April 19, 1984 - Biggest Inning of the Year
I finally got my scanner working again! The last few posts I was copying off the internet, but Jim Wohlford represents a return to my collection...
The Mets jumped out to a 5-0 lead when Bryn Smith gave up RBI doubles to Keith Hernandez and George Foster in the first and a Mookie Wilson double in the third. Miguel Dilone pinch hit for Smith in the sixth, and that's when the wheels fell off for Sid Fernandez and the Mets. "El Sid" gave up a hit to Dilone and walked three straight Expos after that before finally getting lifted. Brent Gaff came in for relief and got two quick outs with the bases loaded, but gave up another four hits and a walk. That's when Jim Wohlford took Wes Gardner deep for a grand slam home run. When all was said and done, the Expos scored ten runs in the inning, which I'm pretty sure is a record for this Statis Pro League.
