Game 61: Monkey rally for four in 9th to beat Thunder 8-7

Sabathia lifts Glovers into first place

On #FreeZane Day, the Monkey made sure he didn’t go home a loser.

Jeff Kent and Jose Canseco each had two hits and two RBI to rally the Chunky Monkey to a 4-run 9th inning and beat the Rolling Thunder 8-7.

Smith got the no decision in his first start of the season, giving up five earned runs in five innings, but the Monkey drilled Lee Smith for five earned runs — including four in the top of the 9th — for the win.

It looked like Hideki Irabu would finally give the Thunder a win from the 3-4-5 spot, but the bullpen let him down. Yogi Berra did have three hits, a home run and three RBI in the loss.

In the other game, C.C. Sabathia pitched a complete game, six-hitter with five strikeouts to lead the Golden Glovers over the Fort Lauderdale Flash 3-2 as the Glovers have won six in a row to move into first place.

Miguel Cabrera had two hits and a RBI in the victory.
