Game 31: Puckett’s 2-run HR in 15th leads Glovers over Flash

Monkey rally past Thunder

Kirby Puckett hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the 15th inning to lead the Golden Glovers past the Fort Lauderdale Flash 10-8.

The Flash couldn’t hold on to the lead with its bullpen as Lee Smith and Randy Myers both gave up runs, allowing the Glovers to send it to extra innings.

Jose Marina pitched a gem in relief, going 8 1/3, allowing just three hits and zero earned runs. Todd Helton had four hits, while Puckett and Rickie Weeks each had three hits and three RBI. David Wright had four RBI and Barry Bonds had three hits for the Flash.

In the other game, more bad relief pitching was on display as Heath Bell and Mr. Geek couldn’t preserve the lead, giving up three earned runs as the Chunky Monkey rallied past the Rolling Thunder 8-7.

Manny Ramirez and Ron Santo each had three hits, a home run and two RBI, while Albert Pujols added two hits and two RBI in the win. Francisco Rodriguez got the win in relief, going 4 1/3 innings, allowing just one hit with six strikeouts. David Ortiz was 3 for 5 with a home run and four RBI in the loss.
