Padres Lose Dickerson, Home Run Streak in Shutout to the Reds

The Padres home run streak began after a 3-0 shutout in Cincinnati.

The Padres home run streaks ends after being shutout by Cincinnati.

After tying a National League record with the 1998 Atlanta Braves for most consecutive games with a home run, the Padres streak is over at 25-games.

Reds starter Brandon Finnegan shutout the Padres on just four hits over six-innings on his way to the win.

Third baseman Eugenio Suarez gave him all the offense he needed. Suarez had a two-run double in the first inning that extended the Reds lead to 4-0 and added a two-run single in the fifth to tie a career mark of four RBI.

The biggest hit of the night didn’t come off Suarez’s bat, but in the Padres outfield.

With one-out in the top of the first, Padres left fielder Alex Dickerson and center fielder Travis Jankowski collided on a shot to left center by Zack Cozart. Jankowski slid and Dickerson flew over him landing hard on his right hip.

The Poway native, who set a franchise rookie record homering in four-straight games leading up to tonight, had to leave the game with a right hip contusion.

Padres lost 6-0. It’s the 12th time they’ve been shutout this season, an MLB high.

Christian Friedrich takes the hill for the Padres Saturday against Anthony DeSclafani. First pitch is scheduled for 5:40 p.m. at Petco Park.
