Yasiel Puig Initiates Launching Sequence, Throws Out Marlon Byrd

Puig was unable to record the out on Justin Turner's little flare to shallow right in the second inning in Los Angeles, so he just mowed down Marlon Byrd foolishly attempting to advance to third instead. Watch more angles—it looks like he's throwing a golf ball from his ear—and listen to Vin Scully call it here.

Byrd would make up for it next inning with a three-run home run on a 3-0 green light to give the Mets a 4-0 lead. It was his 100th career home run.
