On June 8 2014 — 2014 – The Astros hit their first two grand slams of the season, courtesy of Chris Carter and Jon Singleton, in defeating the Twins, 14 – 5. Dexter Fowler and George Springer add solo shots as it is only the second time Houston has ever hit two slams in one game, the other coming in 1969. Darin Downs is the beneficiary of the outburst, picking up his first win of the year after starter Collin McHugh has to leave early because of a blister.
