Game 2 with the Angels leading 1-0 features a pitching matchup of Bill Gullickson (14-12 3.52 Grade 8Z) for the Expos and Don Sutton (15-10 Grade 7Z) for the Angels.
The Expos once again would come out of the gate with 2 runs in the first. This time Hubie Brooks triples in a run and Terry Francona drives in Brooks. They would add 3 more in the 2nd. Tim Raines with an RBI and Andre Dawson with a 2 run double. The Angels would add single runs in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th to make the game 5-3 Expos after 5.
The score would remain 5-3 until 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth and Jeff Reardon on the hill. Reggie Jackson would single and then Doug DeCinces would line a 2 run homer to center to tie the game. The great Angel comeback would be for naught though as the Expos would get a run in the top of the 10th via Hubie Brooks homer. This time Reardon would get them out in the bottom half and we are now tied in the series 1-1.
