Posey wasted no time hitting his fourth career grand slam, and second of 2015. Just five days after his first, on June 24th, Posey did it again, this time victimizing San Diego Padres’ starter Ian Kennedy.

  • In the friendly confines of AT&T Park this time around, Posey turned a one-run game into a five-run game by doing what he does best: coming through in the clutch. Again on a 2-2 count, Kennedy threw a slow two-seam fastball over the middle of the plate, and Posey took it deep. Oddly enough, it was only the Giants’ second hit of the ballgame.

    With that blast off Kennedy, Posey became the fourth player in baseball to hit two grand slams in 2015 (joining Kyle Seager, Todd Frazier, and Stephen Vogt, at the time), but none of those three players had a quicker turnaround than Posey’s five days. In fact, all three of those guys had hit both of their grand slams before Posey even hit his first.

    All in all, 14 players so far have hit a pair of grand slams. Still none have done so in such rapid succession.
