Wood had a MicroLeague record 20 Ks after eight innings and then struck out the side in the 9th to finish with a amazing 23 Ks. Wood also now finishes the season with 215 strikeouts in 113 IP to become the first MicroLeague pitchers to record 200 Ks in a single season.

Fred McGriff was 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBI, while Jake Stenzel added three hits. Jim Palmer took a major beating, giving up seven earned runs — and four home runs — in 1 2/3 innings to take the loss.

In the other game, Jose Marina improved to 11-1 on the season with another typical Jose performance, going 6 1/3 innings, allowing zero earned runs despite giving up seven hits and five walks, as the Monkey beat the Glovers 4-0.

The win also broke the record for most wins in a single season as the Monkey now have 54 victories, breaking the old mark of 53 by the Rolling Thunder.

Jeff Reardon pitched the final 2 2/3 innings for the save. Mr. Geek’s season ends on a losing note as he gave up 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings. Hank Aaron was 3 for 4 with a RBI in the win.
