April 16th 1994,

The Expos won their 4th in a row tonight to play above .500 baseball for the first time of the season.

It did not look to good at first when Dante Bichette hit a 2 run shot against Ken Hill after only one out in the bottom of the first.

The Expos answered with 2 points at their turn at bat top of 2nd. After a Darin Fletcher single and a Wilfredo Cordero double, Berry produced a run with a sacrifice fly followed by a one run single by Cliff Floyd against Mike Harkey.

The game stayed tied at 2 until the top of the 7th inning. After an out, Lou Frazier produced a run with a single. Darren Holmes would then give up 2 consecutive walks with the bases loaded to give the Expos a 5-2 lead. The Expos added one on top of the 9th when Darrin Fletcher got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. The Expos got 8 bases on balls in the game. We learned after the game that Fletcher will be out a couple of games.

Gil Heredia got sent to the mound in the 9th with a 4 points lead. After walking Mike Kingery, Dante Bichette hit his 2nd homerun of the night to bring the Rockies 2 points close. John Wetteland was then spelled and struck out two before forcing Joe Girardi to hit a grounder to Cordero, who threw it to Floyd in time to end the game.
