April 18, 1984 - Expos Win!?!

Game #151 - Montreal Expos, 5 @ New York Mets, 2

Whadya know, Montreal won another game!

This one was very much a pitcher's duel.  Charlie Lea was throwing for the Expos while Walt Terrell had the ball for New York.  The game was scoreless through the first five innings.  In the top of the sixth, though, Montreal broke the shutout.  With two outs Pete Rose hit a single and scored when the next batter, Bryan Little, hit a triple.  Little scored too because Angel Salazar blooped a single after that. 

Lea went eight innings only allowing one run, which was unearned due to a Pete Rose error.  Reliever Gary Lucas gave up a homer in the ninth to Darryl Strawberry, but that was all the New York bats managed to produce.
