Morales got the six-inning scoring started with a two-run shot off Roy Oswalt. He later came to bat with the bases loaded against Robbie Ross and parked another. Yes, that's two home runs in the same inning, including a grand slam. That's also six RBI in the inning. On top of that, Morales -- a switch-hitter -- hit one homer from each side of the plate.
Here's the historical fallout:
• Morales becomes the third player in major-league history to homer from both sides of the plate in the same inning, joining Carlos Baerga and the immortal Mark Bellhorn (via ESPN Stats and Info).
