Expos Prevail 3-2 in the 8th over Yankees to Win the Series
Intense Chad Craig vs. Dan Dorland Pitching DuelUpdated Friday September 14, 2018 by Andy Philip.
The Expos' Chad Craig and Yankees' Dan Dorland locked horns in a great pitching matchup, with Dorland giving up 2 unearned runs in the 1st and then getting out of a few jams over the next 5 innings. Craig also got out of a few tough spots, holding the Yankees scoreless until they plated 2 in the bottom of the 6th. He then held off the local Bronx Bombers in the 7th with a runner at 3rd and only 1 out with help from Expos SS Smithson making a major league level clutch play on a hard grounder up the middle to force the 3rd out at 2nd, keeping the game tied at 2.
The Expos won it in the 8th, with Tibbles delivering a clutch 2 out double to score Philip before the Yankees threw out Filipenko trying to score from 1st on a very close play at home with a perfect Krause to Ron Dorland to Trevor Sharpe relay. Tibbles then came on in the 8th in relief of Craig and closed out the game with a K with a Yankees runner on 3rd.
A real nail biter PMBL playoff classic!
