Interesting Stat During Cubs-Mets Game

A few minutes ago the announcers mentioned that Ian Happ hit a grand slam and struck out four times in the game yesterday.  They mentioned that this had only been done a few times since 1913 (and probably ever).

I think that it happened either five or six times.  One player from the Kellogg's era was the first to do this and he did it twice.  He only had a total of 11 career grand slams, so how did he do this twice?  Simple he struck out a lot - it helps to be the all-time leader in strikeouts as a hitter.
