Chris Dominguez blasts historic grand slam

Former Cardinal slugger Chris Dominguez made headlines last night by blasting the first grand slam in the history of the Richmond Flying Squirrels (nice) franchise. The Flying Squirrels (nice) are the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, who selected Dominguez in the third round of the 2009 MLB draft.

"I was just trying to get something I could drive," Dominguez said. "Hit up the middle and try to get a good pitch to hit. He gave me a good fastball to hit, middle-in, and I took advantage of it."

Dominguez is the reigning Eastern League player of the week after going 11-for-24 with seven doubles, a homer and eight RBI last week. He's adjusted quickly to Double-A pitching after hitting .291 with 11 homers and 40 RBIs in the Cal League at San Jose last year.
