Leaving the Basement

April 13th 1994,

In another pitchers’ duel, the Expos prevailed to win a second game in a row against the Reds.

The Expos scored two in the 2nd against Jose Rijo when consecutive singles from Sean Berry and Cliff Floyd pushed Larry Walker and Wilfredo Cordero to the plate. That would be the Expos only points of the evening.

Butch Henry had a great first start of the season allowing 1run on 5 hits and 2 walks with 6 strikeouts in 7.2 innings of work. The Reds’ only point of the evening came from Tony Fernandez crossing the plate on Reggie Sanders’ double after 2 outs in the 8th.

John Wetteland shut the door in 1.1 innings to get his first save of the season.

The Expos are leaving for a 10 games in 10 days road trip in the west. Their 10th game in the season will be the 1st they play outside.
