The teams used 15 pitchers to set a major league record, with St. Louis using eight. The previous record of 14 had been achieved five times. "I thought I used 15 all by myself," Cardinals manager Joe Torre said. The Reds had 19 hits and the Cardinals 17, with Gregg Jefferies getting four singles. St. Louis scored seven runs in the eighth, then failed to hold a 13-9 lead. The Reds scored three in the eighth and won it in the ninth on Sanders' misplayed hit off Todd Burns. "I don't remember the last time we had a four-run lead," Torre said. "It was eons ago. You'd think it would be enough with two innings left." Jacob Brumfield doubled with one out in the ninth off Mike Perez and Rob Murphy (3-6) walked Hal Morris before Burns relieved. Sanders hit a liner to center that bounced past Mark Whiten and rolled to the wall. Palm Beach Gardens' Jeff Reardon (4-5) pitched the ninth to get the victory. B EXPOS 4, ROCKIES 3: With one out, Darrin Fletcher singled off Mike Munoz. Marcus Moore (2-1) relieved and gave up a single to Wil Cordero and walked Randy Ready. Mike Lansing singled home Fletcher before reliever Steve Reed walked pinch-hitter Rondell White, forcing in Cordero. Lou Frazier's sacrifice fly tied the game and then Montoyo, promoted from Class AAA Ottawa earlier in the day, singled in Lansing for the winning run. "The first impression you make is always important and this one was great," Montoyo said. B CUBS 5, PHILLIES 4: Jose Guzman snapped his three-game losing streak, and Rick Wilkins homered and drove in two runs as Chicago beat Philadelphia at Veterans Stadium for its fifth straight victory. Guzman (12-10) went Th innings, allowing 10 hits, striking out nine and walking one. His last victory came Aug. 17 against Montreal. "This is my first year in the NL and I'm still learning about the hitters and the ballparks," Guzman said. "I need more time. I'm just beginning to feel comfortable." Phillies starter Ben Rivera (12-8) gave up all five Chicago runs on six hits in four innings. He shut out the Cubs seven days ago in Chicago. B ASTROS 4, METS 3 (10): Jeff Kent's throwing error trying to complete a double play in the 10th inning allowed the winning run to score as Houston defeated New York at the Astrodome.
