Diamondbacks starting pitcher Corbin Martin reacts after giving up a home run to the Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr. during the first inning of an 11-5 loss June 25 in San Diego. Tatis hit three homers, energizing Petco Park with the most dynamic performance of his short but spectacular career, as the Padres sent the Diamondbacks to their record 24th straight road loss, extending the major league record. Before winning the following night to halt the streak, Arizona's last victory away from Chase Field came on April 25 when Madison Bumgarner threw seven no-hit innings to win in Atlanta.
