 Never in the history of MLB has battery-mates smack grand slams until Sunday afternoon in AT&T ballpark in San Francisco.  Both Giants catcher Buster Posey and Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner displayed post-Fourth of July fireworks in back-to-back innings giving the San Francisco Giants an 8-4 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Posey swung for the fences in the fifth inning with the Giants trailing 1-0 and Bumgarner slammed came in the sixth inning.  Madison Bumgarner became the first pitcher in 48 years to hit two grand in a single season; the other pitcher was  Tony Cloninger who did it back in 1966. Here's a look Bumgarner's grand slam: mlb.com
It was the third home run for the all-star pitcher this season.  After the game Bumgarner announced that he will not pitch in Tuesday night's summer classic giving up his spot to Tim Hudson.  If the National League team needs a substitute for the home run derby my money is on Madison Bumgarner!
