What are the odds?

WEEI, which broadcasts Red Sox games on the radio, runs a contest during every game called the "Chevy Equinox Grand Slam Inning." The rules state that if the fourth batter in the Red Sox half of the fourth inning hits a grand slam, the contestant will win a brand new Chevy Equinox. So, if the fifth batter hits a grand slam, no dice.

I'm dying to know what the odds are of winning this contest. I know for a fact that several math geniuses read my blog. Perhaps one of you can provide an answer.

the odds would change depending on who the 4 batters are and who is pitching. just got back from "the bank" and saw the phils win. got a cheesesteak from tony lukes, tasted like a cheesesteak, whats the big deal?
