Box score of the week

The 1994 Montreal Expos were a legitimate World Series contender. Sadly, the MLB players strike resulted in no postseason that year.

Anyhow, let's check out a game with those Expos hosting the Cincinnati Reds.


Expos pitcher Pedro Martinez had a perfect game going with one out in the eighth inning and Cincinnati's Reggie Sanders at the plate. With an 0-2 count on Sanders, Martinez drilled him with the next pitch. Inexplicably, Sanders felt as though Martinez threw at him intentionally, thus he charged the mound as soon as he was hit. Sanders was ejected, but Martinez stayed in the game. Martinez still had a no-hitter into the ninth inning but lost that to a leadoff single.
