Cherokee starting pitcher Jim Tessyier threw complete game, one-hit shutout in game one, allowing only 2 base runners. Clinton scored 6 runs in the bottom of the 5th to ten-run the Ducks.
South Oakland dropped a frustrating game two by a score of 8-5, and the team’s record now stands at 1-4.
During the game, Clinton’s manager’s back windshield was smashed out by a foul ball.
Despite the loss, the Ducks remain optimistic the team can put it together in time for a run at the playoffs.
We’ve got the pieces, we just need to keep grinding it out and the wins will come.
South Oakland plays next vs. the Bulldogs (2-1), Monday night 9pm at Springview Field.
