South Oakland 7, Cranberry 3
Paul Emig (1-o-1) earned his first win as a Duck since 2007, allowing 2 runs over 4 innings, to help South Oakland (1-0, 2-4-2) open divisional play with a 7 – 3 win over Cranberry (0-1, 2-5).
Trailing 2-0 in the top of the fifth, Fetter led off the inning with a double, followed by four singles by Roberts, Emig, Ken Cool, and Gwin to put South Oakland up 3-2. With two out in the inning, Swartwout doubled in Ken Cool to give the Ducks a 4-2 lead.
In the Sixth Fetter singled to lead off the inning, and advanced to third on a wild pitch and a fielder’s choice (not sure in which order, the book is a mess). Fetter would score on an overthrow back to the pitcher.
In the seventh, Ken Cool and Gwin hit back to back singles to start the inning, Ken Cool scored on Swartwout’s second double of the game, Gwin scored on an rbi groundout by Houseman.
In the bottom of the 6th, TJ Morgan and Houseman teamed up to throw a guy out at third attempting to stretch a double into a triple.
Fetter may have picked up a three-inning save, allowing 1 unearned run in relief. Not sure if that’s possible.
We really needed this one.
South Oakland will face the Black Sox wed night, 9pm at SpringView Field.
