Sat, 22 Apr 2017 19:13:08 GMTThe Los Angeles Dodgers had no problem giving away a baseball game on Friday night. Thanks to an unexpected bullpen implosion, they saw a one-run lead turn into a 13-5 loss when the Arizona Diamondbacks pelted them for nine runs in the eighth inning. Case in point, right fielder Yasiel Puig did his best to live up to his #PuigYourFriend mantra.

That game, which can be streamed on our MLB page, the Free Game of the Day tab or right here in this very post, will begin at 4:10 p.m. ET.
