Game 81: Taubensee’s HR lifts Monkey; Glovers clinch playoff

Murray does it again for Thunder

The Glovers love Eddie Taubensee.

Taubensee hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the 9th to lift the Chunky Monkey over the Fort Lauderdale Flash 4-2 and in turn, allow the Glovers to clinch a playoff spot.

Stephen Strasburg made his final case for Cy Young, pitching a complete game with 13 strikeouts.

Meanwhile, in the other game, Eddie Murray was 2 for 5 with a home run and five RBI to lift the Rolling Thunder past the Golden Glovers 13-4.

Jim Edmonds and Derek Jeter each added four hits, while Frank Tanana got the win, going five innings. Roger Clemens took a beating, giving up five earned runs in 1 2/3 innings to take the loss. Darin Darst was 3 for 4 with two RBI.
