Professional Hitter Joe Graff lead the way as South Oakland of the North Side (8-6) knocked Pittsburgh D2 (8-4) out of first place with a 10-1 win in West End last night, completing a season sweep of the young club by a combined score of 22-1 over two games.
Chris Heisler (W, 1-1) threw four innings, allowing 2 hits and 1 run.
Mike Longman came in and pitched three shutout innings in relief for the Ducks.
We scored a bunch early and coasted.
Ben Sorosky drove in a run for his second RBI in two games.
Tony Casale drove in two runs with a ground out to second base
Veteran Savvy on display.
There was a bizarre play in which one of our players tried to field a foul ball while he was a base runner and was called out which lead to some arguing. This was not our finest moment.
The umps might have checked out early. There was some frustration from the home team.
That last kid D2 pitched was Adam Banks-good.
After a 3-5 start, South Oakland has won 5 of 6 and is 1.5 games out of first. One of five teams with 8 wins. Should be a crazy stretch run.
The offense is showing signs of life.
The Ducks play next on, Saturday, 3pm at Bauerstown
