Lenny Harris Ties Pinch-Hit Record
NEW YORK (AP) _ Lenny Harris tied the major league record for career pinch hits with a fifth-inning single for the New York Mets against the Montreal Expos on Friday night.
Harris, batting for relief pitcher Mark Corey, slapped a single to right off the Expos Mark Thurman on a 1-0 pitch for his 150th career pinch hit _ matching the record set by Manny Mota.
Harris is 20-for-82 as a pinch hitter this season with no homers and eight RBIs. The 82 at-bats as a pinch hitter break the record set by Rusty Staub of the Mets in 1983.
