Expos take rubber game in 11 to take 2 of 3 from Reds.

June 5, 1981:  Steve Rogers goes eight strong innings as Montreal downs the Reds 6-2 in the series opener.  With the Expos leading 3-2 in the top of the eighth Expos rightfielder Warren Cromartie greeted Reds reliever Joe Price with a blast over the right field fence to extend the Montreal lead to 4-2.  The Expos added two more runs in the ninth for the 6-2 final.  Rogers (11-1) picked up the win while Soto (3-5) was the hard luck loser, throwing seven strong innings.

June 6, 1981:  Tom Seaver (5-5) tosses a three hit complete game shutout as the Reds down the Expos 3-0.  Seaver struck out seven while walking four.   The Reds plated all three of their runs in the second inning.  Back to back one out doubles by Concepcion and Knight gave Cincinnati their first run.  Driessen then followed with his fifth home run of the season.  Charlie Lea (0-4) suffered the defeat.

June 7, 1981:  The Expos scored four runs in the eleventh to break-up a one all deadlock and hung on for the 5-3 win.  With one out Cromartie walked, Montanez then laced a triple scoring Crow.  After Parrish flew out, Speier doubled then pinch hitter Bobby Ramos drilled a two run shot down the left field line, just clearing the fence.  Fryman picked up the win in relief while Moskau (2-3) was pinned with the loss.
