Padres beaten by triple play, Dodgers in 5-4 loss
Scott told a pool reporter that the umpiring crew didn't see the ball hit the batter.
"It was off the bat and then straight down," he said. "We saw several angles, including the replay here and we also called in and asked for the replay from New York and looked at that. The ball went straight down and I thought it hit the bat. I heard bat."
Gordon singled home the winning run in the bottom of the ninth for the Dodgers' sixth straight win.
"It was just a crazy occurrence," Headley said about the triple play.
Black said, "We're been involved in some close games that have hinged on a key play, especially late in the game."
Brad Brach (0-1) took the loss in the series finale. San Diego opens a three-game series at Colorado on Monday.
The Padres rallied with three runs in the sixth after trailing 4-1. Pinch-hitter Jeremy Hermida had a tying two-run single off Josh Lindblom in the sixth. Orlando Hudson had a bases-loaded RBI single through the hole past Gordon to finish Clayton Kershaw, and Hermida followed with his bases-loaded single.
Padres starter Edinson Volquez gave up four runs and six hits in five innings. He struck out two and walked five. He hasn't reached the sixth inning in either of his two starts against the Dodgers this season.
Catcher Nick Hundley snapped an 0-for-21 skid with a single in the third. His drought was the longest to start a season by a Padres non-pitcher since Ozzie Smith's club record 0-for-32 stretch in 1979.
