Too little too late

April 5th 1994,

The Expos woke up a bit too late tonight in Houston. Ken Hill gave 6 runs (5 erated) on 12 hits in 6.2 innings of work while the Expos took 7.1 innings to figure how to hit Doug Drabek.

The Astros scored their 1st point in the night in the 2nd inning on a Larry Walker error on a fly ball hit by James Mouton. They added 3 points in the 4th on 4 hits including a 2 run double by Jeff Finley after one out. Craig Biggio went deep with a 2 run shot in the 6th to make it 6-0 Astros.

The Expos tried a comeback in the 8th with 4 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks, including a 2 RBIs double by pinch hitter Rondell White. Todd Jones came in to close the door with the final out in the 8th. Mitch Williams gave a hit and a walk in the night, but striked Larry Walker with two men on bases to end the game.
