South Oakland lost to D2, 8-4, in the opening round of the playoffs last night in West View. The game was suspended in the top of the 8th when the lights went out at Herschel Park on Saturday night. The Ducks committed six errors, and wasted a good starting pitching performance by Randy Patton.
South Oakland recorded four hits in the fourth inning and didn’t score a run. Trailing 4-2 in the bottom of the seventh, the Ducks tied the game on two, bases loaded walks.
D2 scored two unearned runs in the top of the eighth. The ump missed a call when Maldonado doubled off a runner at first, but the guy was called safe. They hit some singles. There was an error on a pickoff attempt. It was a mess. Then the lights went out.
The game resumed yesterday and D2 scored two more runs.
Our defense and base running let us down. Their pitcher threw well.
This was a bad game.
Tonight the Ducks take on the Bauerstown Grizzlies. 9pm at West Field.
Bad news for the Grizzlies.
