On a night when
The Dodgers swept the three-game series and have now beaten the Diamondbacks seven consecutive times.
Puig homered, doubled and added two singles on the night. He is nine for 15 since coming off the disabled list last week and has provided a needed spark.
And it turns out, nobody is perfect.
But when the Dodgers called on him to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning Wednesday, his first batter, A.J. Pollock, took him deep for a solo home run to even the score, 6-6. It was Jansen's first blown save this season, and dating to last season, the first run he had allowed in 18 innings.

After Joc Pederson walked, Puig drilled his third home run of the season. The three-run blast to center gave the Dodgers a 4-1 lead.
Anderson continued to struggle in the third, allowing two more hits to lead off the inning. Tomas then crushed a pitch to deep center, but Pederson made a leaping catch at the wall to rob Tomas of a homer.

The Diamondbacks pulled to within a run in the fifth inning when Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer and Tomas, this time hitting the ball where it could not be caught, added a solo homer.
The Dodgers added a run in the sixth inning. Alberto Callaspo led off with a double, was sacrificed to second on a Rollins' bunt and scored on a sacrifice fly when Enrique Hernandez flied out to deep right field.
