WS Game 1: Monkey pound Gooden in 7-4 victory

Barry Larkin and Ken Caminiti each had two hits and two RBI to lead the Chunky Monkey past the Golden Glovers 7-4 in Game 1 of the World Series.

Stephen Strasburg went seven innings, allowing four earned runs, while striking out nine to get the win. Strasburg was cruising with a 5-1 lead behind him until Bret Barberie hit a three-run home run.

Surprisingly Steve Bedrosian came in, not Cy Young winner Brad Lidge. Bedrosian did his job, pitching two shutout innings with three strikeouts for the save.

Dwight Gooden had a rough outing, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and four walks to take the loss.
