Padres Return To Playoffs After 14 Long Years

Sep 20, 2020 11:09 PM

After 14 long years, the San Diego Padres are back in the playoffs, this time with a cast of stars who never flinch when they get down.

The Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 7-4 on Sunday with a three-run rally in the 11th inning that included a go-ahead double by newcomer Mitch Moreland.

In one of many bizarre twists to 2020, the clincher came in the finale of a series that was moved from Seattle because of poor air quality due to wildfires, so the Mariners were considered the home team and batted last.
