Game 82: Downing, Vaughn go back-to-back to lead Flash 7-6

Flash have two-game lead with two to go

Brian Downing hit a three-run home run off Ramon Martinez to tie the game, followed by Greg Vaughn’s solo home run off Jonathan Broxton on the next pitch to lead the Fort Lauderdale Flash over the Chunky Monkey 7-6.

The Flash are now one win away from the making the World Series and at worst would be in a one-game playoff.

I’ve lost count how many one-run losses that is for the Monkey or how many bullpen losses that is, but both numbers are close to 20. Bobby Jenks picked up the win in relief, going 3 2/3 innings of shutout ball, while Broxon again takes the loss.

Miguel Cabrera had two hits and two RBI for the Flash, while Bradon Anderson and B.J. Upton each had two hits and two RBI for the Monkey.

In the other game, Kevin Maas hit two home runs with four RBI, while Carl Edwards made his case for the Cy Young award by pitching 7 2/3 innings of one-hit ball with 10 strikeouts to lead the Golden Glovers past the Rolling Thunder 8-7.

Luis Gonzalez added three hits and a RBI in the win. Chipper Jones had a three-run home run for the Thunder.
