5/7 Fontenot delivers in pinch
Mike Fontenot may have lost his job as the Cubs second baseman but he came through Friday. Fontenot delivered a pinch-hit grand slam in the eighth inning against the Reds, the first by a Cubs player since Derrek Lee did so May 19, 2007, against the White Sox. Fontenot has been bumped from second now that Ryan Theriot is switching from short to make room for Starlin Castro. And yes, it was Fontenot’s first career grand slam.
