Puig's pinch-hit homer helps Dodgers sweep Rockies, 5-2

LOS ANGELES (AP) Late September, a crucial series, and a postseason berth on the line. Yasiel Puig thrives in big-game situations, and once again he delivered.

Puig didn't start despite being on a tear at the plate. But he came off the bench to slug a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the seventh inning that sent the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Wednesday night to increase their NL West lead to 2 1/2 games.

"We're going to win the West again," Puig said.
