Game 73: Monkey pound Flash to move one game back of playoffs

Bedard lifts Thunder over Glovers

Crazy season is about to get crazier.

Ron Guidry pitched a complete game with nine strikeouts to lift the Chunky Monkey past the Fort Lauderdale Flash 7-2 and move within one game of second place. Bernie Williams and Eddie Murray both homered in the victory. Wade Boggs went 4 for 4 in the loss for the Flash.

In the other game, Doug Drabek couldn’t make it out of the first inning as the Rolling Thunder beat the Golden Glovers 7-1. Devin Mesoraco had a home run and three RBI, while Brady Anderson and Andruw Jones each had two hits.

Erik Bedard once again proved to be the biggest surprise star in the league striking out 16 on the way to victory.
