It was quite a bad Wednesday night for Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig.

Not only did he lose in game seven of the World Series to the Houston Astros, but his home also got robbed, according to TMZ Sports.

TMZ reported in part:

This ain’t the double play Yasiel Puig needed — while he and the Dodgers were losing Game 7 of the World Series, a burglar hit his house and made off with jewelry … TMZ Sports has learned.

The burglar busted a window in Puig’s San Fernando Valley home to get in, which set off an alarm … according to our law enforcement sources. We’re told the suspect quickly grabbed some jewelry and bolted — but the whole caper was caught on surveillance video.

It doesn’t get much worse than losing a game seven on national television, and then having your home knocked over during the same time. I can’t imagine the emotional toll that those two events happening back to back would have on the human psyche. Imagine walking off of the field after getting embarrassed 5-1 in game seven, and being told that your house has been robbed.

That news would break most people. Hopefully this criminal is caught, dragged in front of the people and brought to justice. Society can’t allow scumbags who rob the houses of athletes during games to go unchecked.

Thoughts and prayers out to Puig. If there’s one guy on this planet who needs a stroke of good luck it’s that dude.
