2. June 14, 2019: Padres 16, Rockies 12
With the Padres trailing by six runs entering the ninth inning, Fernando Tatis Jr. starts and finishes one of the most thrilling rallies in franchise history. The Padres would score six in the ninth, then five more in the 12th -- including Renfroe's third homer of the game.
8. July 8, 2018: Padres 4, D-backs 3
In one of the wackiest Padres games in recent memory, Miguel Diaz strikes out four batters in one inning in extras, and Wil Myers launches three home runs. The last of the three is a moonshot game-winner in the 16th inning off Jeff Mathis (yes, longtime catcher Jeff Mathis) -- after Myers had forgotten the count and trotted to first base thinking he’d walked.
And here are some other games from around the league you might like:
Aug. 17, 2019: Brewers 15, Nationals 14
Christian Yelich homered -- No. 40 -- as part of a three-homer, four-run ninth inning for a 12-11 Brewers lead, only to see the Nationals come back to tie it up against Josh Hader. Yelich homered again in the 13th for a 13-12 lead, only to see the Nats come back again. Finally, in the 14th, the Brewers scored twice and this time held off another Nats surge.
June 27, 2019: Dodgers 12, Rockies 8
The Dodgers overcame a shaky Coors Field start from Walker Buehler (seven runs) with a six-homer onslaught -- two by Max Muncy -- for their 12th consecutive win over Colorado.
July 25, 2019: Orioles 10, Angels 8
The Orioles and Angels had been engaged in a marathon, 6-hour, 16-inning, back-and-forth affair when things went from simply weird to historic. That's because of who closed the game -- outfielder Stevie Wilkerson, who recorded a 1-2-3 bottom of the 16th throwing nothing but mid-50 mph floaters to record the first save by a position player in MLB history.
July 12, 2019: Rangers 9, Astros 8
The Rangers scored five runs in the last three innings to erase the Astros' 8-4 lead. The Rangers hit five home runs in this game, including three off Astros starter Gerrit Cole.
