Yankees Make Major League History With 3 Grand Slams

New York Yankees dugout celebrates the 3rd of 3 grand slams against the Oakland A's (Getty Images)

The Yankees were trailing the Oakland A’s 7 to 2 in the bottom of the fifth when 2nd baseman Robinson Cano connected on the first of three Yankees’ grand slams.  Catcher Russell Martin followed with another one in the bottom of the 6th.  Center fielder Curtis Granderson added a third in the bottom of the 8th.  The Yankees became the first team in major league history to hit three grand slams in one game in a 22 to 9 rout of the A’s.

For good measure Martin and Andruw Jones hit solo homers.  The Yankees finished with 21 hits for the game. 

The A’s gave the Yankees plenty of chances to hit additional grand slams.  Aided by 13 walks, the Yankees came to the plate 16 times with the bases loaded.  Derek Jeter himself came to the plate four times with the bases full. 

Unfortunately for a lot of Yankees’ fans they never got to see it happen.  Many of them went home after 3 innings with the Yankees trailing 7 to 1 after sitting thru a nearly 90-minute rain delay. 

The 22 runs tied a Yankees record for most runs in a game.
