Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig is no stranger to controversy. As matter of fact, Puig thrives on controversy. So it is no surprise that the Cuban has a very clear message after the Astros win in Game 5: There will be a Game 7 in Los Angeles.

To be exact he said:

The Houston Astros don’t need any more motivation than they already have with one more win needed to secure the franchise's first World Series title. But it doesn't hurt.

Puig will need to start picking up if wants to say brash comments. He is currently batting .143 (3x21) during the World Series. That said two of Puig’s three hits during the World Series. Key home runs at that. He had a home run in extra innings in game two and a home run to help tie the game in the ninth in game 5.

We’ll see how it plays out tonight in Game 6 at 7:20 p.m. CT.
