It was a crazy night in baseball.
In a game that really only had meaning to the relatives of the players, the Padres topped the Pirates, 6-5. But the big story was that Heath Bell earned his 41st consecutive save and tied him with all-time leader Trevor Hoffman for the franchise record. It also tied Bell with Hoffman and Rod Beck for fourth place on the all-time consecutive saves list.
Latos now has two career homers and his was the first by a Padres pitcher at Petco Park, which opened in 2004.
