Ken Cool singled in 2 runs in the top of the sixth to put the Ducks ahead 4-3 after six.
TJ Morgan led off the top of the seventh with a double and we left him stranded.
Elliot drove in the winning run on a two-out single in the bottom of the seventh.
Game Two got ugly in the fourth. We led 1-0 and then they started hitting home runs. It got to 10-2 at one point, then they added two more in the top of the seventh. South Oakland scored three in the bottom of the seventh.
What we accomplished this year was to re-lay the foundation of a winning team. We literally stared in late January with five guys after the exodus to Clinton claimed most of the roster, and we put together a team that was just a couple pieces away.
MVP: James Fago
Offensive player of the year: Bobby Swartwout
Defensive player of the year: Dave Houseman
We have a solid nucleus for next season.
We’ll probably get a fall ball team together so be ready for that.
