San Diego Padres Make History By Setting Major League Baseball Record For Consecutive Grand Slams

August 20, 2020

The San Diego Padres have set a Major League Baseball record for the most consecutive games with a grand slam. They are the only team in MLB history to hit a grand slam home run in 4 games in a row.

With a swing of the bat, San Diego Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer helped his team set the MLB record for the most consecutive games with a grand slam. The Padres have hit a grand slam in each of their 4 games against the Texas Rangers this week. On Monday, Fernando Tatis Jr. homered twice, including a controversial grand slam on a 3-0 pitch with a 7 run lead. The following day, outfielder Wil Myers hit a first-inning grand slam. On Wednesday, Manny Machado hit a walk off grand slam to win the game in the bottom of the 10th inning. And tonight, Hosmer's grand slam in the 5th inning set baseball history. Three times before in the Major League has a team hit a grand slam home runs in three consecutive games. Milwaukee was the first team to do it in 1978, followed by Detroit in 1993 and most recently the Chicago White Sox did it in 2006. The Padres are the only team to ever to do it 4 games in a row in MLB's 117 year history.

The San Diego Padres are currently 14-12 and are in second place in their division behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr. is leading the MLB in home runs with 12, as well as in runs batted in with 29.
