Yasiel Puig's Lucky Charm is Luis Cruz

The embattled Luis Cruz has finally put together his finest three at-bats of the year over the past few days. They aren't consecutive at-bats, but they are very timely and very important.

Yes, Cruz is still batting only .134 on the year, but he has walked, doubled and singled his way into becoming a critical part of the Dodgers lineup... for as long as it works!
