Astros 3, Expos 1
James Rodney Richard was staked to a 3-0 lead in the first and never looked back. Montreal finally got on the board in the 9th when they scratched out a lone run. On the 8th pitch of the game Wilbur Howard hit a towering shot off of Expo starter Ross Grimsley to make it 1-0. A few batters later Joe Ferguson hit a 2 run shot. Grimsley settled down to post goose eggs on the board the rest of the way, but Richard was practically unhittable.
