MONTREAL (AP) -- Marlon Anderson hit a three-run double and Randy
Wolf hit an RBI single and pitched seven strong innings as the
Philadelphia Phillies completed a two-game sweep with a 6-3 win
over the Montreal Expos on Tuesday night.
Anderson's bases-clearing double chased Tony Armas (8-9) to cap
Philadelphia's five-run outburst in the fourth. The Phillies scored
eight runs in the ninth Monday for an 11-8 comeback win. Wolf (5-6), who also doubled, allowed seven hits and three runs
as he won for just the second time in his last 10 starts. Jose Mesa pitched the ninth for his 25th save in 31
opportunities. Travis Lee hit his eighth homer off reliever Dan Smith with one
out in the seventh as the Phillies completed a 4-2 road trip.
Philadelphia has won 14 of its last 19 road games. Trailing 1-0, Pat Burrell walked leading off the fourth before
advancing to second on Mike Lieberthal's two-out single. Both
runners advanced on Armas' wild pitch to Tomas Perez, who was then
intentionally walked to load the bases. Wolf hit an RBI single to tie it at 1. Lieberthal scored the
go-ahead run from third on Armas' second wild pitch of the inning
and Ricky Ledee walked to load the bases once again. Anderson followed with a drive to the gap in right-center field
to clear the bases and put the Phillies up 5-1. Armas, who leads the majors with 13 wild pitches, allowed five
hits and five runs in 3 2/3 innings. He walked five -- two
intentionally -- and struck out five. The rally followed a seven-minute delay in the bottom half of
the third after Perez, the shortstop, caught Vladimir Guerrero's
foul ball off the stadium's concrete rim. Third-base umpire Jerry Meals called Guerrero out to end the
inning and the Phillies left the field as Expos manager Frank
Robinson came out of the dugout to discuss the call along the
third-base line. The Expos remained in their dugout for several minutes while the
rest of the umpiring crew joined Meals as Robinson continued
arguing, even after the Montreal players were summoned onto the
field. Andres Galarraga extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a
run-scoring single in the bottom half of the fourth to make it 5-2. Lee's homer in the seventh put Philadelphia ahead 6-2 but Brad
Wilkerson's sacrifice fly in the bottom half cut the lead back to
three. Orlando Cabrera drove in the Expos' first run with an RBI double
in the second.
