April 26th 1994,

The Expos started their 8 games home stand on the right foot tonight with a 4-3 victory against the San Francisco Giants.

The first batter of the game, Mike Lansing, scored to give the Expos a 1-0 lead in the first when Larry Walker pushed him home with a 2 outs single. In the 4th, Jeff Fassero himself would help double then lead when he pushed Moises Alou home after 2 outs.

The Giants would come back and tie the score in the 6th with a 2 runs homerun by Matt Williams.

Cliff Floyd then hit a 1 run shot in the 7th to give Montreal a 1 run lead.

On top of the 8th, Mike Carreon brought once again the team even with a solo shot against Mel Rojas.

The Expos would take the lead back bottom of the 8th when Wilfredo Cordero hit a bases loaded sac-fly that pushed walker home against Salomon Torres. John Wetteland threw a perfect 9th inning to get his 7th save of the season.
