The South Oakland Ducks of the North Side (1-1) defeated the Bakery Square Bandidos (0.5-1) by a score of 6-4 last night in Spring Hill. Bakery Square opened the scoring when their new guy hit one to the fence and their other new guy singled him in, breaking a scoreless tie. There were some walks, and the Ducks trailed 3-0 going into the bottom of the fourth.
South Oakland scored four in the fourth. Muslin walked, Casale doubled, Pulice, Clark, and Fago singled. Colton Fago was hit by a pitch and Gwin drove in a run on a ground out.
Cody Quinn struck out the side in the fifth, and the Ducks added two more in the bottom of the inning when Brandt was hit by a pitch, Zuzak doubled, and Casale hit a sac fly. Zuzak scored on Pulice’s second hit of the night. I might be missing something in there, but that was basically what happened.
Tom picked a guy off first in the seventh then new guy grounded out to end the game. Fago recorded the save for the Ducks, capping off a strong night for the bullpen.
- Eight of the first nine outs Ducks starter, Randy Patton (W, 1-0) recorded in the game were either strikeouts or groundouts to the pitcher.
