Expos Battle Back, Blast Cubs


Miles, Bruce, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Byline: Bruce Miles Daily Herald Sports Writer

MONTREAL - The good news for the Cubs on Wednesday night was that they finally scored a run in the first inning of a game this year.

"You don't want to look in September, wishing you had four or five games back that you could have won. I said that after the first week of the season.

"There's lots of baseball left. I said before on the road trip that it's a matter of not panicking or anything like that or playing too reckless. I think there should be a sense of urgency without going out there and pressing and trying to do too much. Whether it's intensity or what, tonight we (get) a 6-run lead, and that game should be over. …
