Bench helps Flash down Glovers

Andy Benes pitched 11 innings, allowing just three hits with eight strikeouts as the Rolling Thunder ended their losing streak by beating the Chunky Monkey 1-0.

Dale Murphy hit a home run in the top of the 11th inning off Lee Smith for the game’s only run as Stephen Strasburg took the no decision after throwing 10 shutout innings with 12 strikeouts.

In the other game, Johnny Bench hit a home run and Aroldis Chapman pitched four strong innings of relief to get the save as the Fort Lauderdale Flash beat the Golden Glovers 3-2.

Rafael Palmeiro and Tim Wallach each had two hits in the win.
