing room.

It also came from a player that the organization had placed on the trade block multiple times over the past few seasons.

Puig might not be Mr. October, but Twitter certainly treated him like that following the monstrous blast.
