The San Diego Padres had a pretty clever way of celebrating their 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgerson Sunday.

With the score tied at 3 in the top of the seventh, Padres outfielder Jurickson Profar faced a 1-0 pitch with the bases loaded at Dodger Stadium.

The result?

A deep hit off the wall in center field that resulted in a three-run double and the difference in the outcome.

The Padres' social media account trolled the Dodgers by referencing a less than day-old quote from their rival.

The benches cleared on Saturday during an incident between Profar and Dodgers pitcher Gavin Stone in which Profar was nearly hit by a pitch from Stone. In the fifth inning, Profar was ready to bunt when Stone launched a fastball at him and Profar took offense.

No punches were thrown, but it clearly left a sour taste.

After the game, Dodgers catcher Will Smith, who had words with Profar during the confrontation,said on Dodger Talk AM 570 LA Sports: "I don't know why we would've thrown at him. He's kind of irrelevant."

The Padres lost 5-2 on Saturday, but remembered Smith's words and responded Sunday.
