Late Scoring Seals Expo Sweep | Article Posted May 25, 2009

The Expos used strong pitching to ride out some early offensive miscues, and found their bats in the late innings of each game versus the Fourth Ward Athletics to cement a doubleheader sweep and a 3-1 CVBL record.  A 5-run 6th provided the cushion in an 11-2 game one win, while 7 runs in the final frame cemented an 11-2 victory in the afternoon tilt.

The 'Spos remained rock-solid from the mound: Billy Davis struck out 9 and allowed four hits over a complete first game, and Nick Lamica equalled his K count over 5 innings in game two.  Particularly encouraging was the return of Mike Bergman  in relief of Lamica: unable to pitch last week due to a nerve injury, he fanned four over the final two innings of the day to earn the save.

Pat Shaughnessy led the charge offensively, peppering the A's pitching to the tune of 4-6 with a double and a homerun over the course of the doubleheader.  Lamica and Justin Mahan also had solid days at the plate, each picking up three hits, including a double by Mahan.

While the Expos didn't fire on all cylinders from a batting standpoint, they confirmed the potency of their pitching and came through with their bats when they needed them.  Next weekend brings a Padres team to Chip Cummings Field that matched evenly with M/R for most of the '08 season, and improved their roster in the offseason through the addition of several former CR Tunes Mudhens.  If their previous meetings are any indication, it should be a stiff test of the Expos' mettle.
