The South Oakland Ducks of the North Side lost the regular season finale, 5-2 to South Side at Herschel Park on Sunday. The Eagles lead 2-0 going into the top of the fifth when the Ducks scored a run on an Andy Nichols hit to shallow right, which the Eagles second baseman made a great play on to knock down. Nichols beat the throw to first and Mike Brandt appeared to beat the throw to the plate when he attempted to score from second on the play, but he was called out. Tough call there. It would’ve tied it with the middle of our order coming up, but whatever. We didn’t hit very well as a team today, so it might not have mattered.
The Eagles added three in the bottom half of the inning off the Ducks bullpen. The Ducks added a run in the sixth, but left some guys on base.
We made a few errors that lead to one Eagles run, and two walks to start the fifth lead to two runs.
The Eagles starter was really tough. We were short a couple key guys in our lineup, and their pitcher hit spots all day. Tough loss, but the Eagles earned it. They made all the plays.
Congrats to the Eagles on a great year. I think they are the top seed, but it may depend on what the Bandidos do vs. West View tonight.
Hopefully we see them in the finals or semifinals. I think it would be a great series. If anything, it will be tough to beat us five times in one season.
