Tigers outfielder Andrew Romine hit what turned out to be a game-winning grand slam against the Twins on Wednesday. The fourth-inning blast off of Kyle Gibson turned a 3-1 deficit into a 5-3 lead. It’s the first grand slam of Romine’s career and only his seventh career home run.

Romine finished 2-for-3 on the afternoon, singling along with hitting the grand slam. He’s only taken 12 plate appearances so far this season, but he’s hitting .545/.545/1.091 with three doubles and a homer.

Romine’s reward for hitting a game-winning grand slam? He got randomly drug-tested after the game. Speaking to the media — including FOX 2 Sports — after that happened, Romine said he was “a little light-headed — they took blood.”
