On September 13, 1931 — At Wrigley Field, the Cubs win 11 – 7 over the Braves when player-manager Rogers Hornsby cracks an 11th-inning pinch grand slam. This is the first extra-inning pinch grand slam in major league history. The Cubs take the second game, 8 – 1, behind Guy Bush’s one-hitter, his second of the year. His first was against the Cards on August 9th.
