The Padres’ push to extend their home run streak to a National League-record 26 games took a serious hit two batters into Friday’s game. Of greater concern in a 6-0 loss to the Reds, naturally, is the hit that Alex Dickerson took while tracking Zack Cozart’s first-inning triple into the left-center alley, the 26-year-old Poway native upended by a sliding Travis Jankowski on a drive that eluded both outfielders.

Dickerson walked off the field under his own power with a right hip contusion – but only after trainers tended to him for several minutes on the Petco Park warning track.
