Peyton Burdick hit a tiebreaking RBI double that scored Fortes, who had singled against Padres reliever Luis García (4-6) and advanced on a groundout before Burdick’s opposite field line drive bounced inside the foul line in right. I was just trying to stay inside and shoot it the other way,” Burdick said.
