Game 74: Pujols (8 RBI), Chunky Monkey pound Flash 21-4

Walker leads Glovers over Thunder

Wowzers!

Albert Pujols had two hits, a home run and eight RBI to lead the Chunky Monkey’s 21-4 beatdown of the Fort Lauderdale Flash.

Victor Martinez and Jose Bautista each added three hits, while Dante Bichette had three RBI. Roy Halladay’s continues his good season, pitching a complete game with 10 strikeouts.

Kevin Ritz’s dreadful season continues, taking the loss after giving up five earned runs on six walks and three hits in two innings. Not sure how Ritz keeps pitching as he now has a 10.21 ERA in 14 starts. He has only pitched 54 innings, which is an average of less than four innings per start.

On one positive, Ken Griffey set a record with most RBI in a season with 81 after going 3 for 4 with a home run and three RBI. He now has 29 home runs and is just three away from tying the record for most in a season with 32 (Bonds, Season 1).

In the other game, Larry Walker was 2 for 6 with two home runs and three RBI, including a two-run shot in the bottom of the 11th inning to lead the Golden Glovers past the Rolling Thunder 6-4.

Huston Street picked up the win, after going four innings of relief, while Francisco Rodriguez took the loss.
