Five lessons from last week:

• Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig is annoying some players with his antics – or maybe it's his .391 batting average.

• If other sports followed the lead of the America's Cup challenger series, it would only be necessary for one team to show up at a game.

• Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum may not really be back, but don't try to to convince the Padres he isn't.

• Golfer Kenny Perry believes life begins at age 52 – and has two major tournament victories this year to support him.

• A's third baseman Josh Donaldson acknowledges his All-Star snub with a score-tying home run in the seventh inning and a game-winning single in the 11th to raise his batting average to .310.
