Spring Training: Monkey score 3 in the 9th to rally past Thunder

Uh oh. Thunder have a bullpen problem.

Ozzie Smith doubled home Joe Mauer in the bottom of the 9th to cap a 3-run inning to lead the Chunky Monkey past the Rolling Thunder 4-3.

Randy Johnson took the no decision going 8 2/3 innings with 11 strikeouts, while Francisco Rodriguez took the loss.

Leading 3-1 in the 9th, Johnson left the game with two outs, but Rodriguez gave up two hits and a walk to lose the game.

Doug Jones pitched 3 2/3 innings of shutout ball to get the win for the Monkey.

Monkey 4, Thunder 3
