...Takeshi Yamasaki became the second oldest player to hit a grand slam on Friday. At 41 years and 6 month, Yamasaki is now the second oldest player to hit a grand slam. Yasunori Oshima holds the record at 43 years and 6 months.
Said Marty Brown of Yamasaki's performance, "Without that home run, we lose. I know he must be feeling frustrated right now, and [Andy] Phillips and [Norihiro] Nakamura have been hitting well too. But without the DH, this is the way he'll be used for a while."
