Cody Quinn and Randy Patton lead South Oakland to back to back wins over the Hebrew Oilers. Quinn pitched a gem on Tuesday in East Liberty, going six innings and allowing one run. He worked out of trouble early, stranding the bases loaded, and striking out the side in the second. Patton pitched a scoreless seventh inning, in the Ducks 6-1 win. Tom Pulice hit a bases loaded double to give the Ducks some breathing room, and added an RBI single in the seventh.
Wednesday night in Spring Hill, Patton threw a complete game against his former team and the Ducks pulled away with a four run sixth inning to break a 4-4 tie. DJ Dover drew a bases loaded walk, and Paul Cucco hit a bases clearing triple. South Oakland went on to win 8-4.
Both games were close until the late innings.
South Oakland is now .5 games out of third for the final first round bye, and one back in the win column of the first place Eagles.
It’s going to be exciting down the stretch.
South Oakland’s next game is Saturday night at 8pm vs. Carrick at Volunteer Field. Hopefully the permit situation is worked out.
