Game 67: Ducks at Revolution

2018-All-Star-Lineups-from-Above

The Ducks begin their post All-Star break schedule with a weekend trip to York

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

6:30 p.m. at PeoplesBank Park (York, Pa.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks resume the second half of the 2018 season tonight when they open a three-game series in Pennsylvania against the York Revolution. After a four-day break for the Atlantic League All-Star Game, the Ducks will bring a 3-0 record in the second half into this series. The Revolution have won two of their first three games in the second half, and both teams currently sit in first place in their respective divisions. Long Island has won five of their eight meetings with York thus far, including three of four at PeoplesBank Park back in early-June.

LAST GAME RECAP:

The Ducks last took the field on Sunday evening, when they held on late for a 5-3 victory over the Sugar Land Skeeters to complete a three-game sweep.

Ducks starter Bennett Parry and Skeeters starter Ben Griset dueled over the first four innings of the game, with neither pitcher yielding a run. However, in the fifth, Cody Puckett ended a 43-game home run drought with a leadoff solo blast over the left field wall. Later in the frame, Audie Afenir double to right, and Jordany Valdespin brought him home with a two-out RBI single to right.

It remained 2-0 until the bottom of the eighth when Austin Adams took over on the mound for the Skeeters. He allowed a one-out single to Lew Ford, a two-out single to Taylor Ard and a two-out walk to David Washington. That set the stage for Puckett, who drove a 1-1 pitch into the left-center field gap for a bases-clearing, three-run double that put the Flock up 5-0.

Francisco Rodriguez entered in the ninth inning for a second straight night to try and close out the game. However, the righty ran into trouble, yielding three runs on two hits, two walks and a sacrifice fly. With the tying run coming up to the plate, the closer induced a flyout to left by Derek Norris and struck out All-Star Matt Chavez swinging to seal the series sweep.

Parry collected the win after tossing seven scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and four walks while striking out 10. Griset took the loss, giving up two runs on six hits and a walk in seven innings.

SUNDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS:

ALL-STAR GAME HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

The Ducks will give the ball to Lee Sosa in the first game out of the All-Star break. The right-hander last pitched on July 4th when he start Long Island’s 5-3 win in Connecticut over the New Britain Bees. He pitched two innings after starting just three days prior, allowing a run on one hit and two walks while striking out two. Thus far, the Bronx native has compiled an 0-1 record with a 5.74 ERA in nine appearances (three starts) with the Ducks this year. He has faced York twice, once in relief and once as a starter, and has given up five runs in four and two-thirds innings of work.

York will counter with left-hander Robert Carson, who started the All-Star Game for the Freedom Division and allowed a first-inning solo homer to Somerset Patriots outfielder Julio Borbon. The southpaw has a 5-3 record with a 2.25 ERA in 20 appearances this year, four of which are starts. His last start with the Revs came on July 4th against the Sugar Land Skeeters when he took the loss despite allowing just three runs, four hits and a walk over six innings while striking out a season-high eight batters. Carson has pitched in three games against Long Island this year (two starts). He has totaled a 1-0 record with a 2.19 ERA, conceding five runs (three earned) in 12 and one-third innings.

2018 Atlantic League All-Star Game

The best the Atlantic League has to offer will compete at Bethpage Ballpark at the 2018 All-Star Game

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Liberty Division All-Stars look to put an end to the Freedom Division All-Stars’ reign over the Atlantic League’s Mid-Summer Classic. Freedom’s side has won the previous six matchups between the divisions dating back to 2011. This will be Long Island’s third time hosting the All-Star game, with the most recent occurring in 2010, and the first occurring in 2002.

FIRST HALF RECAP:

The Somerset Patriots and Sugar Land Skeeters clinched playoff spots after winning their respective divisions following 63 games. The Patriots rode a hot start to a first-half title, fending off a late push from the New Britain Bees, who pulled within two games by the end of the half. Somerset’s first-half record was 35-28, while the Sugar Land Skeeters held the best record in the league as a whole at 41-22. The Skeeters were trailing the Lancaster Barnstormers late in the half, but took six games from them in a seven-game series near the end of the midseason.

ON THE MOUND:

Bennett Parry has been arguably the best pitcher in the Atlantic League this year, and starts for the Liberty Division tonight. The 6-foot-6 lefty owns a 6-1 record with a 2.60 ERA over 12 starts thus far. His 104 strikeouts lead the Atlantic League this season, and his ERA places him third in the circuit. The California native was brilliant once again in his last start, throwing seven shutout innings against the Skeeters just three days ago, striking out 10.

The Freedom Division will have Robert Carson start tonight, who began the season in the bullpen before transitioning to a starting role. The Mississippi native earned a quality start but took the loss in his last outing, going six innings and allowing three runs in a 3-2 loss to the Sugar Land Skeeters last Wednesday. The lefty is a three-year Atlantic League veteran, spending time with the Bridgeport Bluefish and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in the past. Carson also has 31 major league appearances under his belt with the Mets dating back to 2012 and 2013.

Game 66: Ducks vs. Skeeters

The Ducks look to stay unbeaten in the second half of play with a sweep of the Skeeters

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

5:05 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

Long Island has an overall record of 32-33, and a second-half record of 2-0 coming into this game. Sugar Land clinched a playoff spot with a 41-22 record in the first half, but has started the second half 0-2. This will be the 12th of 18 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 131st all-time meeting. The Skeeters have a two-game lead on the Ducks in the all-time series, going 66-64 against the Flock, while winning the 2018 series 6-5. Long Island has defended their home at a 40-27 rate from the Skeeters. Last season’s series between the two teams ended in an even split, 10-10.

LAST GAME RECAP:

The Ducks continued their strong start to the second half with a 7-5 victory in the second game of a three-game set against the Sugar Land Skeeters.

The Skeeters struck first with a solo home run in the very first inning by Matt Chavez. Dan Lyons then pushed the Ducks ahead with a two-run homer that snuck over the left field wall in the third inning.

A base hit by Albert Cordero in the top of the sixth inning knotted the game at two, but it didn’t stay that way for long. In the bottom half of the inning, David Washington annihilated a ball to right field with the bases loaded to give the Ducks a 6-2 lead.

The Skeeters stormed back in the next inning with a sacrifice fly followed by a two-run home run off the bat of Courtney Hawkins to cut the Ducks lead to 6-5. Long Island got a valuable insurance run in the bottom half of the inning when Lew Ford hit a sacrifice fly to bring in Lyons.

Francisco Rodriguez shut the door in the ninth to convert his 14th save of the season, stranding a runner at second. Tyler Badamo earned his first win as a Duck, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four. Ben Rowen took the loss after allowing four runs (three earned) on three hits in two innings of work.

SATURDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

Bennett Parry has been arguably the best pitcher in the Atlantic League this year, and starts tonight against the Skeeters. The 6-foot-6 lefty owns a 5-1 record with a 2.88 ERA over 11 starts thus far. His 94 strikeouts lead the Atlantic League this season, and his ERA places him third in the circuit. However, the California native struggled in his last start, allowing six runs in five innings of work in the series opener against the Bees last Tuesday. Parry dominated the Skeeters earlier this season, striking out 14 over five and two-thirds innings on May 30.

Ben Griset will start for the Skeeters tonight, sporting a record of 2-2 with a 4.86 ERA this season. The Modesto, Calif., native has returned to the Skeeters rotation after easing back from injury with a pair of relief appearances in early June. The lefty has not been helped by his defense in his last two starts, going six total innings and allowing seven runs, but only three earned runs. Griset spent his last three seasons in the Mets’ organization, pitching out of the bullpen for Double-A Binghamton and earning a 4-1 record with a 2.39 ERA.

Game 65: Ducks vs. Skeeters

The Ducks look to pick up where they left off after scoring 12 runs last night

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

Long Island has an overall record of 31-33, and a second half record of 1-0 coming into this game. Sugar Land clinched a playoff spot with a 41-22 record in the first half, but has started the second half 0-1.

Long Island has defended their home at a 39-27 rate from the Skeeters. Last season’s series between the two teams ended in an even split, 10-10.

LAST GAME RECAP:

The Ducks offense delivered in a huge way last night, hitting three longballs en route to a great 12-4 win to open the second half.

Sugar Land scored first with a home run of their own in the first inning to take a 2-0 lead. It took the Ducks over three innings to tally their first run, with Ramon Cabrera hitting a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning.

The Ducks stormed ahead with a five-run fifth inning with a three-run home run off the bat of Travis Snider, and a two-run Taylor Ard bomb. Long Island added six more when two runs came in off bases-loaded walks. Ard then stepped to the plate and smacked the first grand slam of the season for the Ducks to push their lead to 12-2.

The Skeeters added two runs in the top of the ninth inning, finalizing the score at 12-4.

John Brownell pitched a marathon of a game, throwing 141 pitches over eight innings of work, allowing two runs on eight hits and five walks, striking out four. Konner Wade took the loss, allowing 10 runs on 13 hits and three walks over five and one-third innings.

FRIDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS:

Tyler Badamo will start for the Ducks tonight for the second time this season. The Mount Sinai, N.Y., native pitched against the Road Warriors in his Ducks debut last Friday, pitching seven innings of three-run ball, giving up six hits and striking out four. The righty has been with both the Skeeters and Bees this year, accumulating a record of 2-4 and an ERA of 4.81 in nine appearances (eight starts). Badamo spent last season with the now-defunct Bridgeport Bluefish, going 4-3 with a strong 2.62 ERA before having his contract purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks and reaching Triple-A Reno. The 25-year-old spent his first three professional seasons in the Mets organization, reaching Single-A Columbia, before entering the Atlantic League last year.

Kraig Sitton will take the mound tonight for the Skeeters. This will be his 29th appearance and first start of the 2018 season. The reliever comes in with a 1-0 record and 4.15 ERA. The lefty has not allowed a run in nine straight appearances (10 innings pitched). Sitton pitched at Triple-A in the San Francisco Giants organization last year, and has also spent time in the Seattle Mariners and Colorado Rockies organizations in his nine professional seasons.

6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

Long Island starts the second half 30-33, hunting for a second-half title to claim a playoff spot. Sugar Land clinched a playoff spot with a 41-22 record in the first half. This will be the 10th of 18 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 129th all-time meeting. The Skeeters have a four-game lead on the Ducks in the all-time series, going 66-62 against the Flock, while winning the 2018 series 6-3. Long Island has defended their home at a 38-27 rate from the Skeeters. Last season’s series between the two teams ended in an even split, 10-10.

LAST GAME RECAP:

The Ducks had an early lead but could not hold it, as the Bees won the series finale 4-1.

The Ducks got on the board right away in the first inning after Lew Ford and Travis Snider roped a pair of doubles to bring in the first run of the ball game. Long Island held the lead until the third inning, when Reid Brignac drove in a pair with a base hit up the middle.

A run-scoring fielder’s choice off the bat of Brock Stassi in the fifth inning and an RBI single from James Skelton in the sixth inning finalized the scoring for the Bees.

Jake Fisher (3-4) suffered the loss, lasting four and one-third innings, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks, striking out five. Mark Hamburger earned the win for the Bees, throwing seven and two-thirds innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits, walking a pair, and striking out six.

THURSDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

John Brownell will open the series for the Ducks. The team’s pitching coach will be looking to bounce back from having his last start cut short. Brownell was ejected on Saturday against the Road Warriors after three and two-thirds innings of work. Before leaving the game, he struck out six while allowing three runs (two earned) and taking the loss. Overall, the franchise leader in wins, strikeouts, innings pitched and starts is 3-7 with a 4.17 ERA in 11 games (10 starts) this season. Brownell is 0-2 in his starts against the Skeeters this season, allowing 10 runs (seven earned) over 11 innings of work.

Konner Wade will take the mound today for the series opener after scheduled starter Dallas Beeler had his contract purchased earlier today. Wade went five innings in his last start, allowing four runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk against the Barnstormers on Sunday, earning the victory. The righty owns a 4-1 record alongside a 2.71 ERA in 14 appearances this season, eight of which were starts. Wade spent his first five professional seasons in the Colorado Rockies organization, spending 2016 and 2017 with Double-A Hartford.
