The San Diego Padres have made history with their gland slam streak.

On Thursday night, Eric Hosmer hit a grand slam in the fifth inning against the Texas Rangers, making the Padres the first team in MLB’s 125-year history to hit a slam in four straight games.

The Padres’ grand slam streak started with Fernando Tatis Jr.’s controversial homer on Monday when he blasted a 3-0 pitch while his team leads by seven runs.

Tatis’ grand slam angered the Rangers when he violated the “unwritten rules” of baseball and he eventually apologized for hitting the homer.

The Padres have since gone on to hit a grand slam against the Rangers in every game since the Tatis Jr. altercation.
