Closer but still not enough!

April 6th 1994,

For the second game in a row, the Expos tried to come back from 6-0. They came 1 point closer than they did yesterday. Same result.

An Andy Stankiewicz double with 2 men on produced the first run of the game in the bottom of the 3rd against Kirk Reuter. The Astros once again had a big inning that changed the game. In the 5th, they scored 5 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks. The 5 run inning was highilited by RBI doubles from Biggio and Servais and a 2 run Homerun from Andujar Cedeno.

The Expos answered with 3 points in the 6th inning. Lou Frazier started the inning with a single and a stolen base before being sent home by a Mike Lansing single. After Larry Walker’s double, Darin Fletcher hit a 2 runs single. The Expos added a point in the 7th when Mike Lansing produced his 2nd point of the night with a sacrifice fly that pushed Cliff Floyd to the plate. Wilfredo Cordero added a point to make it 6-5 with a solo Homerun in the 8th, but Mitch Williams blocked the door in the 9th to complete the Astros' sweep.
