With the hard fought victory, the second seeded Expos advance to a Bantam Division Championship showdown against the top seeded A’s at Dominico Field on Thursday, September 12 at 6:30 p.m.
Trailing 10-7, the Expos rallied for four runs in the bottom of the fourth to take an 11-10 lead that they would not surrender.
The Expos tacked on four insurance runs in the bottom of the fifth to widen their advantage to 15-10.
