Game 2: Betances’ strong outing helps Thunder down Flash 3-2

Zobrist hurts former team; lifts Glovers

Garf didn’t know who Dellin Betances was before the draft, but I bet he knows him now.

Betances pitched four shutout innings with eight strikeouts to get the win and help the Rolling Thunder beat the Fort Lauderdale Flash 3-2.

Mike Napoli had a home run, while Todd Helton also added a RBI. Babe Ruth took the loss, despite allowing only one earned run in eight innings. Ernie Banks and Keith Hernandez each had a home run in the loss.

In the other game, Ben Zobrist hit a two-run home run in the 8th inning to lift the Golden Glovers past the Chunky Monkey 5-4.

Frank Thomas also added a home run, while Dan Plesac pitched 3 1/3 innings of hitless ball with five strikeouts to get the win. Jason Kendall and Julio Franco each had two hits and two RBI in the loss.
