It took exactly 13 days for all of Major League Baseball to combine to whack ten grand slams. Here they are.
We’re listing these grand slams along with the inning and score, so if you want to be completely unaware of all scores and four-run slammers before watching games from the first weeks of the 2017 season, avoid this post. Otherwise, proceed!
The First 10 Grand Slams of the 2017 MLB Season
1. Joc Pederson Slams First Grand of the Year (4/3/17)
With the score tied at one and two outs in the third inning, Pederson stepped in against the Padres’ Jhoulys Chacin. Boom.
2. Francisco Lindor Says Goodbye (4/5/17)
In the top of the 9th with Cleveland down 5-6 against Texas, Lindor says goodbye to the ball and hello to four RBIs.
3. Kendrys Morales Rips a Monster Slam (4/6/17)
With the score tied at goose eggs in the 3rd, Kendrys Morales blasts off.
4. Brandon Belt Belts a Brandon (4/7/17)
That’s the new word for grand slam. This term (#brandon) was coined on April 7 in San Diego, as the score flipped from 1-4 to 5-4 with one mighty swing.
5. Nomar Mazara’s Center Field Bomb (4/7/17)
With Texas up 0-4 in bottom of the 2nd inning, Mazara doubled their score with this grand slam as the Rangers raged with the sticks in search of their first win of the 2017 MLB season.
6. Andrew Romine Goes Grand (4/12/17)
Just like that, Detroit goes from down 1-3 to up 5-3. That’s the beauty of the grand slam.
7. Maikel Franco’s Stellar Grand Slam (4/12/17)
Down 5-0 with two outs in the bottom of the 6th against the Mets, Maikel Franco gives the Phillies a teriffic surge to pull within one.

Bottom of the first against the Mets, Ozuna crushes a 2-1 pitch with two outs and the bases loaded to create an early lead for the Marlins.
9. Lonnie Chisenhall Swats a Big Fly (4/14/17)
Bottom of the ninth, down by five… it’s the stuff dreams are made of. Almost.
10. Logan Morrison Takes It Deep (4/14/17)
Up 2-0 in the third inning, Tampa Bay’s Logan Morrison adds four more with a no-doubt Grand Slam off Rick Porcello of the Boston Red Sox.
