The hits keep comin’

With an 8-4 win over the Diamondbacks last night, the Padres have tied a club record by scoring seven or more runs in five consecutive games, previously done by the 1979 and 1996 clubs. Thanks to MLB.com’s Tom Singer for noting the accomplishment.

In addition, Jason Bartlett went 2-for-5 with two RBI last night and now has an RBI in eight consecutive games. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, he is one shy of tying the franchise record, set by Sixto Lezcano in 1982 and Steve Finley in 1996.  Lezcano recorded an RBI in nine straight games from April 16-27. Two Padres players have had at least one RBI in eight straight games: Carmelo Martinez (June 21-28) and Tony Gwynn (May 25-June 3), both during the 1984 season.
