Game 81: Monkey hold off Thunder 14-13; Maddux lifts Flash

Monkey, Flash tied with three to go

Only Jose can take a 9-0 lead, blow it, and win in extras.

Ladies and gentleman, your Chunky Monkey squad!

Victor Martinez went 3 for 5 with two home runs and three RBI, while Alex Rodriguez and Barry Bonds each added home runs to lead the Chunky Monkey past the Rolling Thunder 14-13 in 10 innings.

The Monkey jumped out to a 9-0 lead, highlighted by Carlos Marmol’s five walks in one inning of work, which resulted in five runs.

Meanwhile, Roy Halladay is who we thought he was as he gave up seven earned runs on 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings. The Thunder mounded the comeback thanks to Mitch Williams, who also gave up five earned runs and five walks, but for him it was 1 2/3 of an inning.

The Flash stayed even with the Monkey as Greg Maddux pitched a complete game, winning his 12th game of the season, allowing three earned runs with four strikeouts in a 9-3 win over the Golden Glovers.

Todd Helton had a three-run home run, while Troy Tulowitzki added two hits, a home run and two RBI.

Bob Welch, who was showcasing himself to be the No. 1 starter in the World Series, gave up four earned runs in three innings to take the loss.
