Rob “Iceberg” Galvanek pitched a scoreless 7th inning and went 1-for-3 with 2RBI as the Ducks beat the Warriors 14-2 in Etna last Wednesday.
Brian Strom pitched the first two innings on short rest while our attorney was stuck in traffic.
No word how much Warriors management may or may not have paid Ciccone to get stuck in traffic and arrive in the second inning.
Ciccone played an inning at first base, which means he has played all nine positions for South Oakland this year. Then he pitched four innings of one run baseball to earn the win.
This was a solid team win for the Ducks. South Oakland has won 5 straight and is now in first place with a record of 11-3.
The Warriors (2-8) are having a tough season. Newman had a sweet game for them, and Boley played well behind the plate.
Starting with our game on Sunday, South Oakland plays three games in four days (five in seven), and we still have a make-up game against the Senators to reschedule.
Who wants to pitch?
It looks like there’s going to be a three team race between the Ducks (11-3), North America (11-4), and the WOLFPACK!!! (9-4) for the top 2 seeds and the ever-important first round bye in the playoffs. It should be an exciting pennant race. We have a big double header against North America next weekend, and one game left against the WOLFPACK!!!
It was the former head coach of the Matadors, who is no longer in the league, that tried to bribe teams to throw games. For more on bribery, see the previous post.
South Oakland’s next game is this Sunday, 3:30pm vs. the Titans.
