Yasiel Puig Makes Smashing Debut for Dodgers in Win

LOS ANGELES
Adrian Gonzalez and Scott Van Slyke homered, Yasiel Puig had a successful major league debut and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Monday night.

Stephen Fife (1-0) allowed one run and five hits in 5 1-3 innings to earn his first major league win. The right-hander was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque earlier in the day to replace left-hander Chris Capuano, who was scratched because of a strained left triceps.

Puig batted leadoff and went 2 for 4 with two singles, including one in his first at-bat that drew high-fives from his new teammates.
