  • The Arizona Diamondbacks came back from a 6-0 deficit to defeat the San Diego Padres on Tuesday.
  • The Diamondbacks won on a walk-off in the bottom of the ninth inning.
  • Padres 1B Eric Hosmer made a terrible decision to end the game.

The San Diego Padres had a 6-0 lead against the Arizona Diamondbacks and everything seemed to be going right. Then, things unraveled quickly.

By the end of the eighth inning, Arizona had tied the Padres, 6-6.

In the bottom of the ninth, Christian Walker stepped up to the plate with runners on first and second, two outs, and a chance to end the game.

Walker hit a ground ball…and the walk-off happened, although thanks to a terrible decision by Eric Hosmer.

Hosmer smothered the ground ball but fired it to second, where CJ Abrams was late, and the runner was safe, sending Josh Rojas all the way home from second and giving Arizona the lead.

Seriously, nobody knows why Hosmer didn’t throw the ball to first or, at the very least, hold it and load the bases.

Eric Hosmer Got Ripped Apart Following The Play

This didn’t go over well, and Hosmer’s decision-making will be questioned even further.

It looked like Hosmer had a much easier play throwing to first, and if he did that, the game probably goes to extra innings. Ouch.

Thankfully, there are many more games for Hosmer to redeem himself, but this one will hurt for a long time.
