The Dodgers-Padres game on Wednesday night featured an incredible home run — and bat flip — from San Diego’s Fernando Tatis Jr., and ended on an incredible throw from Los Angeles’ Chris Taylor.
The Padres trailed 7-6 in the bottom of the ninth inning with runners on first and third and one out, when Manny Machado hit a line drive to left field. Dodgers left fielder Chris Taylor caught the ball, and then made a perfect one-hop throw to nail San Diego’s Trent Grisham at the plate for a game-ending double play.
