The Dodgers and Padres played a crazy weekend series where Melvin Upton hit a walk-off home run to win Friday night. And the Padres won 3-2 in the 11th inning on Saturday night on a walk-off bases-loaded walk. But before that happened, it looked like the game would end earlier when Upton again was at the plate.

He hit a fly ball deep to left field and it looked from the camera work that the ball would go out for a walk-off game-ending home run, but it was caught by Trayce Thompson at the wall instead. It fooled the men calling the game for both the Dodgers and the Padres.
