In his first game since getting his left hand plunked batting against the Cards, the irrepressible Yasiel Puig tied an obscure 113-year-old club record in the Dodgers' 8-1 win Friday in San Francisco: He had three triples.

That matched the great Jimmy Sheckard's franchise record, set opening day in 1901. The last major-leaguer to have three treys was the Twins' Denard Span in 2010.

Oh, and he also had a double, and played center field for the first time, catching the only two balls hit his way.

No respect

The Rockies decided to honor their best player Friday by treating 15,000 fans at Coors Field to a free Troy Tulowitzki jersey. Nice thought. They got the number right (2), but misspelled his name: Tulowizki. Yep, all 15,000 jerseys dropped the "t." Sheesh.

Another bad promotion

If you happen to be in Arlington, Texas, on Sunday, you might want to wander over to Globe Life Park, where the Rangers play. They'll be giving away 15,000 fedoras. Yep, fedoras. Not Stetsons. We applaud their ranging away from the cowboy motif, but what's next? Fez night?
