pitched six strong innings and
added run-scoring doubles for the Expos, who have won the first two games of the three-game series.
A 26-year-old outfielder in his second full major league season, Wilkerson reached on a bunt single in the second inning, doubled in the fifth, tripled in the sixth and hit a two-run homer in the seventh.
"I did it before (in the minor leagues), but it's nothing like doing it in the big leagues," Wilkerson said. "You dream about getting four hits in a game, but getting the cycle is just something to be proud of."
Wilkerson, who tied a career high with four RBI, became the first major leaguer to hit for the cycle since
for Arizona last September 18 against San Diego.
"'Le Carrousel,' the cycle, I like that," Montreal manager
said. "That's just a tremendous achievement. He really stepped up today and got some very big hits. The home run was the margin that gave us the chance to go out and fool around a little on defense."
Ohka (6-7) allowed one run and four hits and has won consecutive decisions for the first time this season.
Four relievers followed, with
working the ninth for his 21st save. Biddle allowed the second of two RBI singles by
Jeff D'Amico (5-8) lost to the Expos for the first time in four career decisions, allowing two runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings.
The Pirates were beaten for just the third time in nine games, but that did not prevent an expletive-laced tirade by manager
"My starter did fine. He deserved to win the (bleeping) game. We didn't (bleeping) execute, we were (crap) in every facet, every (bleeping) facet of the game. You want to know the (bleeping) reason, you go out there and ask the players. I don't have the (bleeping) reasons. Sometimes the onus is gotta be on them. I don't plan on changing (anything), the players we got are the players we got and they'll be out there tomorrow."
"The loss is next to my name, so put it on me," D'Amico said.
The Pirates opened the scoring in the sixth on an RBI single by Kendall before the Expos scored three times in the bottom of the inning and three times in the seventh to take a 6-1 lead.
