Before the Dodgers' 3-1 win over the Padres on Wednesday night, Yasiel Puig proved to Scott Van Slyke that #PuigYourFriend is not just a hashtag -- it's a way of life ... unless you're a pitcher, that is. 
A while later after the bear hug, Puig took Trevor Cahill deep in the fourth inning for his first home run of the year.
