It’s been a good week for Rangers catcher Bobby Wilson. Just six days after belting the first grand slam of his eight-year career, Wilson hit another one on Saturday.

Wilson came to bat with the bases loaded in the bottom of the second inning, and hit a 3-2 pitch from Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada deep to left-center for a home run on the 11th pitch of the at-bat. It was only his second home run of the season, and just the 11th of the journeyman’s career. It gave Texas, in pursuit of its 21st win, a 4–0 lead.

His first career grand slam came last Sunday, against Tigers reliever Mark Lowe.

Wilson entered hitting .333 in 21 at bats on the year.
