LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say the home of Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig was burglarized while his team was losing the World Series.
Police say officers answered a burglary alarm at the Encino, California, home Wednesday evening and found a smashed window with several items taken. There's no word on the value of the items.
Puig was at Dodger Stadium, where the team lost Game 7 to Houston 5-1.
A neighbor, Zach Eliass, tells KABC-TV that Puig's two German shepherds got out of an open gate. Eliass took them in until Puig returned home and calmly thanked him.
Puig bought the home about a month ago.
Earlier this year, burglars hit Puig's Sherman Oaks, California, home and stole about $170,000 in jewelry and other items while he was at spring training in Arizona.
