May 10, 1984: Frank Pastore two hits the Montreal Expos for a 2-1 win at Olympic Stadium. The only Montreal hits were singles by Bryan Little in the 4th inning and Tim Raines in the 7th.
Pastore suffered through an awful season in 1984, with a 3-8 record and a 6.50 ERA. After his 13-7 record in 1980, Pastore was 24-42 from ’81-’84. He was accused of thinking too much on the mound and being obsessed with his pitching mechanics. Teammates called him “Mr. Goodwrench”.
