The 2016 season has been rough for the Padres. They were historically embarrassed 15-0 on Monday, got shut out again on Tuesday, and were trailing 4-0 in the fourth inning on Wednesday. They were facing Kenta Maeda, making his major league debut.
Despite all of the runs, the Dodgers had yet to hit a home run. Maeda changed that with one swing of the bat, hitting a solo home run to left field off of Andrew Cashner in the fourth inning.

I guess you can say Cashner… Maeda mistake.
Maeda hit two home runs for the Hiroshima Carp of the Japan Central League, in 2008 and in 2015.
