After four scoreless innings of play Friday night the Los Angeles Dodgers’ streak of 35 consecutive innings without a run tied for most in Los Angeles franchise history. It trailed only droughts of 41 innings in 1908 and 36 innings in 1907.

While Justin Turner and Andre Ethier will get credit for snapping the streak as Turner hit a leadoff single, took second base on Will Venable’s error, and scored on Andre Ethier’s RBI double, Kiké Hernandez may deserve some credit as well.

The Dodgers’ utility man was spotted in the dugout carrying around a banana when the Dodgers at last put a run on the scoreboard and again in the eighth inning when Joc Pederson hit the go-ahead home run. Hernandez dubbed the fruit a “rally banana” on his Instagram account after the Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres:

Plain and simple; RALLY BANANA!!! ????????

Hernandez also tweeted to Pederson to let him know the secret behind the rookie center fielder’s success and it drew a response from Turner:

Whereas the 2014 Dodgers had a bubble machine and dance celebrations in the dugout, this year’s club has a banana. A Rally Banana. Even if only for one night.
