Wieters' 10th-inning grand slam in the Orioles' 10-4 comeback win over the White Sox on Monday was just the fifth extra-inning grand slam in club history over the past 50 years, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The others were by Brooks Robinson (July 7, 1970 vs. New York), Tommy Davis (July 27, 1975 at Milwaukee), Joe Nolan (August 24, 1982 vs. Toronto) and Harold Baines (May 4, 1999 vs. the White Sox).
Wieters' grand slam followed his eighth-inning solo homer, making Wieters the first Oriole to homer twice in a game in the eighth inning or later since August 23, 2005, when Miguel Tejada did it against the Angels. The last major leaguer to do it was Evan Longoria on September 28, 2011 against the Yankees, the night the Orioles knocked the Red Sox out of playoff contention, allowing the Rays to clinch a postseason spot.
