South Oakland Ducks of the North Side
The Ducks look to bounce back after a tough loss at the hands of the Devils and get back into the thick of the division race today.
This is only the second non-night game we’ve played at Springview. It will be a whole different experience, I’m’ sure.
We have won two, one-run games against Carick this season so it figures to be another close one tonight. A win will give us the season series win and the first playoff tie-breaker over the Express. With the standings as close as they are, tie-breakers are likely going to figure in to playoff seeding and avoiding the play-in game is huge.
Injury update: Pittsburgh NABA all-time leader in hit batsmen and current Ducks RBI leader, Brian Strom, is out indefinitely with what appears to be a dislocated thumb. He made a diving catch last game in the second inning, popped his thumb back in and finished the game.
Strom will be with us in spirit.
