Jerry Goff shares the modern record for most passed balls in one game (6) with Geno Petralli and Rube Vickers; it came in his final major league game, with the Houston Astros against his former team, the Montreal Expos, on May 12, 1996. He also hit a homer off Expos starter Ugueth Urbina in that game.
His first major league homer came in spectacular fashion: on June 26, 1990, playing for the Montreal Expos, he pinch-hit for Dave Schmidt to lead off the top of the 9th against Chicago Cubs closer Les Lancaster at Wrigley Field and homered to put the Expos ahead, 6-5, which was also the game’s final score.
