Last night something incredible happened at Miller Park in Milwaukee: Washington Nationals outfielder Josh Willingham hit not one, but two grand slams, in back-to-back innings. He's only the 13th player in history to hit two in a game, and it hasn't happened for the franchise since they were the Expos, when Tim Wallach got eight RBIs on two grand slams in 1990. Check the video here.
