3B Martin Prado tied Saturday night's game with his first home run of the season in the sixth inning. He then kept the Padres from winning in the bottom of the 10th with outstanding stops on back-to-back plays.

Prado is hitting .441 (15-for-34) over his last nine games against the Padres.

SS Corey Seager entered as a pinch hitter Saturday after not starting against Arizona LHP Robbie Ray.

Seager, a left-hander hitter, is 2-for-18 with eight strikeouts in his career against Ray, and he struck out in all three plate appearances against Ray when the teams met last Monday

LHP Rich Hill threw about 25 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday afternoon with a bandage covering the blister on the middle finger of his left hand, the injury that has landed him on the disabled list twice this season. "He said it felt good. Tinkering with a little bit of a different grip," manager Dave Roberts said. Hill is expected to take a rehab assignment, probably as a starter but perhaps in relief, Roberts said. "I know we have potentially talked about him coming out of the pen for us. With that it would make sense for him to come out of the pen to give it a trial run," Roberts said.
