Posey and Bumgarner became the first battery to hit grand slams in the same game, driving in every run of an 8-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. [...]
Players and coaches credited Posey for stirring a slumping group with his fifth-inning slam. The catcher was more impressed by Bumgarner, who also hit a grand slam April 11.
“You’re just kind of shaking your head,” he said. “I was asking Rags (pitching coach Dave Righetti) how many pitchers have hit two in one season.”
The answer is two, in the entire history of major league baseball. Bumgarner joined Tony Cloninger, who hit two in one game against the Giants in 1966. Bumgarner joined Posey in giving the Giants two grand slams in the same game for just the third time in their San Francisco era.
