South Oakland lost 6-1 to the South Hills Devils last night in Carrick. Devils’ starter Dan Heinecke (W, 1-1) threw a complete game for the win. Brandon Blackstone, went six innings for the Duck in the loss. The Devils took advantage of a three-run fourth and a two-run fifth, and they got great starting pitching.
We had good enough pitching to win, but had some guys playing out of position, and it hurt us. We didn’t take advantage of a few situations when we had men on base. We get another shot at it on Wednesday.
Tom Pulice drove in our run in the first inning. Dillon Williams had two doubles.
South Oakland plays next against the Devils. Wed 9pm at Springview Field.
