Hitoshi Tamura (SOF) knocked out a grand slam in his first at bat in the first inning of last night's game against the Orix Buffaloes.  For Tamura, it was his second grand slam of his career -- the first came on 4/21/2004 vs Yomiuri at Tokyo Dome -- and 20th home run of the season.  The last time Tamura hit 20 or more homers in one season was back in 2005 when he played for the Yokohama Bay Stars.
