Video: Dodgers-Padres game ends on thrilling double play
The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres 7-6 on Wednesday night and locked up the win on a thrilling double play to end the game.
Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen was pitching in the bottom of the 9th and looking to end a 7-5 game. He got a strikeout but then allowed a walk and two hits to bring in a run and put runners on the corners with one out.
Manny Machado was up and hit a line drive to left field that was caught by Chris Taylor, who then threw home to get Trent Grisham at the plate to end the game.
