No team has ever hit more consecutive solo home runs than this year’s San Francisco Giants.
With two outs and the bases empty, third baseman Pablo Sandoval dropped a Ricky Nolasco fastball in the seats.
It was the 20th time in a row a Giants home run came with no one base.
The last time a Giant hit a long ball to drive in someone besides himself was on July 6 against the San Diego Padres.
In the fourth, Nate Schierholtz hit a two-out homer with Sandoval on second.
It was also Schierholtz who started this streak.
He led off the tenth inning of that same game with a walk-off shot.
The previous record of 19 had been set by the Philadelphia Phillies in 1914.
