Pollock’s homer sends Dodgers to 5-3 win over Padres in 16

After 16 innings that took 5 hours, 49 minutes to play, featuring 489 pitches by 19 pitchers who stranded a combined 35 baserunners, the streaking Los Angeles Dodgers finally got to celebrate. AJ Pollock led off the 16th with a two-run homer and the Dodgers outlasted the struggling San Diego Padres 5-3 early Thursday in by far the longest major league game since pandemic rules were implemented last year. No game had gone longer than 13 innings since MLB began putting an automatic runner on second base to start extra innings during the shortened 2020 season.
