This day in baseball: Double grand salami

Orioles first baseman Jim Gentile hit two grand slams in a game against the Twins on May 9, 1961, becoming only the fourth player in Major League history to do so.  While he wasn’t the first to accomplish the feat, he was the first to do so in consecutive at-bats.  The Orioles won the game 13-5.
