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.

That’s a very unique way to win the game, and it summarizes how this juggernaut Dodgers roster can beat you in so many different ways.

With the win, the Dodgers improve to 9-4, while the Padres are two games behind at 7-6.
