Josh Willing-Slam!

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Nationals Outfielder Josh Willingham had the game of his life on Monday night at Miller Park, as the Nationals pounded the Brewers, 14-6.

Willingham became the 13th player in Major League history to hit two grand slams in a game. In the fifth inning, with the bases loaded and the score tied at 2, Willingham took an 0-1 pitch from Brewers right-hander Jeff Suppan and hit the ball over the left-field wall to give Washington a 6-2 lead.

An inning later, reliever Mike DiFelice was on the mound, when Willingham hit his second grand slam of the night to give Washington a 13-5 lead.

The last player to hit two grand slams in a game was Red Sox infielder Bill Mueller, who did the trick on July 29, 2003.

...Did you know Fernando Tatis is the only player ever to hit 2 grand slams in the same inning in a game....from 2 different sides of the plate?...Well, now you do....
