The Expos’ lastest victory came in a 6-5, 12-inning on Friday when they tagged six-time Cy Young award winner Roger Clemens for four runs, including a pair of homers in the first two innings. Montreal overcame a 5-4 deficit in the 12th, getting a homer from Alex Gonzalez with two outs to tie it before Terrmel Sledge singled home the winning run.
“I looked around the dugout and everyone was still upbeat,” Sledge said about the mood going into the bottom half. “It seems like we just don’t quit now. A couple of months ago we probably would just let it slide but now it seems like we don’t give up.”
Wilkerson finished 4-for-6, extending his hitting streak to seven games during which he is batting .481 (13-for-27) with two doubles and two RBIs.
The Astros, who were without manager Phil Garner as he served a one-game suspension, lost for the seventh time in nine games.
Kent is batting .385 (5-for-13) with a homer and five RBIs against the Expos this season.
