Game 84: Monkey, Flash both lose to force one-game playoff

Carter’s HR in 16th lifts Glovers past Flash

And we are tied.

Gary Carter hit a home run in the top of the 16th inning to lift the Golden Glovers over the Fort Lauderdale Flash 4-3, while Randy Johnson pitched a complete game with 15 strikeouts to lead the Rolling Thunder over the Chunky Monkey 3-1, forcing the two teams into a one-game playoff to reach the World Series.

The Flash and Monkey are both 42-42, but the Monkey hold a 14-13 advantage in their 27-game set, so Jose will be the home team and we will use the DH.

The Glovers bullpen basically won the game against the Flash, pitching eight innings of shutout ball, allowing one hit with 12 strikeouts. Jeff Francis had 15 strikeouts in eight innings, meaning the Flash struck out 27 times.

Larry Walker added two hits, a home run and two RBI, while Ben Zobrist was 4 for 7 with a home run and two RBI.

In the other game, Johnson was in complete control, while the Thunder got two RBI from Craig Counsell.

Glovers 4, Flash 3 (16 innings)
