Game 71: Glovers pound Ballard behind Green’s grand slam

Monkey downs Flash in 13 innings

The Jeff Ballard love affair is over.

Shawn Green hit a grand slam in the first inning, while Frank Thomas added three hits as the Golden Glovers pounded Ballard and the Rolling Thunder 6-3.

Ballard gave up five earned runs on four hits in 2/3 innings to take the loss, while the legend of Harvey Haddix grows as he pitched 8 1/3 innings, allowing zero earned runs with eight strikeouts. Rick Sutcliffe got the win, while Eddie Murray was 4 for 4 with a home run and two RBI.

In the other game, Dave Winfield had two RBI while the Chunky Monkey took advantage of 11 walks to beat the Fort Lauderdale Flash 5-3 in 13 innings.

The Monkey bullpen came to play, pitching seven shutout innings after Stephen Strasburg went six with 10 strikeouts. Carlos Marmol had a rough 13th, giving up two earned runs on three walks. Ken Griffey was 2 for 6 with a home run and two RBI.
