San Diego split

April 21th 1994,

The Padres opened the score in the 1st for the second consecutive game. That time, the expos answered back

After 1 out in the bottom of the 1st, Tony Gwynn reached third base on a triple against Ken Hill. The next batter, Derek Bell, sent him home with a single. It was the only point Hill would give in 6 innings of work.

Hill himself would produce the game tying run with a two outs single in the top of the second to push Wil Cordero home. The Expos took the lead in the 6th when an error by Luis Lopez on a Cordero grounder after 2 outs permitted Marquis Grissom to reach home. It was the 2nd game in a row that the game winning run was the result of a two outs error. In the 7th Walker produced the 3rd Expos run with a single that pushed Cliff Floyd to the plate.

Tim Scott in the 7th, Mel Rojas in the 8th and John Wetteland in the 9th would throw perfect innings to preserve the game for Montreal.
