Borussia Dortmund climbed back into the race for a runners-up spot in the German Bundesliga with a 4-0 demolition of Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, and Christian Pulisic played a big part in the romp.

Dortmund are in third place with 54 points, and are now two points behind Schalke for second place with three matches remaining.
