Witt received a World Series ring with the Monkey last season, but never got to pitch becoming the only player all season that didn’t play. He had been waiting for this moment ever since being drafted by the Glovers.

Andre Dawson and Raul Mondesi each had home runs in the win, while Ben Zobrist and Darren Daulton each had a HR in the loss for the Monkey.

In the other game, Jeff Bagwell was 3 for 4 with two home runs and four RBI to lead the Rolling Thunder past the Fort Lauderdale Flash 10-8.

Adam Dunn also added a home run and two RBI, while Bruce Sutter pitched eight innings to get the win. Kris Benson couldn’t get out of the first inning, giving up three earned runs on four hits in 2/3 innings.

George Foster was 2 for 5 with a home run and three RBI, while Kevin Mitchell was 2 for 3 with a home run and three RBI in the loss.
