One Slipped Away

April 10th 1994,

The Expos were going for the sweep tonight against the Cubs and they did not lose time to take the lead.

Marquis Grissom started the game with a double and crossed the plate on another double from Moises Alou. Then in the third, a Larry Walker double after 2 outs pushed Mike Lansing to the plate. Walker would score himself on a Darin Fletcher single.

The Cubs came back from behind in the 4th on consecutives RBI doubles from Derrick may and Sammy Sosa. Sosa would cross the plate on an Eddie Zambrano sacrifice to tie the teams at 3.

The Expos did not lose time to take the lead again, that time in the 5th, on Walker’s 2nd RBI double of the evening agains Jose Guzman.

Ken Hill gave up 3 runs in 6 innings before being replaced by Tim Scott who threw a scoreless inning. In the 8th, Mel Rojas gave up 2 runs on 4 singles that put the Cubs on top. Dan Plesac and Randy Myers would throw scoreless innings to preserve the Cubs’ victory.
