Boxscore of the week (UPDATED)

UPDATE: This box score represents the second game played by Joel Youngblood on 8/4/82. On that day, Youngblood became the only player in history to get hits for two different teams in two different cities on the same day. After Youngblood had driven in two runs with a single in the third inning for the Mets in an afternoon game at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs, he was replaced in center field by Mookie Wilson, and traded to the Montreal Expos. Youngblood rushed to Philadelphia in order to be with his new team, and hit a seventh inning single. Interestingly, the two pitchers he hit safely against, Ferguson Jenkins of the Cubs and Steve Carlton of the Philadelphia Phillies, are both in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Haven't done one of these in a while, so here goes.

What is the significance of this baseball boxscore?

See if you can come up with the answer without Google, Bing, etc.

All of the Expo's runs came off the bat of Tim Wallach, both with 2 outs in the inning.

Besides that, I got nothing.

I dimly remember that now, Brad. That was a tough one. I like this feature, by the way.
