Video: Jose Abreu's 'grand' night vs. the Tampa Bay Rays

For those who may have not heard or seen the night Chicago White Sox first baseman had on Friday night … here is a video recap from MLB.com of his evening, as he lifted the Chicago White Sox to a 9-6 walk-off win with a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning over the Tampa Bay Rays with two outs.

 

Not only did Abreu hit the grand slam, he hit two home runs on the night, setting the MLB record for home runs by any rookie in the month of April. The record was previously held by Albert Pujols. Abreu is now one RBI away from tying Pujols’ rookie RBI record as well.

Abreu finished the game 3-for-5. For the season he’s batting .263 with the nine home runs, 27 RBIs, six doubles and one triple.

The White Sox signed Abreu this offseason to a six-year, $68 million deal.
