April 21, 1984 - Expos Sweep the Twin Bill

Game #185 - Montreal Expos, 10 @ St. Louis Cardinals, 3

Montreal has been terrible this year, but this day could go down in the Statis Pro season as their major turning point.

The Expos and Cardinals had traded blows through the first four innings to make it a 3-3 game.  Tim Raines walked to lead off the fifth, and two outs later, Andre Dawson punished Jaquin Andujar with a two run job to give the Expos the lead.  They wound up adding five more runs in the eighth to pad their stats.

Winning Pitcher - Steve Rogers
Losing Pitcher - Andujar
Player of the Game - Tim Raines, 3-4, 3R's, HR, 3RBI's, BB, SB
Hall of Famers in the Game - Gary Carter, Andre Dawson

And they weren't done!

Game #186 - Montreal Expos, 10 @ St. Louis Cardinals, 4

Congrats to the St. Louis Cardinals, who had the ugliest inning of the the top of the first!  Ken Oberkfell committed two errors, starter Ricky Horton could only record one out before being lifted, and the Cards ended up trailing 9-0 before one of their batters ever stepped to the plate.  Every Expos starter, including pitcher David Palmer, scored a run. 

Winning Pitcher - David Palmer
Losing Pitcher - Ricky Horton
Player of the Game - Derrel Thomas, 2-5, 2B, 3RBI's, 2R's
Hall of Famers in the Game - Gary Carter (playing first base), Ozzie Smith
