Charlie Blackmon dismantled the San Diego Padres this weekend, with the series finale proving to be historic in multiple ways.

On Sunday, the Colorado Rockies outfielder set the all-time record for hits in a four-game series after notching his 15th base knock of the set during the sixth inning, according to Matt Kelly of MLB.com.

Blackmon is one of three players in the modern era with at least 15 hits in a series of any length, according to ESPN Stats & Info. The three-time All-Star joined a list occupied by Tony Oliva (1967) and Irv Hall (1945).

The 32-year-old had a shot to become the first player since Milt Stock in 1925 to record four straight four-hit games but ultimately fell short with three hits in the finale.

Here are Blackmon's at-bats against the Padres this series in chronological order:

The series between the division rivals was an absolute slugfest for both sides. With 92 runs scored combined - and the Rockies responsible for 48 of them - the two clubs set the record for the highest-scoring four-game series in baseball history.

Here's the aggregate box score for the series, which wound up being split 2-2 following a wild ninth-inning comeback from the Padres:

Team Runs Hits Errors
Padres 44 62 3
Rockies 48 69 4

The series included an inside-the-park home run and a grand slam from Ian Desmond, as well as multiple ejections, headlined by Manny Machado going ballistic on home-plate umpire Bill Welke during Saturday's game.
