From strikeouts to grand slams

Derek Norris struck out 4 times in the first 8 innings Friday vs. the Pirates. But his at-bat with two out in the 9th and the bases loaded in a tie game went differently: He hit a walk-off grand slam, the first in MLB this season. Norris is only the 8th player in the live-ball era to have 4 K's and a grand slam in the same game, but the first to have the slam be a walk-off.

I don't think he served well, but he made a lot of returns and he just does what he does best: that's make a lot of balls and mix up the game."
