South Oakland Ducks of the North Side (0-1)
Carrick Express (1-1)
South Oakland looks to get back on track after a tough loss to West View last week. Carrick is good. We are short a few guys tonight, so some players who might not start normally will get some at bats against one of the better pitchers we will face this season.
Below is an old score book page from 2010.
This was a Ducks vs Maulers game. The Maulers played in single A that season, and would eventually become the Express. South Oakland won 6-2. We lost to them earlier in the season.
Vernacchio’s last at bat was a 2-RBI double.
Kress, Kopy, Cannon, are all former Black Sox and Express players. Gruendle is still on the Express.
This must have been early in the season before all the Waynesburg guys joined the team that season and I nearly destroyed the franchise, which I’ve written enough about at this point.
Casale had a day. Duffy left to be a scientist halfway through this season. Guthrie would get the win on the mound in the deciding game of our second championship.
Bad News for the Express
