South Oakland led 3-2 going into the bottom of the 5th, the Sox scored two to take a 4-3 lead.
the Sox would add another run in the bottom of the sixth.
South Oakland tied the game at 5-5 with 2 runs in the top of the seventh.
Dutch drove in the tying run with an RBI fielder’s choice.
We needed to take the lead there and we didn’t.
Wojton drilled a ball to the gap, and the Sox left fielder was shaded that way, and was able to make the catch.
The Ducks didn’t really threaten in extra frames.
We almost turned a triple play.
There’s no shame in losing a 10 inning game.
Much better than last year’s playoff loss.
It is a whole different kind of pain.
Good season, everyone.
This game will go down in the annals of the Ducks Sox rivalry as by far the best baseball game of the storied series.
I can’t believe its over.
Good luck to the Sox and whomever they face in the Conference Finals.
Kenny played so well he was offered a contract with Tampa.
Note: the foul ball call was correct. we looked it up.
here’s the rule:
the highlighted part says, “is touched by a player “on” foul territory, it is a foul ball.”
there was some uproar over that.
the call was correct.
Its a footnote in the story of a great game, and a bitter sweet season.
If someone wants to go into more detail on this recap that would be great, but I don’t have the mental capacity right now.
The Ducks will field a team in the Labor Day Tournament, and will travel to Erie to play a 3 game series against the Erie Adult Baseball League team or team(s) McCray knows the weekend of August 22nd.
I’m looking forward to another solid season recap from Coby.
