Game #565 - Los Angeles Dodgers, 6 @ New York Mets, 0

Walt Terrell tried to keep it close for the Mets with a 2-0 deficit after a home run to Greg Brock in the third, but got pulled in the seventh when Alejandro Pena reached on error and got tripled home by Steve Sax (and then walked the next two batters to load the bases).  But reliever Jesse Orosco gave up back to back singles to Mike Marshall and Candy Maldonado to plate four total runs in the inning.  Meanwhile, Alejandro Pena has quietly been the most lethal pitcher on the season, leading the league in WHIP and keeping the Mets off balance for a complete game shutout.

Winning Pitcher - Alejandro Pena
Losing Pitcher - Walt Terrell
Player of the Game - Pena

Game #566 - San Francisco Giants, 5 @ Montreal Expos, 6

The Giants had a 3-0 lead after five innings thanks in part to Mike Krukow's stellar pitching and a two-run bomb by John Rabb.  But the wheels fell of for Krukow in the sixth.  Ten batters came to the plate, and Krukow and Scott Garrelts allowed five runs to score.  Pete Rose added an RBI single in the seventh, which was a good thing because Jeff Leonard cranked a two-run homer too in the eighth to bring the Giants within one of victory.  Alas, that's as close as they would get.

Winning Pitcher - David Palmer
Losing Pitcher - Mike Krukow
