Spring Training: Palmer does it again as Glovers beat Flash

Sheffield, Monkey pound Thunder

The Glovers might no repeat as World Series Champions, but at least he found his best starter… one of the last picks of the draft!

Jim Palmer pitched his second complete game of the spring, allowing eight hits with two walks and two strikeouts to lead the Golden Glovers over the Fort Lauderdale Flash 4-2.

Chris Sabo and Barry Bonds each had two hits, while Juan Samuel added two RBI.

Dontrelle Willis got the loss, giving up four earned runs in five innings and might not make the starting rotation.

In the other game, Gary Sheffield went 4 for 5 with a home run and three RBI out of the leadoff spot to lead the Chunky Monkey over the Rolling Thunder 9-7.

Carlos Delgado and Daryl Strawberry each had two hits, a home run and two RBI.

Antonio Alfonseca actually got the win, after Daisuke Matsuzaka gave up four runs (all unearned) in 1 2/3 innings. J.R. Richard struggled, allowing seven hits and two earned runs in 1 2/3 innings, while Shigetoshi Hasegawa took the loss — and a major beating — fiving up six hits, six walks and seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings.

Yogi Berra was 4 for 4 with two home runs and three RBI in the loss.
