April 17th 1994,
The Expos batters forgot how hit, the pitchers forgot how to pitch and we sure do hope to forget about this one as soon as possible.
Kirk Reuter allowed 5 runs on 8 hits in just four innings including a homerun to Ellis Burks in the second, and RBI double to Charlie Hayes in the 4th, and RBI singles to Roberto Mejia and Marvin Freeman, the Rockies starter, in that same 4th inning.
Gil Heredia then allowed 1 point in 2 innings, a Roberto Mejia solo shot in the 6th.
Gabe White would the allow 2 in the 7th on a 2 run shot by Andres Galarraga.
For the winners, Marvin Freeman completed the game giving just 1 run on 6 hits, the run coming from a solo homerun by Mike Lansing in the 4th.
