Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig is known for making some crazy highlight plays. And while this one didn't make much of a difference in the final score, it was still pretty impressive.

In the bottom of the sixth inning of Friday night's game against the Chicago Cubs, Hanley Ramirez hit a ground ball to third. On the resulting double-play attempt, Puig kept running past third base and charged toward home plate. After sliding past Welington Castillo, Puig faked him out to touch home and score a run.

Unfortunately for the Dodgers, the run only cut their deficit to six in an 8-2 loss.
