South Oakland and South Side battled to a 5-5 tie yesterday in Elliot. The Ducks lead 5-1 early but couldn’t add to their lead. The Eagles scored two unearned runs late in the game, and South Oakland lead 5-3 heading into the bottom of the seventh. The Eagles battled back to tie after a bunch of walks.
The Ducks failed to win another great start from Billy Welsh.
- We left a lot of men on base yesterday
- We are 2-2-1 in extra-innings this season
- At this point, we are playing for the 4th seed, and a home playoff game – still very attainable
- We are 0-3-1 without 2019 team MVP, SS, Tony Casale. Our other middle infielders have had work commitments the last couple weeks. It’s been a tough four games.
South Oakland plays next on Wednesday, 9pm, Springview Field vs Bakery Square.
Wednesday is throwback night. Both teams will wear historic NABA jerseys to celebrate our league’s illustrious 17 year history.
