To this point Sunday, there have been lots of crooked numbers. The Indians and Blue Jays each had six-run innings against each other while the Twins have also posted a seven-run inning. And in each of the aforementioned games, we saw a player hit his first career grand slam.

Take it away first, Devon Travis:

Travis, a rookie, now has seven homers and 23 RBI in 88 at-bats this season. The Blue Jays' pitching staff, however, couldn't hold the lead in a 10-7 loss.

Anyway, Trevor Plouffe later did the same thing:

The Twins are now poised to top .500 after an initially dreadful start to the season.
