Game 81: Flash rally past Glovers to move one-game back

Thunder eliminates Monkey from wild-card

Oh boy.

Depending how you look at it, this could be the game that sinks the Glovers or rallies the Flash to close out the season.

Featured imageBip Roberts singled home Hideki Matsui in the top of the 11th inning as the Fort Lauderdale Flash came from behind to beat the Golden Glovers 3-2 and move within one game back of the wild card race.

The Glovers had a 2-0 lead going into the 9th inning, but Kevin Brown gave up back-to-back homers by Dale Murphy and Chris Hoiles to tie the game and eventually send it into extra innings.

John Wetteland picked up the win, allowing just one hit and four strikeouts in three innings, while Dave Righetti took the loss.

Alex Rodriguez and Hanley Ramirez each had home runs for the Glovers, while Miguel Tejada and Roberts had three hits each for the Flash.

In the other game, Greg Maddux improved to 12-1 with a complete game, six hitter to lead the Rolling Thunder past the Chunky Monkey 4-2.

The Monkey’s rough season comes to an end as they have now been eliminated from playoff contention.

Devin Mesoraco had ahome run in the victory. Jose Fernandez took the loss, despite allowing only one earned run with seven strikeouts.
