It’s rare for teams to blow a 7-0 lead. 

It’s even rarer to win a game on a walk-off grand slam. 

Somehow, the Cleveland Indians managed to do both Tuesday with Edwin Encarnacion hitting the grand slam in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Indians an 11-7 win over the Los Angeles Angels. 

Perhaps more remarkable, this was the Indians‘ second grand slam of the game — they hit one in the second inning as well. 

This was the first time a team had hit two grand slams in a game since 1999.
