Eventually, Fernando Tatis did it, too, and got both of them in the same inning off the same pitcher, Chan Ho Park.

Robert Person hit a grand slam, a 3-run homer, and also struck out with the bases loaded.

However, since this appears to be the only two-GS game by a pitcher, maybe they were only talking about a long fly ball with bases not loaded, or it was in a minor league game, or I don't remember correctly...

the brewers beat the pirates in 3 games by a combined 36-1 then go home and lose 3 straight scoring only 4 runs...then the pirates show up and the brewers score 17.
it ain't the brewers.
