April 11th 1994,
In that 1st game of the series against the Reds, Mel Rojas would once again influence the final result on a bad way.
The Expos opened the score in the 2nd when Sean Berry’s single against Tom Browning pushed Larry Walker to the plate.
Kirk Reuter, very solid tonight, gave up his only run of the evening in the 7th when Jerome Walton pushed Lenny Harris home with a two-outs single, only to see the Expos take back the one run lead at their end of the inning when Sean Berry Produced his second RBI single of the game, his third single of the evening.
Reuter looked like he was about to get his first win of the season when Mel Rojas, for the second time in as many nights, gave up 2 runs in the 8 to put the opposing team on top. Reggie Sanders’ double with no outs pushed Barry Larkin to the plate. Sanders would score the game leading run on Hal Morris’ single after one out.
Hector Carrasco in the 8th, and Jeff Brantley in the 9th shut the door for the Reds win.
