The Washington Nationals hit four consecutive home runs for the first time in franchise history and hit five in six at bats on Thursday. 

In the third inning of a game against the Milwaukee Brewers, Brian Goodwin hit a two-run home run to put the Nats up 4-0.

Wilmer Difo followed that up with a solo shot.

Bryce Harper, always a fan of the spotlight, came up next and didn't disappoint—he muscled a pitch in the dirt and managed to hit it over the left-center fence.

That prompted Brewers pitching coach Derek Johnson to make a comically futile visit to pitcher Michael Blazek.

After the visit, Ryan Zimmerman went deep again for Washington, this time to left-center.

Daniel Murphy broke the streak (booooooo) by flying out to center before Anthony Rendon got the party started again by hitting one out to left. 

Here's a tidbit that puts the Nats' five-homer inning in perspective.

The outburst came the day after the Brewers' Twitter did a bit of trolling.

That certainly backfired. 

The five homers in one inning tie a major league record, and it's the first time a team has hit four straight home runs since the Diamondbacks did so on Aug. 11, 2010. Their opponent that day? The Milwaukee Brewers.
