Hunter Renfroe hits pinch-hit walk-off grand slam to beat Dodgers

Padres outfielder Hunter Renfroe stunned Kenley Jansen and the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon, blasting a pinch-hit walk-off grand slam, turning a 5-4 deficit into an 8-5 win.

Jansen allowed three consecutive singles to Eric Hosmer, Manuel Margo, and Wil Myers to start the inning. Myers’ single was actually a perfectly placed bunt between the shortstop and third baseman. Jansen appeared to be on his way to escaping, however, striking out Greg Garcia and getting Francisco Mejía to pop out. Renfroe, pinch-hitting for reliever Adam Warren, had other ideas:

After Sunday’s performance, Renfroe is hitting .227/.281/.545 with seven home runs, 16 RBI, and 10 runs scored in 96 plate appearances on the season.
