April 13, 1984 - Toilet Expos-ed
Game #104 - Philadelphia Phillies, 7 @ Montreal Expos, 6
Both teams have been in the crapper so far this season. Montreal has only won once and the Phillies were riding a three game losing streak. It was a scoreless game in the bottom of the third when Gary Carter splashed a homer for two runs and an Expos lead off starting pitcher Charles Hudson. That was all the damage Hudson allowed, though, through six innings.
Tim Corcoran flushed a solo shot in the fourth for Philly, and they got two more runs on hits from Corcoran again and SS Ivan DeJesus in the sixth. The Phillies had a 5-2 lead in the eighth when pinch hitter Luis Aguayo plopped a double to score Gary Maddox and Von Hayes. This ended up being the game winning hit because Montreal scored four runs in the eighth and ninth for a near comeback victory. But Larry Andersen struck out Bryan Little causing the Expos to circle the bowl.
