Game 64: Flash rallies twice vs. Monkey’s bullpen to win 6-5

Guzman (12 Ks) lifts Thunder over Glovers

The Chunky Monkey bullpen was summed up in one game.

The Fort Lauderdale Flash rallied down 4-1 in the 8th to tie the game and then again down 5-4 in the 9th to win the game.

Dante Bichette was 2 for 5 with three RBI, including the game-winner in the ninth as the Flash beat the Chunky Monkey 6-5.

Ryan Dempster came on in the 8th to try and preserve a three-run lead, but gave up three hits and three runs, while not being able to record an out. Dempster now has a 11.27 ERA in 30 innings pitched.

The Monkey then took the lead in the top of the 9th inning, but Jose Mesa ended up giving up two earned runs and three hits in 1/3 of an inning to take the loss. Dave Weathers actually came in with the bases loaded, but allowed Mesa’s runners.

In the other game, Jose Guzman pitched a complete-game shutout with 12 strikeouts to lead the Rolling Thunder past the Golden Glovers 1-0.

Eddie Murray singled home Barry Bonds for the game’s only run, which happened to be unearned thanks to a Mark Lemke error. Jose Rijo got the loss, despite going 7 1/3 innings with zero earned runs.
