IMG_8516

Marc Krauss carries a 13-game hitting streak into tonight’s matchup with the Bluefish.

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

6:12 p.m. at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard (Bridgeport, Conn.)

TODAY’S MATCHUP:

After a heartbreaking loss last night, the Long Island Ducks (9-11, 45-45) take on the Bridgeport Bluefish (12-9, 53-38) Saturday night at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard. Friday night’s 8-7 win for Bridgeport propelled them into first place in the Liberty Division Second Half Standings, and extended their lead over Long Island by 2.5 games. The Ducks currently enjoy a narrow 6-5 advantage in the 2017 Ferry Cup series.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: 

The Long Island Ducks fell to the Bridgeport Bluefish 8-7 Friday night at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard in the opener of a three-game series.

The Ducks (9-11; 45-45) took the lead in the top of the third inning, sending 10 batters to the plate and scoring six runs on five hits against Bluefish starter Ross Seaton. The frame was highlighted by a two-run single from Delta Cleary Jr. and RBI doubles from Jordan Pacheco and Angelo Songco.

Bridgeport (12-9; 53-38) answered back against Long Island starter Tyler Levine with three runs in the bottom of the fourth, led by a two-run home run from Daniel Fields.

The Bluefish took a 7-6 lead in the bottom of the fifth while chasing Levine with one out and sending nine batters to the dish. Levine allowed six runs on six hits in 4.1 innings, walking four and striking out three and getting no decision.

In the top of the ninth, Elmer Reyes led off by lacing a ground rule double off Elvin Ramirez and was pinch run for by Dan Lyons. Ruben Gotay grounded out to advance Lyons to third, and an opposite-field single by Giovanny Alfonzo plated Lyons to tie the game at seven.

Two Long Island errors and an intentional walk in the bottom of the ninth loaded the bases with one out for Jose Gil, who lifted a sacrifice fly off David Aardsma to score D’Arby Myers with the winning run. Ramirez got the win to improve to 3-1, while Aardsma got the loss, dropping to 1-2 on the season.

HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

Staff ace John Brownell gets the ball in the middle game of the three-game series with Bridgeport. The right-hander makes his 17th start of the season and owns a 7-2 record with a 3.27 ERA so far. Brownell is coming off of a rough start his last time out against the Lancaster Barnstormers on July 23 in which he allowed five runs on eight hits in 4.2 innings, getting the loss. However, the 34-year-old has pitched well against the Bluefish this season, going 2-1 with a 2.14 ERA in three starts. Brownell has thrown seven innings in each of those outings, which include two quality starts.

Bridgeport answers with rookie righty Mike Aquilino, who will be making just his third start of the season. So far, the University of New Haven product has no record and a 3.48 ERA in two starts, and has struck out three and walked eight in 10.1 innings pitched while allowing 10 hits. The 28-year-old graduated from the University of New Haven in 2012 where he was teammates with 2017 Long Island Duck Henry Hirsch.

Game 89: Ducks vs. Skeeters

Ducks Win (19)GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TODAY’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (8-10, 44-44) square off against the Sugar Land Skeeters (8-10, 38-50) in the rubber game of a three-game series. The skirmish wraps up a short three-game homestand for Long Island after which the club departs for a six-game road trip to Bridgeport and York. Tonight’s game marks the 13th game of the year between the Skeeters and the Ducks, with Sugar Land owning a 7-5 advantage thus far.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks took an early lead but fell to the Sugar Land Skeeters 5-4 Wednesday afternoon at Bethpage Ballpark.

Long Island took the lead in the bottom of the first inning when Anthony Vega and Delta Cleary Jr. drew back-to-back walks against Sugar Land starting pitcher Bobby Blevins. After a wild pitch advanced the runners to second and third, Marc Krauss tripled to centerfield to give the Ducks a 2-0 lead.

It was Krauss’ first three-base hit of the season, and his first since 2015 while playing for the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens of the International League.

Krauss was in the middle of the action again in the bottom of the third, this time scoring Jordan Pacheco with an RBI double, and later coming home to score on an Angelo Songco single.

Staked to a 4-0 lead through three innings, Ducks starter Matt Larkins pitched effectively into the sixth inning, during which he allowed a two-run home run to Josh Prince. Larkins threw 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on seven hits, walking one and striking out four.

The Skeeters got within a run by scoring a tally in the seventh off Rob Rogers, and tied the game at four in the eighth with a score against Jake Dunning. In the top of the ninth, David Aardsma allowed a run to hand Sugar Land a 5-4 lead, which was saved by Mark Haynes.

ON THE MOUND: Rafael Perez takes the mound for the Ducks in the rubber game of the series, looking to right the ship of what has been a turbulent month of July. Overall in 16 starts this season, Perez is 6-6 with a 4.22 ERA, but in July he is just 1-3 with an unsightly 6.30 ERA (14 ER/20.0 IP). He has pitched well against Sugar Land this year, notching a 1-1 record with a 3.27 ERA (4 ER/11.0 IP) in two outings. Last time out, Perez allowed four runs on seven hits in four innings at Lancaster on July 21, getting tagged with the loss.

The Skeeters send lefty Dustin Richardson to the hill to make a spot start, which is his first start of the season. In 37 relief appearances, the former Long Island Duck is 1-4 with a 3.99 ERA and four saves. He has made four appearances against Long Island this year, an has not allowed a hit or a run in 2.2 innings. The southpaw spent parts of two seasons in the major leagues with the Boston Red Sox, making 39 appearances.

Game 88: Ducks vs. Skeeters

DE6I0705GAME TIME/LOCATION: 11:05 a.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TODAY’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (8-9, 44-43) return home to face the Sugar Land Skeeters (7-10, 37-50) on Camp Day in the middle game of a three-game series. The Ducks look to take the series with the Skeeters with a victory today, and would also even up the 2017 season series. Sugar Land has won six of the first 11 matchups between the two clubs.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Sugar Land Skeeters 6-1 on Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

An RBI single by Travis Scott in the first inning off Ducks starter Henderson Alvarez gave the Skeeters an early 1-0 lead. Alex Burg tied the game in the bottom of the second with a towering solo home run to left-center field off Sugar Land starter Brett Marshall.

Long Island took the lead in the fourth with a three-run, three-hit frame. A two-run homer to right by Marc Krauss and a sacrifice fly to right off the bat of Giovanny Alfonzo put the Flock ahead 4-1. Angelo Songco rounded out the scoring in the eighth with a two-run blast over the wall in right.

Alvarez did not factor into the decision. He pitched four innings, allowing one unearned run on four hits with a strikeout. Alfredo Simon (1-2) earned the win with three scoreless innings of relief, giving up just one hit while striking out four. Marshall (6-6) took the loss, yielding four runs on five hits and four walks over six innings with four strikeouts. Amalio Diaz and David Aardsma each pitched a scoreless inning of relief for the Ducks.

Krauss, Burg and Jordan Pacheco each had two hits to pace the Flock offensively.

ON THE MOUND: Matt Larkins takes the mound for the Ducks in the only morning start at Bethpage Ballpark this season. In 17 appearances (16 starts) this season, the right-hander is 4-6 with a 4.27 ERA, and has struck out 79 and walked 23 in 92.2 innings. His 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings this season is the highest mark of his career, while 2.2 walks per nine innings is in line with the rest of his career numbers. In his last start on July 19 against New Britain, Larkins was roughed up for six runs on 13 hits, but got the win in a 13-6 Ducks triumph. In two outings against the Skeeters, the Idaho native has no record but a 1.38 ERA (2 ER/13.0 IP) and has struck out 12 batters.

Sugar Land calls upon former Duck Bobby Blevins, who will be making his 18th appearance and 14th overall start of the season. The righty is 4-6 with an ugly 5.30 ERA, and has been rocked in his last two outings. In 4.2 innings across his last two appearances on July 15 and 20, Blevins has allowed a staggering 13 runs on 17 hits, for an ERA of 25.05. However, he has pitched well against the Ducks, going 1-1 against his former team in three quality starts.

Game 82: Ducks vs. Bees

Zac Treece (6)GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (41-40, 5-6) take on the New Britain Bees (31-49, 5-5) to continue a three-game series Tuesday night at Bethpage Ballpark. This marks the second of 10 second-half games between Long Island and New Britain, and the first trip to the Island for the Bees since April 28-30.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the New Britain Bees 5-3 on Monday night in the opener of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

Jovan Rosa put the Bees on top first with a solo home run to left field in the opening inning off Ducks starter Tyler Levine. The Ducks answered in the bottom of the second when Alex Burg launched a mammoth solo home run to left off Bees starter Greg Nappo.

New Britain went back ahead in the third on Rosa’s two-out RBI double to right-center. However, a line drive solo homer to left by Giovanny Alfonzo in the fifth tied the game at two.

Angelo Songco put Long Island on top for good one inning later when he crushed a two-run home run to right field on the first pitch he saw. Elmer Reyes delivered an RBI single to center in the eighth to increase the Ducks’ lead to 5-2.

The Bees plated a run in the ninth on an RBI single to left by Jordan Hinshaw. However, Michael Crouse struck out to end the ballgame.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Levine pitched five innings, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Nappo also threw five innings of two-run ball, yielding six hits and striking out four. Rob Rogers (2-0) earned the win with three scoreless innings of relief, allowing just one hit while striking out three. Brandon Fry (0-3) took the loss, surrendering two runs on a hit and two walks in one inning. David Aardsma collected his ninth save of the year despite yielding a run on two hits in the ninth while striking out two.

Songco and Lew Ford each had two hits to pace the Flock offensively. Songco drove in two runs while Ford scored twice.

ON THE MOUND: Henderson Alvarez makes his Long Island Ducks debut tonight after signing with the club late last week. The right-hander spent five seasons in the major leagues with Toronto (2011-12) and Miami (2013-15). He is notable for having thrown a no-hitter on the final day of the 2013 season with the Marlins, and was a National League All-Star in 2014 when he posted a 12-7 record with a 2.65 ERA. Alvarez joined the Marlins organization as part of the seven-player return for the November 2012 mega-trade that sent Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle and Jose Reyes to the Blue Jays.

The Bees send former big-leaguer Jonathan Pettibone to the mound, making his 13th start of the season, and second against the Ducks. Overall the former Philadelphia Phillies hurler is 1-4 with a 4.76 ERA, and has allowed 55 hits, while striking out 36 and walking 10 in 51 innings. Against the Ducks on April 28, Pettibone threw five shutout innings, allowing four hits and not walking or striking out a batter in getting no decision. Last time out on July 2, Pettibone was rocked by the Bridgeport Bluefish, allowing eight runs on nine hits in five innings.

Game 80: Ducks vs. Patriots

de6i7448.jpgGAME TIME/LOCATION: 5:05 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (40-39, 4-5) take on the Somerset Patriots (45-33, 3-5) in the rubber game of a three-game series. The Ducks currently sit in third place on the Liberty Division standings, only two games behind the Bridgeport Bluefish for first place in the second half standings, while the Patriots sit in fourth, 2.5 games back.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Somerset Patriots 7-4 on Saturday night in the middle game of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

Long Island opened the scoring with a three-run second inning against Patriots starter Will Oliver. A two-run double by Jordan Pacheco and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Dan Lyons highlighted the inning. Scott Kelly hit an inside-the-park solo homer in the third inning off Ducks starter Rafael Perez, but an RBI single in the bottom of the frame by Ruben Gotay made it a 4-1 game.

Somerset grabbed another run in the fourth on an RBI single by Carlos Guzman, but the Ducks responded once again with an RBI double off the bat of Quintin Berry in the bottom of the inning to get their three-run advantage back. In the sixth, Lyons drove an opposite-field two-run homer to increase Long Island’s advantage to 7-2.

The Patriots tried to rally back in the eighth inning, plating a pair of runs on an RBI infield single from Kelly and a bases loaded walk to Alfredo Rodriguez. However, Lew Ford ran down a fly ball to left from Christian Marrero to strand the tying runs on base.

Perez (6-5) earned the win, tossing six innings and allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight. Oliver (3-2) suffered the loss, surrendering seven runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings with six strikeouts. David Aardsma collected his eighth save of the season with one and one-third scoreless innings of relief.

Pacheco led the Flock with three hits, while Lyons added two. Lyons drove in three runs and scored twice, while Pacheco picked up two RBI and a run.

ON THE MOUND: Dennis O’Grady heads to the mound in the rubber game for the Ducks, making his 17th appearance and 13th start of the season. O’Grady is 4-5 with a 5.17 ERA in 73 innings this year, and has allowed 74 hits while recording 59 strikeouts and 39 walks. In his last outing on July 7 at Southern Maryland, the righty allowed four runs on six hits in 5.1 innings, and got no decision in a 5-4 Blue Crabs victory. Over his last three starts, O’Grady has a less-than-stellar 4:8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 18 innings.

The Patriots send Lucas Irvine to the bump in Sunday’s contest, making his 15th start of the season. Irvine is 5-2 with a 4.26 ERA on the campaign, and has allowed a staggering 83 hits in 76 innings, while striking out 50 and walking 28. The 6-1 right-hander was marvelous in his last start on July 9 against Sugar Land, allowing a run on seven hits in 7.2 innings in a 2-1 Patriots win. Irvine is 0-0 with a 3.00 ERA (3 ER/9.0 IP) in his two starts against the Ducks this season.
