A new king in town!

April 12th 1994,

Pedro Martinez had a great 1st game. Nobody expected him to repeat. He did not. He did even better.

In his second start as an Expo, Martinez threw a complete game shutout giving 4 hits, 1 walk, and registering 7 strikeouts to get his first win of the season and put the Expos back on track. In two starts, he has now allowed 1 run in 17 innings with 19 strikeouts.

Marquis Grissom started the game for the Expos with a solo shot against Tim Pugh. It was his first dinger of the season.

Montreal added one in the fourth when Cliff Floyd hit in a bases loaded double play with no outs that pushed Darin Fletcher to the plate.

The Expos last run came in the 7th. After a Moises Alou double, Larry Walker singled to push him home.
