The San Diego Padres kicked off their season in the early hours of Wednesday morning San Diego time with a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Seoul, South Korea.

For the majority of the game, Padres pitchers effectively contained the Dodgers’ offense, keeping the game close. However, things took a turn in the eighth inning.

The Dodgers managed to load the bases with no outs and then tied the game with a sacrifice fly. Following that, the Padres had a chance to end the inning with a ground ball double play, but Jake Cronenworth failed to make the play as the ball went through his glove and into right field, allowing the go-ahead run for the Dodgers to score.

The ESPN commentators were equally surprised as everyone else when the Dodgers seized their initial lead in the game due to a ball slipping through Cronenworth’s glove.

Subsequently, the Dodgers capitalized with consecutive RBI singles from Mookie Betts and Shohei Ohtani, swiftly extending their lead to 5-2.

As of now, the Dodgers maintain a 5-2 advantage as the game progresses into the top of the ninth inning.
