Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Monday's win over the Reds, his 162nd career big league game. Puig's career stats, to date:

.324/.406/.552
30 home runs, 37 doubles, five triples
100 runs, 82 RBI
67 walks, 145 strikeouts
195 hits, 332 total bases
17 steals, 12 caught stealing
17 HBP, 12 outfield assists
two sacrifice bunts

But Puig has gone 10 games without a home run, his last hit on May 28. He's still stuck on 30 home runs in his career, a fine total to be sure, but one home run behind both Frank Howard and Mike Piazza for the most home runs by a Dodger in their first 162 career games.

Here is a look at the home run logs for all three players.
