The Padres rallied from a 5-0 deficit Monday night in San Francisco to score a 6-5 victory. It was the largest deficit overcome in a Padres win since Sept. 9, 2017, when the Padres came back from being down 6-0 in the bottom of the sixth to defeat Arizona 8-7.

The Padres rallied from a 5-0 deficit Monday night in San Francisco to score a 6-5 victory.

It was the largest deficit overcome in a Padres win since Sept. 9, 2017, when the Padres came back from being down 6-0 in the bottom of the sixth to defeat Arizona 8-7.

The most notable comeback win in Padres history came on Sept. 12, 1998, when the Padres rallied from a 7-0 deficit to defeat the Dodgers 8-7 before 60,823 at Qualcomm Stadium to clinch the National League West title.

Franmil Reyes’ game-winning, two-run homer was the Padres’ third pinch-hit homer of the season. It was the first of Reyes’ career.

NOTEBOOK:

-- LF Wil Myers hit the eighth career homer at Oracle Park Monday night. Myers has the second-most homers at Oracle Park by a visiting player who hasn’t played for the Giants at some point, trailing only Nolan Arenado’s 10. Two of Myers’ homers this season have come off Giants ace Madison Bumgarner.

-- SS Fernando Tatis Jr. has recorded three home runs though 11 career games. At 20 years and 96 days old, he is the youngest shortstop with three home runs through 11 games in Major League history. No shortstop of his age has ever had two home runs through their first 11 games.

-- 3B Manny Machado had his six-game hitting streak end Monday night.

-- RHP Kirby Yates has picked up a save in six of the Padres’ seven wins in 11 games. He leads the National League in saves. Craig Stammen (1.23 earned run average) and Yates (1.29) have been the eighth-ninth inning combination in four of the Padres’ wins.Padres’ wins.
