Maurer picked up the win in a non-save situation during Saturday's walkoff victory over the Giants.

Maurer came into a 3-3 game and proceeded to retire the side on just nine pitches before Hector Sanchez launched a two-run walkoff blast in the bottom half of the inning. Although the right-handed closer is 19-for-21 in save situations this season, the struggling Padres will likely use his arm whenever they deem it necessary, especially considering the fact he hasn't allowed an earned run over his last six appearances.
