Austin Barnes hits pinch-hit HR on Tuesday

Catcher Austin Barnes went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit home run in the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to the Padres on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Will Smith got the start behind the plate on Tuesday and Barnes came in to pinch-hit for reliever Jimmy Nelson in the top of the ninth inning with L.A. trailing 3-1. He took Mark Melancon deep for his third home run of the season but it wasn't enough to win the ball game. Barnes is now batting .235/.350/.373 with three home runs and 15 RBI across 102 at-bats this year.
