Game 1: Bullpen woes begin as Flash rally to beat Monkey

Pedro (14 Ks) lifts Thunder over Glovers

The Flash got some revenge on Jose Mesa.

Down 10-8 in the top of the 9th inning, the Flash scored seven runs off John Rocker and Jose Mesa as the Fort Lauderdale Flash beat the Chunky Monkey 15-10 on Opening Day for Season 5.

The Flash actually had a 8-6 lead, but blew it when Danny Graves came in to try to preserve the lead, but with a 10-8 lead the Monkey couldn’t hold it. The Flash loaded the bases when Jose Mesa came in to try to get the save, but all he did was allow all three of Rocker’s runs and three more of his own to blow the game.

Willie Stargell was 2 for 5 with a home run and four RBI, while Ty Cobb and Nomar Garciaparra each had three hits and two RBI in the win.

Greg Maddux did not get off to a great start, giving up eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings, while Sadaharu Oh hit a home run with three RBI, while Jose Canseco added three hits, a home run and two RBI.

Meanwhile, in the other game, Pedro Martinez pitched 10 innings with 14 strikeouts, while Will Clark drove home Willie McGee in the top of the 10th to lead the Rolling Thunder over the Golden Glovers 2-1.

Livan Hernandez took the loss, despite 9 2/3 innings and allowing only two earned runs. Bryce Harper had a home run for the Glovers.

Speedster Leon Durham is off to a hot start, stealing two bases in the first game of the season.
