Tat's was part of a four-game streak in August, when the San Diego Padres won four grand slams and, more importantly, was at each base position over the four. When Tats swung at a 3–0 pitch in the eighth inning, he ignited a controversy, prompting the Texas Rangers to drop an opposite-field grand slam.
