Tatis cashed in a leadoff walk by Jake Cronenworth with an RBI double to center on an 0-2 offering. Tatis then scored on a game-tying two-run double by Jurickson Profar. While it was a nice rally, the Padres still wound up falling in the 10th. With the two-hit effort, Tatis is now hitting a ridiculous .302/.387/.702 with 26 homers, 57 RBI and 17 stolen bases.
