'Spos sweep Phightins's with 24 consecutive shutout innings
The Expos shutout the Phightin's for 24 straight innings to start the series en route to a sweep of their divisional rivals. Scott Sanderson (5 hitter) and Steve Rogers (6 hitter) took care of business. Montreal utilized the speed of LeFlore and Scott to perfection along with the longball from Parrish, Dawson and Valentine. In the finale the Spaceman, Bill Lee, kept the scoreless streak going until the 7th when he gave up 2 runs. By that point the score was 5-2, but Philly would not inch any closer as Stan Bahnsen came on to finish it off.
