May 2nd 1994,

What a dandy for the fans present tonight at the Olympic Stadium. The Expos scored 10 runs, six of them produced by catcher Darrin Fletcher, to win their 4th in a row and getting half a game behind the Atlanta Braves.

Things did not start to well for the Expos when, after 2 outs in the first, Tim Wallach hit a 2 runs shot against starter Ken Hill to take the lead.

The Expos started their productive night after 2 outs in the bottom of the first. First, Wil Cordero singled. Stole second. RBI double by Larry Walker. 2-1 L-A. 2 runs shot by Alou. 3-2 Expos. Solo shot by Fletcher. 4-2. In the second, always against ex-Expos Kevin Gross, Cordero walked for an RBI with the bases loaded.

The Dodgers got one back in the 6th when Wallach produced his 3rd point of the night on a single. That was Hill’s last inning. He gave up 3 runs on 4 hits in 6 innings.

The Expos scored another four in the bottom of the 7th on a Grand Slam from Fletcher. Fletcher would add a 6th RBI on a 2 outs single in the 8th.
