Some Joe Inglett trivia

Two things you have to know about Joe Inglett:

– He’s already had a Miller Park moment. Inglett hit a grand slam off David Riske on June 19, 2008, a Blue Jays-Brewers game that was memorable because the Jays nearly spoiled a big day for Dave Bush. Bush took a no-hitter into the eighth inning that day and the Brewers had an 8-0 lead, but Toronto scored once in the eighth and six more times in the ninth before Salomon Torres closed out an 8-7 win. 
Among the players who trotted home on Inglett’s only career grand slam was Gregg Zaun, who signed with the Brewers in December. 
– He has a sweet nickname: Voodoo Joe. The moniker came from former Jays manager John Gibbons, who noticed on more than one occasion that just when the team was poised to demote Inglett to the Minors, injury to another player would prolong his stay. 
Hopefully, Inglett doesn’t have the same knack with the Brewers.
