Toy Cannon goes off!

May 13, 1969 Montreal:  Astros' centerfielder Jimmy Wynn mauled Expo pitching to the tune of 3 home runs and 9 RBI in Houston's 13-4 win.  The Expos took an early lead with a run in the bottom of the first.  The Astros then put up six in the top of the second and never looked back.  Norm Miller added two base knocks and 2 RBI for Houston.
3 HRs with 9 RBI

Tom Griffin (5-0) went seven innings for Houston to pick up the win.  The right hander allowed only two runs on five hits with four walks and seven strikeouts.  Mike Wegener (1-2) suffered the setback.
