Via Nikkan Sports: The Elias Sports Bureau reported that Yoshinori Tateyama became the first pitcher to give up back-to-back grand slams since Seattle Mariner Greg McCarthy in 1988 (8/12 and 8/18).
Tateyama gave up a grand slam to the last batter he faced (Carl Crawford) during a relief outing against the Boston Red Sox on 9/3. He then surrendered another grand slam to the first batter he faced (Scott Sizemore) in his next relief stint on 9/10 (vs the Oakland A's).
