Game 56: Flash rally in 9th, win in 11th against Monkey

Rijo’s 12 Ks lead Glovers over Thunder

Oh that pesky bullpen.

Vinny Castilla singled home Ryne Sandberg in the top of the 11th inning to cap a big comeback and lift the Fort Lauderdale Flash over the Chunky Monkey 7-6 in 11 innings.

The Monkey had a 5-1 lead, heading into the 9th inning, but after Jennings loaded the bases with one out, Mitch Williams came on to try to preserve the victory.

Well, we all knew how that was going to turn out. Williams gave up two hits and a walk, allowing three of Jennings runs to score and one of his, allowing the Flash to take a 6-5 lead.

But Barry Bonds got the best of Dennis Eckersley… AGAIN, hitting a home run to push the game to extra innings, where the Flash eventually won the game off John Franco.

Flash 7, Monkey 6 (11 innings)
