Game 36: Gossage, Durham lead Thunder past Monkey in 14 inn.

Nomar helps Flash move into first place

Put that down as one of the epic performances by a reliever in this league’s history.

Goose Gossage pitched 5 2/3 innings of relief, allowing only one hit, one walk and striking out 10 to help the Rolling Thunder get by the Chunky Monkey 9-4 in 14 innings.

Leon Durham was 4 for 7 with three RBI as the Thunder scored five runs in the top of the 14th to beat the Monkey.

Jose Mesa took the loss and falls to 0-5 on the season, while Sadarahu Oh hit his league-leading 16th homer.

In the other game, Nomar Garciaparra was 2 for 5 with three RBI, while Mike Lowell drove in the game-winning hit in the bottom of the 9th as the Fort Lauderdale Flash beat the Golden Glovers 6-5 and move into sole possession of first place.

Danny Graves picked up the win, while Aroldis Chapman earned the loss.

Brad Johnson picked up two more hits and is now hitting .406 as the backup catcher.
