The Padres avoided a sweep in Toronto with an 8-4 victory in Wednesday’s getaway game.
Despite the win, San Diego finished its 10-game road trip a disappointing 3-7.
San Diego did receive homers from Adam Rosales, Brett Wallace and Alex Dickerson Wednesday.
The biggest storyline for this team (other than trade rumors) is that somehow the offense has homered at least once in a franchise-record 25 consecutive games.
The Padres are just two more games away from tying the MLB record, and can break the mark this weekend when the Reds come to town.
Here’s some interesting numbers during the streak:
- The Padres are 11-14 during their last 25 contests.
- The ball club is 6-4 against division rivals.
- San Diego has hit 42 total home runs during this hot streak.
- Second baseman Ryan Schimpf has the most homers (9) over this stretch.
- Schimpf is followed by Matt Kemp (7), Yangervis Solarte (6), former Padre Melvin Upton (5 – including a walk-off vs the Yankees), Alex Dickerson (5 - including 4 in a row!), All-Star Wil Myers (3), Brett Wallace (2), Derek Norris (2), Adam Rosales (2) and catcher Christian Bethancourt with one.
- Schimpf, Upton and Kemp have each homered twice in a game during the streak.
San Diego hosts Cincinnati to kick off a six-game homestand Friday evening at 7:40 p.m.
Edwin Jackson is slated to start against Reds pitcher Brandon Finnegan.
