Tough one-run loss the day after Brandt’s wedding. Looks like we battled, and came up just short, scoring two in the sixth on Morgan’s RBI single and another in the seventh off a Colton Fago triple. We had the tying run on third to end the game. Two close ones against the Eagles this year. We’ve accounted for half their wins.
South Oakland falls to 6-5 with the loss. The Eagles improve to 4-6.
The Ducks next game is Wednesday, 8pm at West Field vs Sheraden
Around the League
Cranberry handed Bauerstown their first loss of the season this weekend, and those two teams are tied for first at 7-1.
The defending champion Oilers (7-4) are somehow still competent despite their manager’s pleas to stay in AA because their team that lost everyone and has no pitching.
Sheraden is a game in front of us at 6-3. Big game against them this Wednesday. It’ll be interesting to see how they respond to the suspensions that were handed down over the weekend, and a ton of makeup games that have been backloaded to their schedule.
The Devils and Bandidos both won by forfeit over the Wolfpack this weekend. Bad news for West View. I’m not sure if they are going to be able to keep from folding. Who could’ve seen this coming?
How are the Bandidos 1-6?
A big part of succeeding in this league is being able to put out a competitive lineup when starters are on vacation or whatever, and grind through June without blowing up too many times. We’ve done ok so far, but a couple close losses and an opening day error-fest might hurt down the line. It’d be great to string a few together, and get out of the middle of the pack. We play 4 games in 6 days next week.
One thought on “Ducks Lose: South Oakland 5, Eagles 6”
I always enjoy reading your posts Ben. Time for a statement game Wednesday night. Hope I can make it. — Leland Riley
