Puig & Ramirez rescue Dodgers with .400+ batting averages

Yasiel Puig (.407) and Hanley Ramirez (.404) are the first teammates in more than 80 years with concurrent batting averages of .400 or higher (minimum: 100 AB each).  The last players to do so were a pair of Hall of Famers on the 1931 Philadelphia Athletics, Al Simmons and Mickey Cochrane, both at .403 between games of a doubleheader on May 30, 1931.  (Mid-game BA’s were not considered; only those at the end of a game.)

The Dodgers have the best record in the majors since the date of Puig’s debut (21–13 since June 3).  Prior to that, Los Angeles was in last place in the NL West with a 23–32 mark.
