The San Diego Padres and Colorado Rickies put up a combined 92 runs, which set a modern record for a four-game series. That record had stood for nearly 100 years with the Philadelphia Phillies and Brooklyn Dodgers scoring 88 runs in May 1929.

The teams reached double-digit runs five times, and the lowest score for a team in any game was six — 1.25 runs above the league average. Since all but one of the runs were earned, the series raised the Padres’ team ERA from 4.23 to 4.65, while the Rockies’ ballooned from 4.97 to 5.29.

Pete Alonso is six home runs away from breaking Mets’ rookie record

Pete Alonso is six home runs away from breaking Mets’ rookie record Thousands of fans craned their chins toward the sky to watch Pete Alonso’s 21st homer of the year fly among the clouds before bouncing off the left-field wall. In the meantime the Mets rookie, surprisingly speedy for clocking in at 245 pounds, slid into third base before the tag. A brief crew-chief review revealed the moonshot smacked the wall above the orange painted home-run line, which granted Alonso his wackiest trip around the bases for a most dramatic home run. He jogged home, business as usual, and high-fived close friend and teammate Dominic Smith. The Mets buoyantly celebrated the final run scored of their 5-3 win over the Rockies on Saturday night at Citi Field.

This series had just about everything with extra innings, lots of home runs and even a puddle delay. Here’s a brief highlight of what went down at Mile High.

Friday’s wild comeback for the Padres

Thursday’s game was your standard 9-6 slugfest, but things really kicked into high gear on Friday for what may have been the wildest game of the year.

The Rockies jumped out to a commanding 11-4 lead by the seventh inning, thanks in part to an inside-the-park homer from Ian Desmond, who came off the bench in a double switch. While that would seem like an insurmountable lead Colorado, nothing is quite safe in Coors Field.

Six of the first seven Padres got hits to start the ninth, including Hunter Renfroe, who hit his second of three home runs on the night. By the end of the frame, the Padres scored six to tie the game and effectively send it into extras.

After two straight quiet innings, the Padres roared back with five more in the ninth, making them the first team since the 1976 Cleveland Indians to score 5+ runs in the 9th inning or later of a game. The Rockies scratched back for one more in the bottom of the 12th on Charlie Blackmon’s leadoff homer, but 12 runs would not be enough for the win.

And as if one comeback weren’t enough, the Padres stormed back from down 13-8 in Sunday’s game to score four in the ninth and win by one.

Charlie Blackmon is on fire

Blackmon picked up four hits in Friday’s win and hardly slowed down. He added four more hits in the next two games, leaving him one shy of the major league record.

Still, his three-hit day Sunday gave him 15 knocks on the series, which set the major league record for hits in a four-game set. It’s also the second time this season that he’s hit four homers in as many days.

Before the series, Blackmon was already hitting .305/.361/.582, but he’s making his case to make a third straight All-Star Game easy now that he’s up to a clean .336/.385/.652.

Nationals hit 4 straight homers in 8th to stun Padres 5-2

Nationals hit 4 straight homers in 8th to stun Padres 5-2 Howie Kendrick, Trea Turner, Adam Eaton and Anthony Rendon hit consecutive home runs off Craig Stammen with one out in the eighth inning and Stephen Strasburg beat his hometown team again as the Washington Nationals defeated the San Diego Padres 5-2. The Nationals became the first team in major league history to accomplish the feat twice, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The other time was July 27, 2017, against Milwaukee. With the score tied at 1, Kendrick was pinch-hitting for Strasburg (7-3) when he started the homer parade with a shot to left, his 11th.

Blackmon wasn’t the only outfielder solidifying his resume for the Midseason Classic, as Renfroe followed up his three-homer Friday with a two-homer Sunday. Although he doesn't even qualify for the batting title yet with just 223 plate appearances, Renfroe is tied for second in baseball with 23 home runs.

The strangest delay to a game yet

After all the madness of the first three games, there were quite a few signs that baseball wasn’t meant to play in such a high-scoring environment. Chiefly among them Coors Field seemingly rebelling, begging this madness to stop.

Shortly before Sunday’s game, a water main broke, which caused a massive puddle to form in foul territory along the right field line. Rockies players were pulled off the field until the game could resume 15 minutes after the anticipated start time.

Coors Field must have known more chaos was about to ensue because the teams scored 17 runs through two and a half innings.
