2 HRs, 2 2Bs, 10 RBIs...would normally think he was playing slow pitch softball with a state line like that.

And he has a chance for 13 with 2 on and 2 out in the 8th. I want to see history.

The White Sox team RBI record is 8, by the way. Jim Spencer tied it in 1977 and came out in the sixth inning. Robin Ventura tied it in a game where he didn't have any going into the eighth inning in a game in Texas.

Fernando Tatis had 8 RBI in an inning in a game for the Cardinals in 1999, and he finished the night with 8.

Who holds the record, Mark Whiten with 13?

What was remarkable was that he hit two grand slams in one inning, one from each side of the plate. Even more remarkable... he hit them off the same pitcher!

It set an Angels' record. You can hear the radio calls in yesterday's Gameday Audio Rewind:

I believe it starts around 25:00.

Same pitcher, really? Why did he switch sides of the plate? Or was the pitcher throwing with his other hand by then? :D:

Well, when you hit a grand slam and then get to bat again in the same inning and the bases are loaded again, why not switch sides, not like the pitcher in question was going to get you out anyway...

Chan Ho Park was the pitcher. Can't confirm that he hit from both sides of the plate from this box score but it's what I have always heard and recall hearing it at the time he did it.

Fernando Tatis was not a switch hitter - he batted, exclusively, RH.

I'm sure Garret Anderson has had more RBIs than that in games against the Sox.

Oh wait, I'm thinking of Robb Quinlan.

20% of his RBIs for the season came in this game.

Mark Whiten and Jim Bottomley with 12.

That 4 HR game by Whiten included another AB when he already had his 4. He never swung the bat. Afterwards even he couldn't believe he didn't just rear back and take massive cut after cut trying to do what no one has ever done before - hit a 5th HR in the same game...
