Game 23 Recap: Wojton gives 100%. Ducks 5, Bombers 4

NABA, pittsburgh NABA, South Oakland Ducks Baseball
The South Oakland Ducks (15-8) had their hopes of a 1st round bye all but eliminated on Saturday night, and entered their final home game against the six-win Bombers with little to play for.
Despite the dramatic nature of the Ducks win, in which Chris Wojton drove in the game winning run in the bottom of the seventh with a walk off bases loaded single to break the 4-4 tie, the post game reaction was somewhat subdued.

This was a trap game if ever one existed, and with the win, the Ducks at least force the Kenny Powers and the Sox to win one of their final three games to clinch the 2nd seed.
The Black Sox (15-6) magic number is 1. A loss by the Ducks or win by Brookline clinches for them.

The Ducks turned a sweet double play to end the first, The Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom half.

Castle singled Gwin was hit by a pitch, Novak singled, and then Guthrie drove in two with a single up the middle.

The Ducks would go up 3-0 in the 3rd, Gwin was hit by another pitch, stole second, and Captain moved him to third with a well placed ground ball.

Ducks all-star firstbaseman, Kirk Gibson singled to right.

it was 3-0 for a bit, The Ducks turned another great double play, the Bombers got angry when Guthrie made a sick diving catch in center that they said hit the ground, but didn’t.

Then the bombers went ahead 4-3 after a couple walks and a chopper got past the Ducks 3rd baseman, and then they hit a double and someone singled.
that sequence may have been spread over 2 innings.

Fletch relieved Smith, with South Oakland trailing 4-3 and held the Bombers scoreless the rest of the way.

The Ducks tied the score in the bottom of the fifth when Wojton tripled home someone, i think, and it was 4-4.
So it was tied in the top of the sixth and Gwin threw out the guy with one sock who tried to go from first to third on a single to left center.
Then Fletcher struck out one of their 3-hitter, and he was pissed.

The Bombers broke at least 2 bats by slamming them down in frustration after strikeouts.

Tied at 4 bottom 7.

Gwin lead off the seventh with a walk, stole second barely, Novak walked, then after an out, McCray walked to load the bases for Wojton who singled off the Bombers secondbaseman who waas pitching at the time.

Wojton also went from 1st to third on a single at one point.
Great game Chris, and Ducks.

one of the bottom 3 recaps of the year.

Can we start the playoffs already?

One more tune up against the Bulldogs on Sunday.
Depo’s slider is filthy, beware, Gray Bats…
