April 23rd 1994,
Pedro Martinez showed his big brother that his stellar start is far than being a fluke, throwing a complete game giving up only 1 run to get his 3rd win of the season.
Mike Lansing, second batter of the game, hit a double against Ramon Martinez and crossed the plate on Larry Walker’s single.
The Dodgers would even the game in the 4th when Tim Wallach pushed Brett Butler home with a sacrifice fly.
The Expos would then take a big lead their first big inning in a while. They scored four runs in the 6th, two of them from Wil Cordero’s second long ball of the season. It was only the 5th Expos homerun in their 18th game. Marquis Grissom produced the other 2 runs of the inning with a single.
Pedro completed the game giving up one run on 4 hits and one walk, striking out 11 in the process.
