Hard-Fought Split Leaves Expos in Second | Article Posted June 4, 2009

M/R rebounded from a tough game one loss and a late game two deficit to salvage a split versus the Hockey Plus/Loreman's Padres.  Wind proved to be a major factor throughout the day, as well-hit balls were turned into easy outs by the constant gale.

The first game nonetheless saw plenty of offense by both teams: a decisive two-run 7th provided the margin of victory for the Padres.  Billy Davis took the loss in relief of Mike Bergman, as neither was able to successfully combat the Padres bats and windy conditions.  Steve Criss and Pat Shaughnessy provided bright spots for the Spos', as the former smashed an opposite-field double off of the wall in right, and the latter legged out a triple.

It was Shaughnessy's triple in game two, however, that proved the most important by an Expo on the day.  His blast gave the Expos a lead in the sixth that they would not surrender, as Nick Lamica came on in support of Davis and shut down the Padres in the seventh.  Meanwhile, Justin Mahan racked up a double to complete another strong day at the plate, collecting three hits over the twinbill.

Next weekend sees the Expos playing a Lyon Mountain Miners team looking to bounce back from a one-sided loss to the Plattsburgh Cardinals.  With the Expos having lost handily to the Miners in their only previous meeting, both teams will come to the park with something to prove.
