Chris Carter and Jon Singleton hit their first career grand slams to power the Houston Astros to a 14-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins yesterday. Carter's slam in the seventh inning sailed over the limestone overhang in right field and gave Houston a 9-3 lead. Singleton lined a fastball off Glen Perkins over the right-field wall that made it 14-5 in the ninth.
The Minnesota Twins have signed free-agent first baseman/designated hitter Kendrys Morales to a one-year, prorated $12 million contract. Morales hit .277 with 23 home runs and 80 RBIs in 156 games with the Seattle Mariners last season. The prorated portion of Morales' contract will total slightly more than $7.4 million.
