The Washington Nationals made a massive bit of history on Sunday afternoon, and in doing so, they opened up their game against the San Diego Padres in the process. With the score at 1-1 in the eighth, Howie Kendrick stepped up to the plate and bombed a pitch over the wall to hand them the lead.
Trea Turner, Adam Eaton, and Anthony Rendon then would each consecutively also hit a home run, making it four men in a row and putting them up 5-1 in a game in which they ultimately took 5-2. By doing so, the Nationals became the first team in history to have this feat occur twice. The other time it happened was in July of 2017 against the Milwaukee Brewers. They remain eight games back in the NL East, however.
