Game Story

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (Ticker) -- Dontrelle Willis combined with three relievers on an eight-hitter and also hit a three-run homer as the Florida Marlins stretched their winning streak to six games with a 9-0 rout of the Montreal Expos. Facing the Expos for the second time in as many starts, Willis continued his and the Marlins' recent success against Montreal. He allowed four singles in five innings and won for the fourth time in five career decisions vs. the Expos. "There was nothing easy about this game," Willis said. "It was harder." The only negative in the reigning National League Rookie of the Year's outing was his struggles with his command. He tied a career high by issuing four walks and was lifted after throwing 94 pitches. "At first my command wasn't that good," Willis said. "But I came up with the pitches I needed in key situations. It didn't matter (that I came out) after five. That's the manager's decision. I don't get involved in that." Last Thursday at Pro Player Stadium, Willis collected three hits and in this one he also went 3-for-3. He singled in the first inning, led off the fourth with a double and hit his second career homer with two outs in the fifth to give the Marlins an 8-0 advantage. Florida has won 13 of its last 15 games against Montreal and its bullpen has not allowed a run in the last seven contests overall. Former Expos prospect Justin Wayne allowed two hits in two innings and Nate Bump and Matt Perisho tossed an inning apiece. Montreal starter Tomo Ohka (0-2) faced Willis for the second straight start was tagged for five runs - three earned - and eight hits in four innings. "His biggest problem was control," Expos manager Frank Robinson said. "He feeds off the first pitch strike but he couldn't get it going tonight. You could just see it from one hitter to the next." Florida has scored 29 runs during their run and jumped on the Expos early, scoring in the first five innings. Mike Lowell got things going with an RBI single in the first, Hee Seop Choi hit his fourth homer to make it 2-0 in the second, Mike Redmond had a two-run base hit in the third and Luis Castillo added a run-scoring single in the fourth. Willis, who has a career .313 batting average (20-of-64), put the game out of reach by sending reliever Jeremy Fikac's 2-2 pitch over the right field fence. Miguel Cabrera, who homered twice Tuesday, capped the scoring with his major league-leading sixth homer in the eighth. He homered for the fourth straight game, tying the team record set by Kurt Abbott in 1994 and matched by Preston Wilson in 2000. "I wasn't thinking about (the home run) streak," Cabrera said. "I was just looking to get a hit to score some more runs but I hit it good and it went out." Montreal fell to 1-4 in Puerto Rico and has scored just four runs. The Expos have managed just 10 runs in through eight games, the lowest total in team history. "Nothing's happening," Robinson said. "No one's on base, nobody's moving around the bases. (If) you're going to look like that, you're going to look like you're not putting the effort in. How much effort does it take to run down the first base line and turn right?"
