Tigers utility man hits go-ahead grand slam, immediately tested for PEDs after game
Coincidence? Yeah, probably
The big blow in the game came from an unlikely source: utility infielder Andrew Romine. Romine clubbed a go-ahead grand slam in the fourth inning. Here's the video:

Romine went into Wednesday's game with six home runs in 390 major-league games. He hit two homers in 2014, two homers in 2015 and another two homers in 2016. Romine is now on the board with his first home run of 2017.
So, what happens when a light-hitting utility infielder goes out and swats a grand slam? He gets drug tested after the game, of course.
Romine was tested for performance-enhancing drugs Wednesday:
A coincidence?! Yeah, probably. Romine will be tested for PEDs multiple times this season like every other player. It just so happened his number was called on the day he hit a grand slam.
