The San Diego Padres lost 6-0 to the Cincinnati Reds on Friday, marking the end of a National League record-tying streak of 25 consecutive games with at least one home run as a team, per ESPN Stats & Info.

The Padres eked out just five singles and a double in Friday’s ugly home loss, allowing Reds starter Brandon Finnegan (six innings) to improve his record to 6-8 and ERA to 4.68.

Padres starter Edwin Jackson (1-2) took the loss, giving up six runs (all earned) on 10 hits and two walks over five innings.

The team needed just two more games to tie the all-time record of 27 straight games with a home run, set by a 2002 Texas Rangers squad that featured sluggers Alex Rodriguez (57 homers), Rafael Palmeiro (43) and Ivan Rodriguez (19 in 104 games).

The Rangers still only won 72 games that year, which is about where the Padres (44-59) seem to be headed.

Although the recent power surge has led to some long-awaited excitement regarding the team’s young batters, San Diego still only went 11-14 during the streak, largely due to poor pitching.

Still, the team has to be thrilled to finally possess some building blocks on the offensive side, with 25-year-old first baseman Wil Myers the most promising of the bunch.
