Nick Punto connects for first home run


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2013) Dodgers utility infielder Nick Punto did his best Tuesday to help Los Angeles beat Arizona. Unfortunately, his efforts fell short.

Punto homered and hit a game-tying RBI double in the seventh inning, but Arizona still managed a 5-3 win. Punto's second-inning home run, his first with the Dodgers, gave him as many through the first 32 games as slugger Matt Kemp, who hit a career-high 39 two years ago. Punto extended his home run streak to 12 consecutive seasons -- nine of which he has had only one. In 998 major-league games, he has hit a home run 16 times in 2,818 regular-season at-bats, including a career-high four in 2005 with Minnesota.

"I've seen him do that before. Unfortunately for him, it hasn't happened too many times," said Arizona outfielder Jason Kubel, who played with Punto for seven seasons in Minnesota. "He hits balls hard in BP, so I know it's there. He knows he can."

Punto is batting .387 (12 for 31) with one home run, two doubles and five RBI in his last nine games (six starts).
