For the 15th time in NPB history, two players from opposing sides each hit grand slams in the same game last night:

Francisco Caraballo (ORI) hit a grand slam in the 4th to give the Buffaloes a 4-0 lead.  In the bottom of the 5th, with the Buffaloes now holding a 5-0 lead, Tadahito Iguchi (LOT) nailed a grand slam to bring the Marines to within 1 run of tying the game.

The last time two players from opposing teams hit grand slams in one game was on 6/14/2009 (Aaron Guiel for the Yakult Swallows in the 5th and Ikki for the Orix Buffaloes in the 7th).
