The last time a Phillies player hit an inside-the-park grand slam, they were playing the New York Giants at the Polo Grounds in 1956.
The lined shot came off Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann in the top of the third inning with the Phillies trailing 1–0. Once the ball got past a diving Michael Taylor, Altherr rounded the diamond for his fourth home run of the season. He now has 15 RBIs since being recalled to on Aug. 18.
You can watch Altherr’s shot below.
