Game 30: Bonds’ grand slam leads crazy comeback for Flash

Bagwell helps Thunder beat Glovers

In the battle of awful bullpens… the Flash won or did the Monkey lose?

Barry Bonds hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 11th inning to rally the Fort Lauderdale Flash back down 10-8, leading the Flash to a 12-10 win over the Chunky Monkey.

The Monkey kept taking leads and then blowing them in the bottom of the innings. The final one was after Albert Pujols hit a two-run home run in the top of the 11th to give the Monkey a 10-8, but Jeff Montgomery loaded the bases and John Rocker came in to give it up.

Pujols finished 3 for 5 with two home runs and five RBI, while Manny Ramirez was 3 for 5 with two home runs and four RBI. Bonds was 2 for 6 with five RBI, while Ben Zobrist was 3 for 6 with four RBI for the Flash.

The Flash did have a 6-3 lead earlier in the game, but Lee Smith gave up three runs to blow the save for the Flash.

The Flash, obviously upset with his bullpen, acquired Goose Gossage and Dave Concepcion from the Glovers for Brad Johnson and Jim Fregosi.

In the other game, Jeff Bagwell had a three-run home run and Bobby Doerr and Vinny Castilla each added two hits and two RBI to lead the Rolling Thunder past the Golden Glovers 8-6.

Jose Lima got the win, while Heath Bell pitched 2 2/3 innings to get the save. Kirby Puckett was 4 for 5 with a home run and three RBI in the loss for the Glovers.
