Enjoys three hit game
May 30, 1969 Montreal:  In the first series between the two newest members of the National league the Padres overcome a 2-0 deficient with a six run outburst in the top of the sixth.  San Diego banged out five consecutive singles with the big blow being a two run single by Roberto Pena.  Catcher Chris Cannizzaro known more for the intangibles he brings behind the plate had three of the Padres 16 hits.

San Diego added three solo homers in the 9th as Nate Colbert and Ollie Brown went back-to-back and Cito Gaston went deep one out later.

Rusty Staub paced the Expos offense with two hits and three RBI.  Mack Jones hit his 10th home run of the season.

Southpaw Dick Kelly (2-3) hurled six innings of two run ball to pick up the win.  Montreal starter Mike Wegener (1-4) suffered the defeat.  Wegener allowed nine hits and six of the runs in five and one third innings.
