Dontrelle hits a Grand Slam!

D-Train did it with a borrowed bat.

Using a bat loaned to him by second baseman Dan Uggla, Willis cranked a grand slam, a 405-foot blast to right off Jose Lima.

"I'm going to give him some more [bats],'' Uggla said after Willis improved his record to 6-7 and became the first major-league pitcher in four years to hit a bases-loaded home run. ``He's better than half of us, anyway.''

I'm not sure he is better than half of the team, but he is pretty darn good.

Everyone grab an Uggla bat - they're hot.
