This guy's good: D-backs' Martinez hits grand slam vs. Cardinals”

By now, if you're an Arizona Diamondback fan, you're doing handstands about the recent acquisition of J.D. Martinez from the sinking Detroit Tigers.

However, that one hit was a home run with the bases loaded, making him just the fourth player in MLB history to hit a grand slam in both leagues in the same season, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).

The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to this evening's game that they have recalled right-handed pitcher Luke Weaver from Memphis (AAA) and that the team had optioned right-handed pitcher Mike Mayers to the triple-A club following last night's game. The lead held as the D-backs won 4-0 to start their road series. Since joining the Diamondbacks, Martinez now has four homers and 11 RBI in six games, one of which was merely a pinch-hitting appearance. He returned as a pinch-hitter four days later before on Monday getting the monkey off his bat with the bomb against the Atlanta Braves.
