Apparently, two singles and a  on Monday night were just the appetizer. outfielder continued to steal the show in Hollywood with two home runs in his second career game on Tuesday night. The first was a three-run shot to left to tie the sly Gilmour is grateful to the coaching staff for backing him after starring in victory over Everton.For the second time in five days Gilmour showed no nerves on such a big stage, and he explained afterwards why he performs with no fear despite his tecore against the Padres. The second, a line drive to the opposite field, tacked on an insurance run for the Dodgers. Here’s the video:

“Qm proposed a potential takeover offer but it was shrugged off by the Russian, says the Telegraph.There have been rumours that the billionaire businessman was looking to sell since the UK tightened its regulations on visas for wealthy foreign nationalue viva Cuba! Viva Puig!” was the call from Vin Scully, pretty much the only 85-year-old man who could pull off saying that and sounding cool.

Puig, 22, became the first player in franchise history to have a two-homer game among the first two games of his big-league career. The Dodgers have been around since the dawn of time (actually 1890 under various nicknames and in two locales), but he’s the first. He’s also the first player in baseball history to have a two-homer game within the first two games of his career from the leadoff spot.

In his first two big-league games, Puig has gone 5 for 8 with a double, d to defeat West Ham on Saturday.Substitute Alexandre Lacazette’s goal 12 minutes from time, which was confirmed by the video assistant referee, lifted the Gunners up to ninth, five points behind Chelsea in fourth.The France forward swept a close-ranthe two homers and five RBI. Los Angeles signed him to a seven-year, $42 million contract last summer.

I’m guessing Andre Ethier will be traded in like a week at this rate.
