PLAYERS: Jamie Moyer
TEAMS: Colorado Rockies
Giancarlo Stanton is only 22 years old, but he already has accounted for four career grand slams and one broken scoreboard. The slugging outfielder, who is recognized as one of baseball’s most powerful hitters, bashed a grand slam off Jamie Moyer on Monday that sailed beyond the left field foul pole and broke the scoreboard at Marlins Park. The homer was Stanton’s ninth of the season and gave him 28 RBIs on the year. Its estimated length was 438 feet. It didn’t take long for the team to fix the board; less than a half hour later it was all patched up: Here’s another up-close look at the damage he did: Forearm bash to The Big LeadPhoto credits: Joe Capozzi, WSVN-TV
