Once again, the Expos and Reds didn’t disappoint. The dozen or so fans (probably less, actually) saw two of the division’s best teams tear into each other. In the end the Reds were on top by 6-3. Each team had eight hits. The errors were about even.
The Reds, the visiting team, though you would believe otherwise from how the web host structures this page, scored in the top of the 1st when Bill Nowak was hit by a pitch leading off and stole second. Two outs later he scored on Randy Gaber’s single.
The Expos struck right back with Glenn Griffin’s lead-off single and steal of second putting him in position to score after a wild pitch (or passed ball?) moved him up to third and a groundout to short got him in.
The Reds added single runs in the 3rd and 4th and after five innings it stood 3-1 Reds. In the 6th the Reds scored twice more. Tony Plicka reached on error and stole second. Bob Bezzi’s grounder to the right side got him to third and Nowak drove him in with a single, with Bill then scoring on Jim Pliner’s double.
The Expos once again struck right back with Dave Weidenhamer drawing a one out walk and stealing second. Dave Goldschmidt then singled him home but was caught stealing when Reds reliever Dan Ketter’s pick off attempt at first base caught him guessing wrong for the second out. Sean Dargan and Tony Barone followed with singles but Ketter then retired Mike Pflieger on a fly to left to limit the damage. 5-2 Reds.
In the 9th the Reds tacked on another, Kevin J Mack singling to lead off and stealing second, moving to third on Ketter’s grounder to the right side and scoring on Mac McClenaghan’s single.
One last chance for the Expos to respond and true to form, they did. Craig Anderson scorched one on the ground that got through to the outfield and stole second. He moved to third on a passed ball (wild pitch?) and scored on Andy Witt’s two out single. Weidenhamer then lined one to left but Mike Darwin made a nice catch, laying out for it, to end the night’s ‘hostilities.’
