WEB GEMS- Bot 2nd: Jorge Posada blocked the plate, saving a run!

Left fielder Barry Bonds went deep and had 3 RBI as the Skokie Wolfmen
outscored the Indiana Redbirds 10 to 6.

Skokie started with a bang, jumping out to an early lead in their half of the
first scoring 3 runners on 5 hits. The key at-bat was by Bonds who made the
home-town crowd a happy bunch when he lost the ball over the fence for three
runs (his 4th of the season). Indiana scored in 5 different innings, but
their shaky pitching kept them from victory.

The win was credited to Tim Hudson(3-1) who went 5 and 1/3 innings allowing 4
runs. Joe Nathan earned his 4th save. Scott Kazmir(1-4) ended up with the
loss. He was knocked around by Skokie, allowing 13 hits and 5 walks in 5
innings.

Barry Bonds slammed 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI as the Skokie Wolfmen beat the
Indiana Redbirds by a score of 9 to 6.

The Indiana fans didn't appreciate the big day Bonds had. He blasted a solo
shot in the 4th inning and smacked a three-run homer (his 7th of the season)
in the 5th inning. Indiana threatened in the 9th but their rally came up
short.

The victory was credited to Tim Hudson(4-1) who went 8 and 2/3 innings,
allowing 6 runs. George Sherrill was credited with his 1st save. Casey
Janssen(1-1) took the loss in relief.

Albert Pujols blasted a homerun and had 3 RBI and Roy Oswalt tossed a complete
game as the Indiana Redbirds man-handled the Skokie Wolfmen - the final score
was 12 to 2.

Pujols had a big evening at the plate. He doubled in the 3rd inning, bombed a
two-run dinger (his 4th of the season) in the 6th inning and lined a one-base
hit resulting in a run in the 8th inning. The Indiana offense was great,
scoring in 7 of the 9 innings.

The winning pitcher was Oswalt(5-1) who allowed 2 runs for the game. Ted
Lilly(3-2) was the loser. He gave up 5 runs in 3 and 2/3 innings of work.
