Expos Expose Houston to Stretch Win Streak to Six

Montreal moves its record to a gaudy 19-9 and hikes its win streak to six, while totaling shutting down Houston's offense in this two game series.

Game One: David Palmer pitches like an ace, shutting out Houston on eight hits and no runs in a complete game win for his first win (1-0). The 'Stros' Nolan Ryan continues to struggle with his new team, dropping to 2-5 while walking five in a wild performance. A double from Ron LeFlore and a clutch single by Tony Bernazard accounted for much of the scoring. Mon 3, Hou 0.

Game Two: Montreal jumps out to three first innings runs off Houston starter Ken Forsch (4-2), led by crushing doubles from Andre Dawson and Larry Parrish. Scott Sanderson (4-2) keeps Houston off balance after that, as does reliever Woody Fryman, who picks up his fifth save. Houston only manages six singles in the easy Montreal win. Mon 4, Hou 2.
