SAUGET, Il. –  A minor league baseball player in Illinois experienced the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat Sunday night, all in one swing of the bat.

Gateway Grizzlies outfielder Brandon Thomas hit a grand slam in the bottom the second inning, smashing the windshield of a truck in the parking lot. Only after the game did Thomas realize the truck was his!

The team wrote on its Facebook page:

You can’t make this up! Brandon Thomas hit a grand slam deep over the left field wall tonight. He smashed a windshield in the parking lot!

Only one problem. That’s his own truck!

Thomas, who went 2 for 5 on the day with four RBIs, took the matter in stride, tweeting, “definitely worth it.”

The Grizzlies beat the Joliet Slammers 17-6.
