South Oakland dropped to 0-3 on the season with a disappointing loss to Cranberry on Saturday. Cranberry scored three unearned runs due to a dropped fly ball that kept the second inning alive, and allowed Cranberry to plate three runs.
More concerning was the Ducks’ inability to hit. Cranberry’ starter was very effective. The Ducks were one-hit for the second straight game, and have only scored 4 runs in three games. Chuck Zuzack (L, 0-1)and Chris Heisler combined to throw six solid innings, allowing zero earned runs.
South Oakland next plays at home on Wednesday night at 9PM against Single A champs, Sheridan.
What a miserable game. This weather sucks. We’ve wasted three good pitching performances so far. No need to panic, but it’s time to score some runs and get a win.
