Brandon Crawford becomes first SS with postseason grand slam
For the first time in baseball history, a shortstop has a postseason grand slam. It was Brandon Crawford of the Giants and it happened Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.
The National League wild card game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants featured very little offense through three innings. In the top of the fourth, though, the Giants got to Edinson Volquez in a big way. After hits from Pablo Sandoval and Hunter Pence, Brandon Belt walked to load the bases. And then Brandon Crawford happened.
It was also Crawford's first career postseason home run and he had previously hit two grand slams in a regular season game.
