Spring Training Game 4 Recap
The Ducks closed out their spring training schedule for 2014 on Tuesday afternoon with a 3-1 win over the Long Island Black Sox. Both teams agreed before the game to play just seven innings, as the Ducks only needed to have four pitchers throw. However, Long Island ultimately batted one more time after seven innings to give some guys an extra at-bat. In that extra frame, the Ducks went on to add six more runs.
Here are some of the key contributors through the first seven innings of today’s game:
-Adam Bailey: 2-for-3, RBI
-Chris McClendon: 1-for-4, 2B, RBI, R
-Dan Lyons: 2-for-3
-Ducks pitchers: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K
In the six-run eighth inning for the Flock, Anthony Armenio went deep for the second consecutive game with a three-run home run to right field. Jon Myers also added a bases loaded, two-run single in that extra frame after picking up a RBI single in the seventh. Following the game, we caught up with Lyons and today’s starter Fernando Hernandez. Here are our interviews with them:
The Ducks will hold two more workouts before they officially end spring training and kick off the regular season. Wednesday and Thursday will feature activities such as infield and outfield practice, going over bunt plays, pitcher’s fielding practice and batting practice. The team will then travel to Bridgewater, New Jersey where they open up the 2014 season on Friday night at 7:05 p.m. against the Somerset Patriots.
