This post is dedicated to all who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we have the freedom to play inconsequential games like Statis Pro.
Dave Rozema turned in one of the top pitching performances of the season in this one. It looked good early as he struck out the side in the bottom of the first. Cecil Cooper led off with a double in the bottom of the second and that would be the only extra base hit of the game. By the bottom of the ninth the Brew Crew only had two hits and no walks. With two outs Bob Clark and Jim Sundberg hit back to back singles and then Robin Yount flew out to the warning track in left to end the game. Rozema only faced three hitters above the minimum while blanking Milwaukee.

The Pirates jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the second thanks to a pair of homers from Tony Pena and Doug Frobel. Pena scored the fourth run of the game in the fourth off a sacrifice fly from Dale Berra.
The Expos made a game of it in the bottom of the sixth. Tim Raines led off with a triple and then Bryan Little doubled him home. Little scored on the play after Lee Lacy booted the ball in left field. One out later Gary Carter launched a solo bomb to close the Pittsburgh lead to one.
The Pirates cushioned their lead in the seventh, though, on RBI hits from Marvelle Wynne and Jason Thompson. They piled on four more in the top of the ninth to turn it into a route.
