PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) – Ike Davis became the first player to hit grand slams for different teams in the same April as the Pittsburgh Pirates twice overcame deficits to beat the Reds 6-5 Monday night.

Pittsburgh trailed 2-0 before Davis’ fourth-inning homer off Mike Leake. Davis hit a game-winning slam off the Reds’ J.J. Hoover on April 5 for the New York Mets, who traded him to the Pirates on Friday.

According to STATS, no player previously hit slams for different teams in the same April. Davis became just the third to hit slams for different teams against the same opponent in the same year, following Ray Boone in 1953 and Mike Piazza in 1998.

The Pirates were behind 5-4 before Andrew McCutchen’s leadoff homer in the eighth against Manny Parra.

Neil Walker got the game-winning run single with two outs in the ninth inning off Hoover (1-2) after consecutive one-out walks to Russell Martin and Andrew McCutchen followed by Pedro Alvarez’s popout.
