South Oakland Ducks of the North Side
Elliot (9-2, 4-0) is separating itself from the rest of the Allegheny Division and has the best record in the league. The Ducks are looking to avenge an opening day 7-1 loss to Elliot.
This league has a very high percentage of teams not ending in ‘s.’ – elliot, militia, cranberry, black sox, cherokee. Five out of eight in the AA division. However, in the A division all of the teams do in fact end in ‘s.’ interesting. The Chris Wojton-led Devils won 24 to 9 over the weekend. That game couldn’t have been fun for anyone, certainly not the umpires. I can’t imagine how big the strike zone must have been in the fourth or fifth inning.
The Black Sox dropped three straight to Ken Cool’s brother’s team this weekend (with a ruling on a rain-shortened game pending).
It’s like someone died in Brookline.
I don’t think anyone would have thought Cranberry and the Black Sox would be battling it out for a playoff spot.
There’s a lot of baseball left, but at 5-1 halfway through our divisional schedule the Ducks are in a good spot.
We’ve had different guys come up big in key situations, and the pitching has improved greatly.
We still haven’t played our best baseball yet.
South Oakland and Elliot both have division games coming up on Wed. We’ll see how this plays out tonight.
