Mini Sweep!

April 19th 1994,

The Expos hit early and never looked behind tonight to complete the 2 games sweep of the Giants, their first one of the season.

The Expos started the game with 5 runs and 7 hits in the first against a struggling John Burkett. Larry Walker produced 2 with a double. Wilfredo Cordero, Sean Berry and Cliff Floyd produced the other runs.

The Giants came back in the 4th. After a Robby Thompson walk, Marquis Grissom got his 3rd error on the season on a fly ball from Matt Williams. Butch Henry then threw an intentional walk to Barry Bonds to load the bases after one out. Todd Benzinger, the next batter, sent Henry’s offering deep in the left field stands to bring the Giants 1 point close at 5-4. Henry threw 6 innings giving up 4 runs on 3 hits, 2 walks and registered 2 strikeouts.

After Tim Scott and Mel Rojas threw scoreless innings in the 7th and 8th, the Expos added an insurance run in the ninth when Floyd produced his 2nd point in the game sending Juan Bell, who was pinch running for Darrin Fletcher, home with a single against Mike Jackson.

John Wetteland gave up a hit but registered 2 strikeouts in a scoreless 9th to get his 4th save of the season.
