Felix Hernandez hits Grand Slam

One moment, Felix Hernandez was rounding the bases in glee after hitting the first grand slam by an American League pitcher in 37 years.

A few innings later, he was spiking his cap to the ground in frustration after being injured.
Hernandez hit a stunning grand slam off Johan Santana, then departed with a sprained ankle before he could qualify for a win in the Seattle Mariners' 5-2 victory over the New York Mets on Monday night.
Fast Facts

Felix Hernandez became the first pitcher to hit a grand slam since Dontrelle Willis in 2006 as the Mariners have now won six straight games vs. the Mets.

Facing a fellow ace from Venezuela, Hernandez connected off Santana (7-6) with two outs in the second inning to give Seattle a 4-0 lead.
"My approach? Just swing. I closed my eyes," said Hernandez, who figured it was his first home run since Little League. "I was happy and I was thinking that's all I need -- four runs."
The opposite-field shot to right-center was the first home run by a pitcher in Mariners history, and the first slam by an AL hurler since Cleveland's Steve Dunning went deep against Oakland's Diego Segui on May 11, 1971, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
"He had a pretty good swing," Santana said. "The pitch was out of the strike zone, it was up like it was supposed to be, and all of a sudden the ball leaves the park. There's nothing you can do about it."

It sucks that he got injured a couple innings later... he was one strike shy of being the pitcher of record...
