The Milwaukee Brewers have had a rough second half.
Since the All-Star break, they’ve won just four out of their first 12 games and are in bad shape against the Nationals this afternoon (down 7-0 in the third inning with Max Scherzer on the mound).
But were not here today to tell you about the hole itself, but rather how that hole was created – because it’s spectacular. In the bottom of the third inning earlier today, the Washington Nationals hit Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back home runs.
That’s the first time the team has hit four straight homers in Nationals history.
You can see the homers below:

Clearly, the mound visit wasn’t very helpful:
And if that wasn’t enough, after Daniel Murphy broke the streak with a fly out to center field, Antony Rendon hit another homer immediately after.
So if you’re keeping track at home, that’s four-straight homers, an out, and then a fifth homer in the inning. And because Harper hit one in the first, that’s six homers in the first three innings alone.
