Jim Teyssier allowed 1 Er over 7 2/3 innings, but lost to Elliot pitcher, J.J. Barnes who earned the complete game victory.
The game was tied 1-1 after seven. The Ducks scored when a ball bounced over Elliot’s short stop. Elliot scored after a runner reached on an error, a sac bunt, and some guy singled with 2 outs to drive him in.
The Ducks had ten or so hits, but left guys on base. Baumgartel hit one off the wall in right in the fifth, and had an interesting line of 1-1, 2b, 2sac, bb.
So we went to extras and it didn’t go so well for South Oakland.
Elliot scored five runs in the top of the eighth: Wes White hit a solo home run with one out, and then four unearned runs happened.
The Ducks bounced back with 2 runs in the bottom of the eighth, but left the tying run on deck.
We’ll see ’em again.
With the loss, South Oakland falls to 10-3 and 4-2 in the Division. Elliot is still undefeated at 14-0 and 6-0 in the division. Now we have to root for the Black Sox to beat Elliot on Thursday.
We will take it out against the Express Wednsday.
