Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

GIFs and PBP of the momentous occasion, by yours truly.

Top of the 6th, one out. Cashner goes yard off Josh Collmenter to make it a 9-3 Padres lead.

He tries to remain calm as he rounds the bases, but you just KNOW he's bursting with joy inside.

He goes to greet the first teammate he sees, but Chris Denorfia casually walks past him toward the on-deck circle without acknowledging his apparent excitement.

He is met by the same reaction in the dugout, so he pulls some classic air-fives.

Finally, as Mark Kotsay grabs our hero around the waist, the rest of the team surrounds him in a sea of high fives, congratulations, and pats on his various body parts.

Jedd Gyorko applies the mother of all butt slaps. Then Cashner attempts to replace his helmet in his cubby, but it jumps back out probably because it's just as excited as its owner. More high fives given by a few stragglers.
