“I just wanted to do something for the team. It was a long day. A lot of guys were grinding. A lot of tough at-bats,” Pollock told Sportsnet LA.
He played the hero more than 24 hours before Wednesday night’s game. He had a game-saving catch and a two-run single to help the Dodgers beat the Padres on Tuesday night.
The game took 5 hours and 49 minutes to complete and was one of the longest games of the year.

The Dodgers thought they had the game won in the 15th inning. Billy McKinney’s line drive scored Chris Taylor and Trea Turner would score Will Smith with a single of his own. The Dodgers had a 3-1 lead going into the bottom of the inning.
Fernando Tatis Jr. saved the Padres with a two-run home run off Corey Knebel.
It was the Dodgers who got the last laugh in the end.
“I’m pretty beat. But you feel a lot better after a win. Our guys, I gotta give those guys credit … There’s just so much to unpack, but to come away with a win was huge,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, via MLB.com.
Walker Buehler got the start for the Dodgers. He lasted 6 2/3 innings and allowed one run on three hits. He struck out eight Padres batters. San Diego started Blake Snell. He went 7 2/3 innings and allowed one run on three hits and struck out 10 batters.
