CHICAGO (AP) -Joe Crede and Paul Konerko each hit grand slams for the White Sox against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, the third time Chicago has had multiple grand slams in the same game.
Konerko's home run came in the third inning off Kenny Rogers, and Crede's grand slam, his second this season, came in the fifth off Zach Miner. The grand slams helped Chicago build an 11-0 lead through six innings.
The last time Chicago hit two grand slams in a game was May 19, 1996, when Darren Lewis and Robin Ventura did it at Detroit. The other time was Sept. 4, 1995, when Ventura hit two grand slams in a game at Texas.
In the third, Rogers walked Nick Swisher and Orlando Cabrera reached on an infield single. Thome walked and Konerko took an 0-1 fastball to center for a 405-foot homer, his first grand slam since Aug. 3, 2004.
Rogers didn't make it out of the fifth, getting pulled for Miner after Cabrera's double and Thome's single. Konerko struck out, Jermaine Dye hit an RBI double and A.J. Pierzynski was intentionally walked. Thome scored on a wild pitch and Miner walked Carlos Quentin to set up Crede's homer, a 393-foot shot to left.
