What a day in baseball Record-setting se
Saturday was a grand day for baseball.Not only was there the first no-hitter of the 2017 season, but the day saw seven players hit grand slams including Angels slugger Albert Scott Schebler Jersey Pujols, who launched a fourth-inning grand slam against the Twins for the 600th home run of his career.The seven grand slams broke the MLB record for the most in one day. Coupled with the no-hitter to sed by Miami's Edinson Volquez, it was the first time in MLB history there five grand slams hit in a single day. Pujols then had the sixth before Seattle's Mike Zunino hit the seventh of the day with a fifth-inning blast against the Rays.Matt Adams, Ian Desmond, Kyle Schwarber, Travis Shaw and Chris Taylor hit the first give grand slams ofthe day.Crazier still, four of those grand slams gave teams leads after they were down by at least a run, and two of them were the difference in their games. Schwarber hit his with the Cubs down two in the seventh and Taylor hit his to give the Dodgers the 10-8 lead in the ninth against the Brewers.Taylor didn't even mean to go deep, he was just trying to keep the Dodgers rally alive."Thats the funny thing,"he toldthe Los Angeles Times. "Sometimes your best swing is your two-strike swing, because you dont try to get Jay Bruce Jersey too big or do too much."Taylor's grand slam gave Kenley Jansen the chance at a save and extend his MLB record of most strikeouts without a walk to begin a season. He now had 40 in 23 innings and zero base on balls.As for Schwarber, his home run came off a starter who the Cubs seemingly couldn't get to all game Cincinnati Reds Cool Base Custom White Jersey long. With Chicago down 3-1 in the seventh inning, the former Indiana Hoosier gave the Cubs a 5-3 lead they would never relinquish."It was an exciting moment, a big moment to put us ahead in that spot,"he said after the game."And to be able to hold those guys off and come out with a win was big."Stud of the NightIt was just a ho-hum day for Oakland's Ryon Healy Saturday. The A's first baseman didn't hit a grand slam like so many others were doing. He just had to go 4-4 with two home runs to make up the difference. He drove in three runs and scored two himself just for good measure in the 10-4 win over the Nationals.Dud of the NightSpeaking of home runs, Jason Grilli really aided in MLB's effort to light up scoreboards Saturday. The 40-year-old Blue Jays reliever gave up not one, not two, not three, but four home runs in the eighth Cincinnati Reds Collection Custom White Jersey inning of Saturday's 7-0 lo s to the Yankees and he didn't even get through the inning. He was yanked after 2/3 of an inning as his ERA ballooned to 8.15.HighlightWhile Adams' grand slam may not have been a game winner, his second homer of the night was, and he went opposite field in the 12th inning to lift the Braves to a 6-5 win over the Reds.#BigCity with a BIG game-winning homer. MLB (@MLB) June 4, 2017What's Next Yankees (32-21) at Blue Jays (27-29), 1:07 p.m. ET:This is the best pitching match-up of the day bar-none. Luis Severino (4-2, 2.93 ERA) Eugenio Suarez Jersey againstMarcus Stroman (3-2, 3.28). The radar guns will be lighting up all day long and the two pitchers will have to also deal with the wind tunnel that is Rogers Centre.
