Kansas City Royals 29-year-old rookie Paulo Orlando made a name for himself with five triples in 13 games in April earlier this year, but on Tuesday became a hero with a walk-off grand slam to give the Royals a 9-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The second home run of the season for Orlando, in his 33rd game, put him in some elite company in Kansas City franchise history.
