The Montreal Expos have scored the fewest runs in the majors this season.
If it were up to Dontrelle Willis, they would be kept off the scoreboard altogether.
The reigning NL Rookie of the Year will look to extend his impressive scoreless streak against Montreal as the defending World Series champion Florida Marlins resume a three-game series at Olympic Stadium.
Willis has held the Expos scoreless in two starts this season. He beat them 3-0 in his season debut April 8, and posted a 9-0 victory in his next start April 14. Willis also struck out 12 over 12 2-3 innings in those two outings.
Willis is 4-1 with a 2.60 ERA in five career starts against Montreal, and boasts a 4-0 record with a 3.64 ERA in eight road starts this year.
The Expos hadn’t scored against the Marlins in 42 innings before snapping the streak with Friday’s 2-1 victory in the opener.
Montreal, which has scored just 319 runs this year, had been shut out in each of its previous four meetings with Florida.
The Expos, who were playing their first game at Olympic Stadium in four weeks, won their second in a row after losing five of seven.
Juan Pierre stole home for the only run for the Marlins, who had won three of their previous four.
Pierre finished 3-for-5, and is batting .444 (11-for-25) in his last five games.
