The San Diego Padres are on a historic hitting run, and have set an MLB record with their fifth consecutive game grand slam! Jake Cronenworth hit the fifth grand slam with bases loaded in Saturday’s win over the Houston Astros. The Padres broke the major league record earlier in the week when Eric Hosmer hit a grand slam, making the club the first ever to hit a grand slam in four straight games. According to MLB Stats, Cronenworth is the third player with a three-homer game this season and the first Padre ever to do it since June 2019.
