On August 21, 1993, he had a nightmarish start against the Montreal Expos. He began the 1st inning by walking Marquis Grissom, then threw a wild pitch before walking Randy Ready. He then loaded the bases by walking John Vander Wal as well, and the fourth batter of the game, Larry Walker, followed with a grand slam. After settling down a bit, he gave up a solo homer to Grissom in the 2nd and ended up losing the game, 6-3.
