For the first time since Major League Baseball instituted the free runner on second base, a game went sixteen innings. The Los Angeles Dodgers finally beat thanks to AJ Pollock’s two-run homer the San Diego Padres 5-to-2. They remained 2½ games out of first place in the National League Western Division.

The game lasted almost six hours. Both Walker Buehler and Blake Snell were magnificent, but they received nothing for their efforts. The Dodger pitching staff hurled a no -hitter from the sixth to the fifteenth inning when a slumping Fernando Tatis, Jr., blasted a two-run homer to knot the score at three after Billy McKinney and Trea Turner had run-producing singles. the Dodgers issued Major-League record of eight intentional walks because the manager of the Padres ran out of position players in the tenth.
