A Walkoff, Pinch Hit Home Run.

The Padres fought the hated Dodgers two straight nights only to lose by one run each time, once in the ninth inning. Sunday looked like a repeat with the Dodgers leading by one in the ninth inning, but in the bottom of the ninth the Padres got the bases loaded, using two bunts for base hits. There were no outs, but then there were two outs, with the bases still loaded.

The Pitchers position was next, but the Padres put in reserve outfielder Hunter Refroe, who promptly drove a pitch over the wall for a pinch hit, walk off, bases loaded home run, and the Padres sent a message in all three games that the Padres would need to be respected if not feared.

When Tatis gets back, the Padres will go Dodger hunting.
