Watch Justin Upton hit a go-ahead grand slam

New, 1 comment

And pimp it a little bit too.

For seven innings, the Detroit Tigers offense couldn’t get anything going against Baltimore Orioles starter Kevin Gausman. That all changed in the eighth inning. The Tigers put a pair of runners on, moved them over with a swinging bunt, and then Jim Adduci loaded the bases with a walk.

Then, Justin Upton happened.

Upton’s seventh career grand slam (and third of the year!) gave the Tigers a 5-2 lead in the top of the eighth, and put Justin Verlander in line for his seventh win of the year.
