After struggling all night to score runs, the Padres finally got what they needed with two outs in the ninth last night with a game-tying, 3-run home run from Trent Grisham.

Unfortunately, C.J. Cron spoiled the comeback with a walkoff solo shot in the bottom of the inning.

Can the Padres bounce back tonight in Game 2 of the series?
