South Oakland jumped out to an 8-0 lead after three innings, and held off a late Brookline rally to win 9-5.
James Fago pitched a complete game for the much-needed victory, and added an RBI single.
Ducks right fielder Zach Skowvron literally knocked out the Sox starting pitcher with a line drive to the groin area that went for a bases loaded, rbi single in the third.
I hope that guy isn’t pissing blood. it looked like it really hurt.
The Ducks did a good job of stranding Black Sox runners, and getting timely hits.
For the Ducks, Baumgartel hit a triple, Anthony Ciccone was 2-for-3 with two doubles, Stahl 2-for-4 with a double, Gwin was 2-for-4 with a double and 3 rbi, Skowvron was 2-for-3 with a walk. 8 South Oakland starters recorded a hit, and all nine reached base safely at least once.
The above might not be 100% accurate, I don’t have the book, but we hit well.
For the Sox, Kenny Powers and Goldie hit triples.
A win against the Black Sox, in Brookline, is always big.
South Oakland has scored 26 runs in its last 3 games and looks to keep the momentum going throughout the weekend.
South Oakland next plays a double header at Cranberry, Saturday, 1pm.
