Unlucky 13

April 27th 1994,

It took 13 inning to find a winner tonight between the Expos and the Giants.

The Giants took an early lead in the 2nd when Barry Bonds pushed Matt Williams home with a triple with no outs. Bonds would himself score on a Royce Clayton RBI single.

In the bottom of the 4th, after Marquis Grissom singled and stole 2nd base, Walker walked and Alou hit an infield single to load the bases with no outs. Darrin Fletcher then pushed Grissom home while hitting in a 5-4-3 double play.

The Giants then took control of the game when Matt Williams hit a 3 runs shot against Ken Hill in the 6th. Darren Lewis would add a solo shot in the 7th to give San Francisco a 6-1 lead.

The Giants looked like they were going away with this one when the Expos rallied for 4 points in the 8th. Cliff Floyd started the inning with a single. Grissom then hit his 3rd straight hit of the game, that time a 2 runs homerun to bring the Expos 2 points closer. After 2 outs, Lenny Webster hit a double against reliever Steve Frey, who then conceded a 2 runs shot to Wilfredo Cordero, his 3rd of the season.

The Expos would add one bottom of the 9th when with 2 on and 2 outs against closer Rod Beck, Juan Bell and Cordero both took advantage of consecutive Giants’ errors to bring the teams even at 6.

We would then have to wait until the 13th inning to see Royce Clayton push Barry Bonds home with the winning run single against Tim Scott.
