Game 79: Clark, Hammonds pace Thunder to win over Monkey

McDonald pitches Glovers over Flash

Don’t count the Thunder out of the playoffs just yet!

Will Clark was 2 for 4 with a home run and four RBI, while Jeffrey Hammonds added two hits, a home run and two RBI as the Rolling Thunder pounded Charles Nagy and the Chunky Monkey 9-7.

Steve Garfunkel pitched 5 1/3 innings of relief, allowing just one earned rund with 11 strikeouts to get the win.

Even Alan Wiggins got invovled, going 2 for 4, but failed to get his first RBI of the season. Dave Parker and Milton Bradley each had home runs in the loss.

In the other game, Ben McDonald pitched a complete game, four-hitter, with five strikeouts to lead the Golden Glovers past the Fort Lauderdale Flash 5-1.

Darin Erstad was 3 for 5 with a RBI, while Mark McGwire hit a home run with two RBI.
