AP Laser Wire Photos

Here are more of the photos sent from Al in Ontario

 June 27, 1989: Tim Wallach drove in the winning run with a single in the bottom of the 14th inning in this game to lead the Expos to a 3-2 win over the Mets.  Wallach went 2 for 3 and also had 4 walks in the game.

June 27, 1989: The Expos beat the Mets 4-3, with Wallach going 2 for 3 with 2 RBI's a double and a walk.  The picture shows a blown call by the umpire.

June 28, 1989: From the same game as above

July 13, 1989: Wallach went 2 for 4 with a home run to lead the Expos to a 6-3 win over the Reds.

July 14, 1989: The Expos beat the Reds 1-0 in this game.  Wallach scored the games only run in the top of the 2nd inning.  He led off the inning with a walk, advanced to 2nd on a Damasio Garcia single, then took 3rd on a Mike Fitzgerald line out (pictured above).  Wallach then scored on a Spike Owen infield ground out.  Bryn Smith threw 8 1/3 scoreless for the Expos.

This is one of my favorite pictures included in the lot.  Wallach was never known for his base running, so it's sort of cool to see an action shot on the base paths like this.  Even cooler when the context of the game is known.  Umpire John McSherry looks like a giant in this picture.
