    WATCH: Yangervis Solarte gets standing ovation before first at-bat since wife's death

    Earlier this month Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte lost his wife Yuliett following her battle with cancer. She was only 31. Solarte understandably left the team for a few days and returned home to his family. While he was gone, teammate Adam Rosales honored Yuliett by performing Solarte's home run celebration after going deep. Over the weekend Solarte returned to the Padres, and on Saturday night, he received his first at-bat since his wife's death. The fans at Petco Park gave him a huge ovation.

    Hunter Renfroe beat the Dodgers single-handedly

    Hunter Renfroe only needed to hit one home run to beat the Dodgers tonight, but new Padres right fielder wanted to absolutely destroy them. He was responsible for all seven of the team’s runs, bookending his game with bombs in his first and last at bats. The first was plenty impressive, and the three runs would have secured the win with room to spare. But his grand slam in the eighth inning was a rocket to the deepest part of the park. It’s a tantalizing taste of the youngster’s potential, and something we’ll hopefully be seeing a lot of in seasons to come. Renfroe’s defense, on the other hand, could still use a little work. LA nearly got on the board right away when he misread the ball off Chase
