Phils outlast Expos, 7-5


MONTREAL (AP) – Keith Moreland belted a grand slam and Pete Rose added a two-run homer in a seven-run fourth inning that carried the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-5 triumph over the Montreal Expos last night. 


The Phillies had been held hitless by Montreal starter Bill Gullickson, 0-2, until Manny Trillo opened the fourth with a single. Bake McBride followed with a double into the right field corner and after Greg Luzinski walked, Moreland hammered the first pitch from Gullickson into the left field bleachers for his second homer of the year. 


Ramon Aviles continued the assault against Gullickson with a single to center and John Vuckovich tripled off the glove of center fielder Andre Dawson. One out later, Rose cracked his first homer of the season to cap the seven-run explosion, which matched the Phillies' biggest inning of the season. 


Philadelphia starter Dickie Noles, 1-3, yielded a run in the fourth inning when Warren Cromartie tripled and scored on an infield out by Larry Parrish. 


The Expos scored three runs in the sixth on a run-scoring double by Rowland Office and a two-run single by Rodney Scott, then got their final run in the eighth on a triple by Office and a pinch-single by Jerry White.


Ron Reed pitched the final three innings to post his fourth save.
