I can't say that I know the answer but I do know that there has

been only one pitcher to hit two grand slams in the same game. That

was Tony Cloninger of the Atlanta Braves against the San Francisco

Giants on July 3, 1966. He was the first player in the history of

the National League to do it. Cloninger also had an RBI single in

the game to end up with 9 RBIs which is also an MLB record for a

pitcher. The Braves won that game 17-3.

Micah Owings of the Arizona Diamondbacks did it on August 18,

2007 against the Atlanta Braves.

Wes Farrell did it 4 times. With the Cleveland Indians against

the Chicago White Sox on August 31, 1931 ... with the Red Sox

against the St. Louis Browns on July 13, 1934 ... with the Red Sox

against the Washington Senators on July 31, 1935 ... with the Red

Sox against the Philadelphia Athletics on August 12, 1936.

Don Drysdale of the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Milwaukee

Braves on August 23, 1958.
