Slam Diego! Cronenworth hits Padres’ 5th slam in 6 games

Royals beat slumping Astros 6-5

By BERNIE WILSON

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Trent Grisham hit three home runs and rookie Jake Cronenworth launched a grand slam in a wild nine-run second inning, making the San Diego Padres the first team in major league history to hit five slams in six games as they cruised to a 13-2 rout of the Houston Astros. Earlier in the week, the Padres became the first club to hit a grand slam in four straight games. Grisham had his first three-homer game and drove in a career-high six runs. Zach Davies, who came over from Milwaukee with Grisham in an offseason deal, pitched eight brilliant innings to help the Padres win their sixth straight game.
