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 Washington Nationals turned a triple play in Friday's 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants, marking the first time the franchise has done so since moving from Montreal to Washington in 2005, per ESPN Stats & Info.

The Montreal Expos last had one on September 9, 2002, leaving the franchise with a drought that lasted nearly 14 years.

Friday's triple play was a great way to start, as it erased a bases-loaded, no-out rally in the eighth inning of a three-run game against a team the Nationals could very well end up fighting for playoff position.

It was also unique for the way it was turned, with first baseman Ryan Zimmerman catching a low line drive and stepping on the bag before firing over to third baseman Anthony Rendon for the first 3-3-5 triple play in MLB history, per MLB on Twitter.

Texas Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor hit his 20th and 21st home runs of his year in Friday's 8-3 win over the Kansas City Royals, reaching the 20-homer barrier for the first time in his three MLB seasons.

He had just nine homers in 386 at-bats as a rookie in 2014 but improved to 16 (in 426 at-bats) last season, with 12 of those coming after the All-Star break.

The 22-year-old has built on last year's strong finish for a true breakout campaign in 2016, and he is on pace for 33 home runs, 84 RBI and 100 runs in 608 at-bats.

Also boasting a .282 batting average and .508 slugging percentage, Odor's only weakness has been his inability to draw walks, with just nine in 96 games limiting his on-base percentage to .301.

Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler recently hit his eighth home run during the month of July, making this the first month in MLB history in which three rookies recorded eight or more homers, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN.com).

The 23-year-old lefty slugger did the honors during Thursday's 6-2 home win over the Baltimore Orioles, smacking a solo shot to right field in the sixth inning off Orioles reliever Odrisamer Despaigne to tie the contest at two apiece.

Kepler then played a role in a four-run rally the next inning, with his RBI single bringing home Twins first baseman Joe Mauer to extend the lead to 4-2.

Kepler would later come around to score on a triple by outfielder Eddie Rosario, extending Minnesota's advantage to 6-2, which ended up being the final score.

Texas Rangers outfielder Ian Desmond hit his 20th home run of the season during Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Oakland Athletics, becoming just the fourth player in major league history to record 20-homer campaigns as both a primary shortstop and center fielder, per MLB Stat of the Day (h/t MLB.com's Ryan Posner).

Mostly a shortstop while playing for the Washington Nationals from 2009 to 2015, the 30-year-old Desmond has made a seamless transition to the outfield in his first season with the Rangers, making 74 starts in center field and 27 starts in left field (101 total) through the team's first 103 games.

Although he's committed five errors in center and three more in left, Desmond has more than made up for the miscues with his impressive range and even more impressive batting.

His current batting average (.307), on-base percentage (.359) and slugging percentage (.525) would all represent career-best marks, and he's also on pace for 31 homers, 98 RBI and 115 runs—all of which would be career highs.

Miami Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki hit a pinch-hit double in the seventh inning of Thursday's 5-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, giving him 2,998 career hits to move within just two of the 3,000-hit barrier, per ESPN Stats & Info.

With the Marlins trailing 5-3 and catcher J.T. Realmuto on first base with one out, Suzuki was brought in to replace relief pitcher Mike Dunn, who had earlier taken over for a struggling Jose Fernandez.

Suzuki roped a ground-ball double to right field on the second pitch he saw from Cardinals reliever Jonathan Broxton, but right fielder Stephen Piscotty was able to cut the ball off before it reached the wall, holding Realmuto at third base and Suzuki at second.

Light-hitting Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria then grounded out to bring Realmuto home, but Suzuki (who represented the tying run) was stranded at third after infielder Chris Johnson was called out on strikes.

One day after losing his streak of 52 consecutive successful save opportunities, New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia shockingly blew another save in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Familia was charged with a loss in addition to the blown save in both games, first turning a 4-3 lead into a 5-4 loss Wednesday night against the St. Louis Cardinals, and then turning a 1-0 advantage into a 2-1 deficit Thursday afternoon against Colorado.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Familia owns the third-longest streak since saves became an official stat in 1969, trailing only Eric Gagne (84) and Tom Gordon (54), with Jose Valverde (51) just a tick behind.

Arguably the most dominant closer in MLB history, albeit for a rather short period, Gagne had a streak that lasted from 2002 to 2004, helping him earn the National League Cy Young Award in 2003, following a fourth-place finish the previous year.

The San Diego Padres tied a franchise record during Wednesday's 8-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, hitting at least one home run as a team in a 25th consecutive game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Infielder Adam Rosales did the honors with a two-run shot off of Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey in the top of the third inning, and was later joined by first baseman Brett Wallace (fifth inning) and outfielder Alex Dickerson (eighth inning), both of whom hit solo home runs that provided insurance.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, 10 different Padres have hit home runs during the 25-game stretch, including outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. (five), who was traded to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Upton made his first start for Toronto on Wednesday, recording a single and a run scored in four at-bats.

Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jay Bruce tied a franchise record during the seventh inning of Wednesday's 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants, hitting a home run in a fifth consecutive game, per Sportsnet Stats.

Stepping up to the plate with no outs and nobody on base, Bruce got a first-pitch fastball from Giants ace Madison Bumgarner and lined it over the right field fence at At&T Park.

Bumgarner then retired the final six batters he faced, but his eight-inning, two-run effort wasn't quite enough, as Reds starter Dan Straily limited the Giants to just one run over 7.2 innings.

Giants outfielder Angel Pagan singled off Reds closer Tony Cingrani to open the bottom of the ninth, but the 27-year-old lefty then retired San Francisco's 3-4-5 hitters in order to close out the game.

When Toronto Blue Jays designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion took Seattle Mariners pitcher Wade Miley deep in the fourth inning of Sunday's series finale, he surpassed Vernon Wells for third place on the all-time franchise leaderboard for home runs, per ESPN Stats & Info.

With Wells now in the rear-view mirror, Encarnacion (224 home runs) only trails teammate Jose Bautista (255) and Carlos Delgado (336) for the most home runs in Blue Jays history.

Encarnacion and Bautista are both currently playing on the final year of their respective contracts, which could wind up concluding the career of one of the two in Toronto.

Neither of the two is necessarily headed out of town, but that will likely be decided in the offseason. However, the two have had vastly different contract seasons.
