Yasiel Puig was breaking records, taking names and making sure Dodgers fans remember him as the team embarks on a nine-game road trip.

That shouldn't be a problem.

Puig went 4 for 5 with two stolen bases and two runs scored in support of Stephen Fife, who threw seven shutout innings, as the Dodgers defeated the Phillies 6-1 on Sunday at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers (38-43) took three of four from the Phillies (39-44) and went 6-1 on the homestand. The 81st game marked the midway point in the season for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers have won eight of their last nine games to finish the month of June with a record of 14-13, the first winning month of the season. Los Angeles also pulled within four games of first-place Arizona.

Puig and Joe DiMaggio are the only players in Major League Baseball history with at least 40 hits and four home runs in their first calender month in the major leagues.

Puig is second all-time in the major leagues for hits in a player's first calender month with 44. Joe DiMaggio is first with 48 hits in 1936.

"He's pretty amazing. It's pretty special to be a part of this," said A.J. Ellis, who went 3 for 4 with an RBI.

Puig's third hit of the day, a blooper just inside the right-field line, was his 43rd of the season and tied Steve Sax for most hits in a month by a Dodgers rookie. Sax did it in August of 1982.
Puig's fourth hit, a lead-off line-drive double down the right-field line, gave him the Dodgers rookie record.

He was caught trying to steal third later in the inning, but nobody will remember that after he saddled up next to DiMaggio in the record books.

Puig said he was not familiar with DiMaggio, but was happy for the feat nevertheless.

"I'm really excited to be put on that list," he said. "But I'm more excited that the team is winning."

It was Puig's first four-hit game, and he was a home run short of the cycle when he came up to bat in the bottom of the eighth inning. Puig, who has hit safely in 22 of 26 major league games, struck out swinging and looked like he was swinging for the fences, which he denied.
