Winker mashes solo shot to pad Reds' lead (0:16)
Reds take lead on Dietrich's pinch-hit homer (0:32)

The Padres have the majors' second-lowest on-base percentage and are batting only .220 with runners in scoring position. They have scored 39 runs. The Dodgers (84) have more than doubled that.

It is really hard to hit home runs at Petco Park. Manny Machado and Yasiel Puig hit balls right on the nose and flied out to the warning track.

Fernando Tatis Jr. got brushed back by a 93-mph fastball from Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani. The locals here got very upset. Two pitches later, Tatis worked a walk. His on-base percentage is up to .367.

Votto hits 1st career leadoff homer in Reds' 4-1 win

Joey Votto hit his first career leadoff homer and Tucker Barnhart and Jesse Winker also connected for the Cincinnati Reds, who beat the San Diego Padres 4-1 Thursday night to snap a four-game losing streak.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

In his first two plate appearances, Fernando Tatis Jr. saw 14 pitches. He singled up the middle, then struck out looking on a borderline pitch. He does not seem 20.

Chris Paddack, the future anchor of this Padres rotation, gave up a leadoff home run to Joey Votto, then retired 9 in a row, the last 3 on strikeouts — all on that devastating changeup.

Reds' Votto pops out to 1B for first time in career

Reds slugger Joey Votto somehow had made 6,827 plate appearances over 13 seasons with Cincinnati without ever popping out to first base -- which he finally did in the eighth inning of Wednesday's loss at Dodger Stadium.

Dodgers tie MLB record with latest HR at home

A.J. Pollock hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers tied the major league record by homering in their 32nd consecutive home game during a 3-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday.

Alex Verdugo, blocked at every turn with the Dodgers, called it "a slap in the face" that the Reds walked Kiké Hernandez to face him in the seventh, even though it made all the baseball sense in the world. It speaks to his enduring confidence. He then followed with a run-scoring double off a same-side pitcher, displaying his ability to potentially play every day. Verdugo is OPS'ing 1.115 with infrequent playing time. That is so tough to do at 22.

Yasiel Puig tossed his bat and smacked it to the ground. He got under a very hittable pitch and popped out to end the top of the fifth, dropping his batting average to .180 this season. His Reds trail, 4-1.

Joc Pederson's BABIP in 2019: .175. I guess it doesn't matter when everything you're hitting is flying out of the park. Pederson has eight home runs after hitting one off Tyler Mahle and is hitting .306 and slugging .857 against righties. He's been a streaky hitter throughout his career (he had 10 home runs last June, for example), but he's locked in right now.

Cody Bellinger, who was jogging in the outfield pregame, is available off the bench today and could return to the lineup tomorrow, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.

Almost Like He's Psychic

Before hearing from Hank Aaron (33:10), Buster and David Schoenfield discuss Yasiel Puig's bizarre night, Clayton Kershaw's return to the mound, and Christian Yelich's dominance of the Cardinals (12:57). Plus, the "Numbers Game" with Sarah Langs (8:01) and Jackie Robinson's daughter Sharon on the impact her father had on society (30:53).

The highs and lows of Yasiel Puig's time in L.A.

Sometimes dynamic, sometimes frustrating, Yasiel Puig's stay with the Dodgers was always interesting. Here's a look back at the most memorable moments.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Joc Pederson walked off the Dodgers in emphatic fashion. He clubbed a two-run homer off Reds closer Raisel Iglesias with one on and none out in the ninth, giving his team a 4-3 win on Jackie Robinson Day.
