South Oakland (2-1) advanced to the loser’s bracket semifinals with a 9-2 upset win over the South Side Eagles last night in Moon.
The lights went out for like 15 minutes, then came back on. The Ducks opened the scoring with a 4-run fourth. The Eagles made it 4-2 in the bottom half of the inning, but the Ducks piled on, scoring two in the fifth, two in the sixth, and one in the seventh.
Randy Patton pitched six strong innings, and Andy Nichols faced four batters in the seventh to end the Eagles season.
Big contributions on offense from Paul Cucco, Derek Clark, TJ Morgan, Joe Graff, Tom Pulice, Brian Strom and Ben Sorosky.
We turned three double plays, which was great.
Good job everyone.
South Oakland plays the winner of the Bandidos/Devils game, Sunday, 3pm at Moon Park.
