Luis Urias, who was acquired by the Boston Red Sox from the Milwaukee Brewers, is having a grand time with his new team.
Grand slams in consecutive games played is very rare. The last Red Sox player to do it was Jamie Fox in 1940. Taking it a step further, he is the only Boston player to ever hit two grand slams on consecutive pitches faced.
Luis Urías is the first Red Sox player to hit a grand slam in back-to-back games played since Jimmie Foxx in 1940.

Luis Urías is the only Red Sox player ever to hit a grand slam on consecutive pitches faced.
He joined Bill Mueller as the only Red Sox ever to hit a grand slam in consecutive plate appearances. (Mueller did so on 7/29/2003 at TEX, in the 7th and 8th innings.)
