On October 3, 2004 – The final game in Montreal Expos team history is played away from home, against the New York Mets at Shea Stadium. New York defeats Montreal, 8 – 1. Jamey Carroll scores the final Expos run and Endy Chavez becomes the final Expos batter when he grounds out in the top of the 9th to end the game. Ironically, it was at Shea Stadium that the Expos played their first ever game in 1969. Their finale, which turns out to be the rubber match of the franchise series with New York, gives the Met’s a 299-298 advantage in the 597 contests played since 1969.
