Game 6: Cabrera, Harper pound Monkey as Glovers finish sweep

J. Robinson helps Thunder beat Flash

The defending champions would like to talk to you all about those “preseason predictions” about the Chunky Monkey.

Miguel Cabrera had a home run and four RBI, while Bryce Harper added a home run and three RBI as the Golden Glovers pounded the Chunky Monkey 11-2 and sweep the three-game series.

Roy Halladay didn’t make it out of the first inning, giving up four earned runs in 2/3 of an inning. He now has two starts on the year with one full inning, eight hits and a 38.67 ERA.

John Rocker put together an amazing line with eight walks and nine strikeouts and now has 19 walks and 31 strikeouts in 16 innings this season.

David Wells got the win, going the distance, allowing only six hits and striking out six.

In the other game, Jackie Robinson’s two-RBI triple in the top of the 10th inning helped the Rolling Thunder get past the Fort Lauderdale Flash 9-6.

The Flash actually had the lead in the 9th, but Danny Graves couldn’t close it out as the Thunder tied it. The bullpen became important again as the Thunder’s pen is the best in the league, holding the Flash two one hit in the final two innings, while Lee Smith got the win and Goose Gossage got the save.

Paul Molitor had three hits, a home run and three RBI, while Will Clark finally broke out with three hits. Mike Lowell and Moises Alou each had a home run and three RBI in the loss.
