The Boston Red Sox wasted no time avenging their Game 1 loss in the American League Championship Series on Saturday afternoon — and they made history in the process.

The Red Sox hit two grand slams in two innings of of two different Astros pitchers to take a massive 8-0 lead early at Minute Maid Park. They are now the first team in MLB postseason history to have multiple grand slams in a single game.

J.D. Martinez got it going first, drilling a shot over the right field wall off of Luis Garcia. 

Then, in the next inning, Rafael Devers hit a similar homer off of Jake Odorizzi — which almost instantly gave them the eight-run advantage.

The Astros, , have only come back from an eight-run deficit or larger just once in team history.

after a big win 5-4 win on Friday night after Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa hit a pair of home runs late to pull the Astros out of an early 3-1 hole.
