Yasiel Puig waited for his moment, scampered home on an infield hit -- and danced in celebration

Yasiel Puig was a man on a mission. After Matt Kemp crushed a solo homer in the eighth inning of Sunday's game with the Rockies to put Los Angeles up, 5-4, Puig doubled and had one goal: Score another run.
