Brandon Crawford Becomes Seventh Player To Hit Grand Slam In MLB Debut

One day you're called up to the Major Leagues for the first time in your career, the next day you hit what proves to be a game-winning grand slam? Not a bad start to your career in the bigs. That's what UCLA alum Brandon Crawford did when he went deep in the seventh inning to turn a 3-1 Giants deficit into a 5-3 lead and join some elite company.

With that home run, Crawford became just the seventh player in MLB history to hit a grand slam in his MLB debut. One of the others to do it? Chase Utley. That's two Bruins in seven. Not too shabby.

A fourth-round pick of the Giants, Crawford was a three-year starter at UCLA under head coach John Savage. He helped the Bruins reach the postseason in all three years, as well as a trip to the Super Regionals in 2007. He is ninth on UCLA's all-time doubles list and second on the Bruins' all-time triples list.
