MINNEAPOLIS -- From the moment Yasiel Puig broke into the big leagues, its been go, go, go for the 23-year-old Cuban outfielder. Filip Chlapik Jersey . Now that Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is seeing his electrifying, and sometimes maddening, player start to slow things down on the diamond, theres no telling how far his talents can take him. Puig tied a career high with four hits and drove in two runs and Dan Haren struck out seven in 6 2-3 innings to help the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 9-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins in Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader on Thursday. "His whole game seems to be calming down, base-running, defence," Mattingly said. "At the plate were seeing him be more patient. The sky is the limit for Yasiel Puig. "If he continues down this path, then he changes everything with how you pitch him, what you can do to him, because hes going to force you to throw the ball over the plate." Haren (4-0) gave up four runs -- three earned -- and six hits with three walks and Juan Uribe also tied a career-high with four hits and two RBIs for the Dodgers. Chris Perez pitched 1 2-3 innings for his first save. Mike Pelfrey (0-3) gave up five runs and seven hits and walked three in four innings for the Twins. Brian Dozier had two hits and two RBIs for Minnesota. The Dodgers looked uncomfortable in the 40-degree weather in the first inning, when throwing errors by Carl Crawford in left field and catcher Miguel Olivo on the same play allowed Trevor Plouffe to score from first base on a bloop single by Jason Kubel to give the Twins a 2-0 lead. But Pelfrey, who has not won a game at Target Field since April 16, 2013, gave the lead right back when his walk to Olivo loaded the bases with no outs in the second inning. Puigs two-run double made it 3-2 and the Dodgers scored two more on a double from Matt Kemp and a single from Uribe in the third to take control. "Weve got to do something about it, we have to fix it," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said of Pelfrey. "Were trying to get him on the right path." Puig also had singles in the first, fourth and sixth innings and walked in the eighth, the third time hes had four hits in a game. He is batting .400 (16 for 40) with three doubles and 12 RBIs in his past 10 games to raise his average to .308 for the season and said hes worked with hitting coach Mark McGwire on his approach at the plate. "Hes helped me not get too anxious at the plate," Puig said through an interpreter. "And its helped me just connect with pitches that would normally give me trouble." The Twins seemed poised for a big inning in the fifth when Doziers single drove in two runs and a walk to Joe Mauer gave them runners on first and second with nobody out. Mattingly then challenged a close play at second base, when Hanley Ramirez stabbed a line drive from Plouffe and, in one motion, flipped the ball from his glove to second baseman Dee Gordon to try and double up Dozier. Umpires ruled Dozier safe on the play, but after a two-minute replay, officials overturned the call and ruled Dozier out. Jason Kubel grounded out in the next at-bat to end the inning and Haren escaped with a 5-4 lead. "That fifth inning was close to falling apart," Haren said. "Id be lying if I told you I didnt catch a break there, Hanley making a good play and getting the double play. ... Besides that I felt really good. I had a good rhythm the whole game." Gardenhire had a challenge of his own in the eighth inning when Kubel was called out on a play at second base. Gordon dropped the throw from Ramirez on the play, and replay officials quickly overturned the play to call Kubel safe. NOTES: Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, on the disabled list since after his first start of the season with strained shoulder, threw 86 pitches and allowed two runs in five innings in a start for Double-A Chattanooga on Wednesday night and appears in line to rejoin the rotation early next week. ... Red Patterson will make his MLB debut in the nightcap for the Dodgers against Twins LHP Kris Johnson. Both were called up to start the game under a provision that allows rosters to expand to 26 for a doubleheader.

Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Los Angeles Clippers finally got themselves together.After five lacklustre games to open the season, including a 17-point loss at Golden State, their offence, defence and energy came together in a 106-102 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.We came out this year like we won something last year and everyone else came out like they got their heart broken, said DeAndre Jordan, who had 14 rebounds. We just needed to get back to what got us to where we were last year.J.J. Redick broke out of a shooting slump with 30 points, and Blake Griffin added 23 while playing sick. Chris Paul had 22 points and 11 assists, and Jamal Crawford scored 20 points in his first start of the season.Im a positive person and my glass is always half-full, Redick said.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and Robin Lopez scored 17 of his 19 points in the first half.Another slow start led to the Clippers giving up 62 points in the first half, and Griffin looked like he was about to die at halftime, Paul said. He was laid out in there.I thought I was (dead), said Griffin, who felt nauseous. It wasnt too bad until I started running up and down.Clippers coach Doc Rivers tried to take Griffin out, and he refused.Without him, we dont win this game, Paul said.Griffin milked what little energy he had and the Clippers rallied in the third, when they put together a nice run to leave the game tied at 79 heading into the final quarter.They came out in the second half with a lot more energy and were more active and picked it up and played at a different level, Lillard said. Redick was the difference. We should have defended him tighter but he made it tough on us when he started making shots.Griffin and Redick combined to score 15 of the Clippers first 17 points of the fourth, extending their lead to 96-88.

Its frustrating when you have a team as skilled as we are and we lose like that.Paul was equally hot over the same stretch, scoring eight in a row to keep Los Angeles ahead 104-100.Usually the law of averages will take over and you make a few, Paul said. Other than down the stretch when we let Damian make all those buckets, our defence was pretty good.The Clippers caught a break after Lillards running layup cut Portlands lead to two. Paul missed, but Jordan swatted the ball out to Crawford on the perimeter with 7 seconds left. Aldridge fouled Crawford, who made both for a 106-102 lead.Portlands Wesley Matthews, who finished with 14 points, missed a 3-pointer in the final seconds.The Clippers put together a 14-0 run to take a 77-71 lead with 3:46 to go in the third.
