MONTREAL, May 25 (UPI) -- Brian Schneider snapped a seventh-inning tie with a three-run homer and Javier Vazquez won for the fourth time in five decisions Sunday as the Montreal Expos posted a 5-3 triumph over the Philadelphia Phillies.
The lefthanded hitting Schneider came into the game hitting just .234 with four homers and 10 RBI in 77 at bats but was batting .333 from the seventh inning on. Among those eight late hits were a 10th inning home run that won a game on April 18 and an RBI infield single that was the difference in a game 11 days later.
On Sunday, he snapped a 2-2 tie with a three-run shot to right field against Philadelphia reliever Dan Plesac. Schneider has three home runs in 13 at-bats against lefthanders this season.
Vazquez (5-2) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings. He walked one and struck out eight in improving to 8-3 lifetime against the Phillies. Scott Stewart and Luis Ayala combined to get through the eighth and Rocky Biddle worked around a single in the ninth to notch his 14th save.
Philadelphia starter Brett Myers (4-4) allowed four runs in 6 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out five but was pulled in favor of Plesac with Schneider coming to the plate in the seventh.
