Marte finally shows power in Tribe win

Grand slams are supposed to be considered one of the rarest feats in the game of the baseball. Not for the Indians. The bases-clearing bomb has become commonplace for the Tribe and it’s to the point now where it would be odd if a week passes and the team doesn’t hit one. They added one more Tuesday night in their 7-2 win over the Blue Jays, bringing the Tribe’s 2006 grand slam total to a league-best 13. Andy Marte found himself in another bases loaded situation, similar to what he faced in the previous game when he popped out. This time, fortunately, the result was much better . Marte sent Jerremy Accardo’s first pitch over the center field wall in the eighth to break a 2-2 tie.

“It’s a different game,” Wedge said. “He’s a very intelligent player. He’s very aware of what he’s doing out there and you saw a big difference from night to night. He hit a ball about as well as you can hit it — squared it up and drilled it to center field. It was great for him and it was huge for us.”
