Win the game, end an historic streak, but keep the most important streak going, that was the Padres night on the diamond.
The San Diego Padres beat the Houston Astros 4 to 3 Friday night at Petco Park.
With the win the Padres pushed their winning streak to 5 games, but their streak of grand slams came to an end at 4 games. The previous 4 games with a grand slam were an all-time Major League Baseball record, even though MLB records are nice, winning games is what matters the most.
With the win the Padres improved their record to 16-12, a mark that has the team in the playoff mix almost halfway through the Covid-19 shortened 60 game MLB season.
