Dickerson’s fifth-deck shot came 20 years to the day after Mark McGwire became the first player to send a dinger to the fifth deck in Toronto.
He is one of very few players to hit a five-decker, and one of only three to hit one to right field. The home run also extended the Padres’ 23-game dinger streak,and as it stands, they are four games out of the MLB record.
