Game 70: McGee’s 3-run HR in 10th lifts Thunder to wild win

Cobb helps Flash down Glovers

Where to begin?!?!

Let’s just say this… Greg Maddux left the game with a 7-3 lead in the 7th and it took a Willie McGee three-run home run in the top of the 10th to lead the Rolling Thunder over the Chunky Monkey 14-11.

Heathcliff Slocumb was the first to blow the lead as the Thunder took advantage of Lenny Dykstra’s error, to tie the game at 7-7. But then it was Shigetoshi Hasegawa’s chance to give up some runs, along with six walks as the Monkey took a 9-7 lead.

The Thunder stormed back and took an 11-9 lead thanks to John Rocker’s two hits and three walks, which also included Paul Molitor’s bases-loaded double.

Enter Lee Smith for the save… and the blown save — as the Monkey scored twice to tie thanks to a two-run shot by Roy Campanella, who finished with two home runs and five RBI.

But Antonio Alfonseca couldn’t do his job either as he gave up a three-run shot to McGee and ended up taking the loss.

Whew.

In the other game, Ty Cobb was 2 for 4 with a triple and three RBI to lead the Fort Lauderdale Flash over the Golden Glovers 6-1.

Teddy Higuera pitched a complete game, allowing just five hits and zero earned runs with eight strikeouts to get the win.
