MONTREAL — The Montreal Expos found yet another way to win Wednesday night.
Milwaukee rookie center fielder Alex Sanchez dropped Jose Vidro's two-out liner in the bottom of the 15th inning to allow the winning run to score, giving the Expos a 5-4 victory.
"He catches that ball 99 times out of 100," Brewer right fielder Jeffrey Hammonds said. "Tonight was that one."
The Expos won their fifth in a row and opened a two-game lead in the NL East.
"I feel good and I didn't do anything tonight," Expo Manager Frank Robinson said.
After each team scored in the 12th, Mike Mordecai led off the Montreal 15th with a double against Jose Cabrera (1-3). Brad Wilkerson bunted Mordecai to third and pinch-hitter Michael Barrett was walked intentionally.
Barrett took second on defensive indifference before Peter Bergeron struck out for the second out.
Vidro followed with a liner, and Sanchez ran in to make the catch, but the ball glanced off his glove and dropped behind him for an error as Mordecai crossed the plate.
