Renfroe homers off roof of brick warehouse in Padres' win

SAN DIEGO (AP) Rookie Hunter Renfroe hit the first home run in Petco Park history to land on the roof of the brick warehouse in the left-field corner and drove in four runs to lead the San Diego Padres to a 6-5 victory over the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.

With one out in the third, Renfroe drove a two-run homer off Jose De Leon onto the top of the Western Metal Supply Co. building, a remnant from the skid row neighborhood that made way for Petco Park, which opened in 2004. It went an estimated 435 feet.

Renfroe, the MVP of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League, has four homers and 12 RBIs since he was called up from Triple-A El Paso on Sept. 21. He drove in all seven runs in Tuesday night's 7-1 win, on his first grand slam and a three-run homer.

The Dodgers lost despite hitting three home runs off rookie Luis Perdomo (9-10).

Ross Stripling (5-9) allowed a run in three innings.
