Since Robbie Grossman's return to the big leagues he's flashed some surprising power smacking four home runs and eight doubles for a .508 slugging percentage in 130 plate appearances. Thursday night he showed off another hidden skill...his mad ups.

Grossman not only got the final out of the inning but also debunked the white men can't jump myth.
