The San Diego Padres have made the most of another disappointing season by tying the National League record with a home run in 25 consecutive games.

With three home runs against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Padres tied the NL record held by the Atlanta Braves.

It is only two off the MLB record, which belongs to the 2002 Texas Rangers.

In the 25 game streak, stretching back to June 28, the Padres have compiled an 11-14 record.

One of the shots came from rookie outfielder Alex Dickerson, who has now hit a homer in four straight games.

The streak has set a Padre rookie record.

Dickerson took Melvin Upton Jr.’s spot in left, and has done it well, hitting .288 with 6 homers in 31 games.

They will look to continue the hot hitting at home against the Cincinnati Reds on July 29.
