White Sox are fourth team in 50 years to pull off this rare combination of plays

The Chicago White Sox have produced a surprising number of exciting moments this season despite having a losing record.

On Wednesday in Houston, they added a pair of memorable plays to their highlight reel while also carving out a unique place in MLB history.

The White Sox turned a triple play and hit a grand slam during their 9-4 win against the Houston Astros. Prior to this occasion, only three other MLB teams had managed to pull of this same rare combination of plays in the same game dating back to 1969, when the league began divisional play.

MLB roundup: Padres beat Dodgers on PH, walk-off slam

Pinch hitter Hunter Renfroe hit a walk-off grand slam off Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen with two out in the bottom of the ninth Sunday afternoon to give the host San Diego Padres an 8-5 victory to avoid being swept in a three-game series at Petco Park.

Chris Taylor had put the Dodgers ahead 5-4 with a two-run homer in the top of the eighth off Padres reliever Robbie Erlin.

Dodgers pitchers had held the Padres to three hits and retired 14 straight — including seven straight by strikeouts at one point — when Eric Hosmer opened the bottom of the ninth with a single to left off Jansen, who had picked up saves in each of the first two games of the series.

Manuel Margot and Wil Myers followed with back-to-back bunt singles to the left side to load the bases with no one out. Two outs later, Renfrow belted his fifth career grand slam — and seventh homer of the season — on a cut fastball. It was the first walk-off win of the season for the Padres, and the first pinch-hit walk-off grand slam in franchise history.

MLB roundup: Astros continue power surge

Jose Altuve and Yuli Gurriel hit grand slams as the Houston Astros defeated the host Seattle Mariners 10-6 Friday night.

It was the fourth consecutive game in which Altuve has gone deep, and he has five home runs over that span.

George Springer also homered for the Astros, who extended their winning streak to seven games. The Mariners had their six-game winning streak snapped.

Tom Murphy hit a solo homer in the ninth inning to extend the Mariners’ major league record of consecutive games with a home run to start a season to 16.

I hope the Astros’ electronic equipment can survive this.
