Anderson’s HR in 9th eliminates Monkey

Bobby Doerr added two hits and a home run for the Thunder.

In what could be a World Series preview with Jose Rijo vs. Roger Clemens, both pitchers got roughed up with Rijo giving up three earned runs in 3 1/3 innings, while Clemens allowed five earned runs in 6 1/3 innings.

In the other game, Brady Anderson hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs as the Fort Lauderdale Flash beat the Chunky Monkey 2-1, and eliminated the Monkey from the playoff race.

It symbolized the Monkey’s season, not getting enough runs and a fantastic performance by Erik Bedard. He was one out away from a complete game shutout, but ended up taking the loss after giving up the game-winning home run.

Lee Smith got the win in relief pitching 3 1/3 innings of shutout ball.
