’94 Expos: The week that was (May 4-11)

By early May, the Expos still hadn’t picked up the steam we all remember but they had quite the exciting week in the finale against the Dodgers followed by trio of games in Atlanta before returning to the Big O for a three-game set with the Mets.

May 4 saw the Expos load the bases with nobody out against Todd Worrell, who struck out Wil Cordero swinging, then reliever Kevin Gross (ironically enough) also whiffed Lou Frazier before Tim Spehr singled to score Marquis Grissom to start the week off right for the ‘Spos with a 5-4 win in the final of a series against Los Angeles.

Montreal then traveled to Fulton County Stadium for a big early-season match-up with the Braves that opened up with a 5-0 blanking, followed by a heart-breaking second game that had Jeff Faserro pitching into the final frame with a 1-0 lead before giving up a game-winning, two-run homer to Mark Lemke of all people. Ken Hill then out-dueled John Smoltz over seven innings of three-hit, five-strike out ball before stepping aside for pinch-hitter Randy Milligan who delivered a sacrifice fly that plated Cordero and John Wetteland came in to close the door on his first save of the year in a 1-0 triumph.

The Expos closed out the week at home with the Mets, playing three more one-run affairs, two of them losses. Despite a two-run wallop from Larry Walker and four walks from Cordero on May 9, Mel Rojas gave up a solo shot to David Segui that proved a winner for New York 5-4. The next day, Moises Alou rocketed a two-run blast off of Bret Saberhagen, but John Wetteland blew his fourth save of the season on an RBI single by John Cangelosi and followed that up by surrendering a bomb to Joe Orsulak in the tenth. Frazier singled and stole second with two outs in the home half, but the Metropolitans hung on to claim the first two games of the series 3-2.

Finally on May 11, Frazier and Darrin Fletcher both went 3-for-4 while Pedro Martinez punched out eight over seven strong and Rojas notched his ninth save of the campaign to finish out the week on a winning note 4-3.

Montreal finished 3-4 over those seven days, going 3-3 in one-run games and sat 3.5 games out of first with a mark of 18-15.
