With some help from teammate Scott Van Slyke, Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge before Friday's game against the Brewers. Van Slyke dumped one cooler on Puig, who then dumped another cooler on himself for good measure.

Comedian George Lopez chose Puig to partake in the challenge, which raises ALS awareness and money for the cure of ALS.

Puig challenged Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez -- in town for a three-game set with the Dodgers -- after he dumped the second cooler on himself.

"Carlos Gomez," Puig said. "You next."
