MILWAUKEE — Josh Willingham hit two grand slams and tied a franchise record with eight runs batted in, powering the Washington Nationals to a 14-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.

Willingham became the 13th player to hit two grand slams in a game and first since Boston's Bill Mueller hit one from each side of the plate July 29, 2003, against Texas. Willingham's eight RBIs were the most in Nationals history and tied the franchise mark, accomplished last by Tim Wallach for Montreal against San Diego in 1990.

Willingham finished three for five. Ryan Zimmerman also hit a home run for the Nationals.
