Willingham hits 2 grand slams
Willingham's first grand slam Monday night came with two outs in the fifth inning and capped a six-run inning for the Nationals when he drove the first pitch from Jeff Suppan over the left-center field wall to make it 6-2.
In Willingham's next at-bat in the sixth against reliever Mark DiFelice, he homered well over the Brewers' bullpen to give the Nationals a 13-5 lead.
Willingham's eight RBIs are a Nationals record and tied the franchise record for the former Montreal Expos.
The last time a player hit two slams in a game was Bill Mueller for Boston on July 29, 2003, against Texas.
