The Nationals just hit four straight home runs.
It’s only happened nine times in MLB history.
Here’s the video:
We're the only team in @MLB history to hit back-to-back-to-back-to-back HRs twice.

Among the nine teams who’ve conceded it? Twice it was the Padres.
With the last one being the forever best.

So on this sleepy, everyday afternoon at the ballpark, out of nowhere:
We got four straight home runs. Four straight.
Maybe the most spectacular, all-American thing there is.
Brats. Burgers. Joey Chestnut downing 70 hot dogs in ten minutes.
And this team from our nation’s capital, hitting four straight home runs.
