While the absence of Mariner ace Randy Johnson threatened to hang a negative cloud over the JetHawks on Friday, there was some unexpected good news regarding outfielder Shane Monahan. The first X-rays of Monahan's right wrist showed there was an 80% probability that it was broken, and he probably would be out for the rest of the regular season. But about 5 p.m. Friday, the longshot came in for Monahan and the JetHawks, when an examination showed that Monahan's wrist was only sprained.

Jason Cook sat alone on the bench, not quite knowing the full significance of one errant throw. The JetHawk third baseman knew his errant throw allowed the winning run to score for the San Bernardino Stampede in the 10th inning of a 5-4 loss before 4,473 on Friday night at the Ranch. He had to be told that the loss eliminated the JetHawks from possible postseason play because the High Desert Mavericks and Lake Elsinore Storm won, pushing Lancaster three games back with two to play.

Shane Monahan let all the frustration out Wednesday night in a fist-pumping, arm-waving display. Monahan, a JetHawk outfielder, had just lined a two-run single up the middle in the eighth inning, tying the game the JetHawks eventually won. After the game, Monahan had no apologies for the show he put on while standing at first base. "I've been in a slump and it's been a while since I've helped the team do anything," Monahan said.

Shane Monahan is irony in spikes. The JetHawk outfielder's biggest strength and his biggest weakness are the same thing--his intensity. On one hand, it drives him full speed toward an almost inevitable spot in the major leagues. But it also drives teammates and managers crazy. Monahan plays angry, and you can't argue with the results so far.

Going hitless in 15 at-bats doesn't bother Shane Monahan. Answering questions about it does. The Lancaster JetHawk outfielder, who explained before Tuesday night's game that he was simply unlucky during his brief skid, turned his fortunes around a few hours later, going three for four--and missing the cycle by a double.

After striking out in his first three at-bats Monday night, Scott Smith joined the offensive explosion in the sixth inning by hitting the JetHawks' first grand slam of the season in a 15-2 victory over the Lake Elsinore Storm before 3,135 at the Hangar. Catcher Scot Sealy, still hobbled from taking a foul tip off his toe last week, added four hits, including a two-run home run. Jesus Marquez added a solo homer, his team-leading 13th, and a double to extend his hitting streak to 13 games.

The JetHawks, unable to hold a three-run lead Saturday night, lost their third game in a row as Jesus Ibarra's ninth-inning home run lifted the San Jose Giants to a 6-5 victory before 2,487 at Municipal Stadium. Ibarra, who had been hitless in three at-bats while striking out twice, broke a 5-5 tie with his 15th homer with one out and nobody on against reliever John Thompson (1-6). The JetHawks (17-20) started quickly with three runs in the second, keyed by Shane Monahan's two-run single.
