Game Story

MONTREAL (Ticker) -- Tomo Ohka took matters into his own hands. A victim of poor run support, Ohka combined with Rocky Biddle on a three-hitter as the Montreal Expos blanked the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-0, for their first three-game winning streak of the season. Ohka (1-5) allowed three hits in eight innings with a walk and six strikeouts before Biddle tossed a perfect ninth for his seventh save. "We didn't really give him a lot of run support again, but it was enough and I'm glad he got the first win," Expos catcher Brian Schneider said. Jose Vidro drove in both runs for Montreal with an RBI double in the third and a solo home run in the fifth. "The main thing is I helped my team get a win out there and Ohka did an unbelievable job," Vidro said. "He was really on top of his game." Ohka avoided becoming the first Montreal pitcher to start 0-6 since Ray Burris in 1982. In Ohka's previous five starts, however, the Expos scored only two runs. They were shut out three times and managed one run in his other two outings. "He just kept the hitters off balance all night long and I couldn't ask for anything better after the game he gave me tonight," Montreal manager Frank Robinson said. Ohka gave up a double to Albert Pujols in the fourth and singles by Hector Luna in the fifth and eighth. St. Louis did not get a runner past second. "He was mixing pitches up and down," Pujols said. "We just need to come back tomorrow and try to win a game." Montreal rookie Terrmel Sledge went 2-for-3, extending his hitting streak to 10 games. He is batting .533 (16-for-30) during the streak, which followed a 1-for-34 start to the season. "The better feeling is we're winning," Sledge said. "The streak comes with it, but I'm up here having fun. I just love winning. We're in a groove right now. The atmosphere in the clubhouse is great." Jason Marquis (1-3) took the loss, yielding two runs and seven hits in seven innings. The Expos broke on top in the third as Endy Chavez reached on a bunt single to start the inning and scored on Vidro's double to deep center field. "I had struggles early on with my mechanics," Marquis said. "It took me to about the third inning today, maybe the fourth inning until I felt comfortable."
