Game 1: Walker’s single in 10th leads Glovers past Thunder 10-9

Jimenez pitches Monkey over Flash

Reigning MVP Larry Walker singled home Ichiro Suzuki in the bottom of the 10th inning to lead the Golden Glovers to a come-from-behind victory over the Rolling Thunder 10-9.

It was an all too familiar scene for the Rolling Thunder as Francisco Rodriguez couldn’t preserve a three-run lead for Randy Johnson. Rodriguez gave up three runs in 1 1/3 innings of relief as the Glovers rallied down 9-6 to send the game into extra innings.

Meanwhile, the Glovers bullpen pitched 5 2/3 innings of shutout ball, allowing just three hits with four strikeouts. Carlos Gonzalez added three hits and four RBI, while Jesse Orosco picked up the win in relief.

Ellis Burks and Mike Piazza each had home runs in the loss, while Randy Johnson took the no decision, going seven innings with seven strikeouts.

In the other game, Alex Rodriguez and Andres Galarraga each hit home runs to lead the Chunky Monkey past the Fort Lauderdale Flash 5-1.

Ubaldo Jimenez came back to hurt his old team, going eight innings with 13 strikeouts for the victory. Greg Maddux went the distance with nine strikeouts to take the loss.
