On September 15, 1978 — Phil Garner hits his 2nd grand slam in two days as the Pirates beat the Expos 6 – 1. Garner is the first National League player to have slams in consecutive games since Jimmy Sheckard (September 23-24, 1901) and the first major leaguer since Brooks Robinson, in 1962. Garner will end the season with 12 dingers.
