Game 55: Ducks at Barnstormers

IMG_2028GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:30 p.m. at Clipper Magazine Stadium (Lancaster, Pa.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (27-27) take on the Lancaster Barnstormers (29-25) in the middle game of a three-game series tonight at Clipper Magazine Stadium. The Barnstormers have won four out of the first five matchups with the Ducks this season, including taking three of four at Bethpage Ballpark last month.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks pounded out 10 hits, but fell to the Lancaster Barnstormers 7-3 on Friday night in the opening game of a three-game series at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

Long Island (27-27) starter Alfredo Simon was perfect through three innings in his Ducks debut, but ran into trouble in the fourth, allowing four runs on three hits. The big blow was a two-run home run from Garrett Weber.

The Ducks got on the board in the top of the fifth against Bryan Evans (4-2) of the Barnstormers (29-25) when Elmer Reyes drove home Delta Cleary Jr. with an RBI single to cut the lead to 4-1.

Simon (0-1) lasted four innings in his first outing of the season, allowing four runs on three hits, walking one and striking out four. Henry Hirsch relieved him and threw two scoreless innings before Jim Fuller yielded a run in the bottom of the seventh to give Lancaster a 5-1 lead.

Marc Krauss hit a solo home run in the top of the eighth bringing the Ducks to within 5-2, but the Barnstormers answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame to extend a 7-2 advantage.

In the top of the ninth, Anthony Vega scored on a Lew Ford single to narrow the gap to 7-3, and the Ducks eventually loaded the bases to bring the tying run to the plate. However, they couldn’t break through against Anthony Carter, who recorded his 12th save of the season.

ON THE MOUND: Long Island sends Dennis O’Grady to the mound to make his eighth start of the season and his 12th overall appearance. O’Grady is 2-2 with a 3.00 ERA on the season, and has struck out 45 batters in 45.0 innings this year. Last time out on June 11 against Bridgeport, the righty lasted five innings, allowing one run on four hits, walking three and striking out five. In his one previous outing against Lancaster this season, O’Grady was roughed up – allowing a season-high six runs on nine hits in four innings in game one of a May 27 doubleheader.

The Barnstormers will roll with southpaw Rommie Lewis, making his 10th start of the season and 11th overall appearance. Lewis is in his fifth year in the Atlantic League, having previously spent three years with York and one with Bridgeport. Lewis has been struggling lately for Lancaster, sporting a 9.64 ERA (15 ER/14.0 IP) over his last three starts. The lefty has lost his last four decisions, and is 2-5 overall on the season with a 6.94 ERA. Lewis has not faced Long Island yet in 2017.

Game 54: Ducks at Barnstormers

Vega-Running-5-17-17GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:30 p.m. at Clipper Magazine Stadium (Lancaster, Pa.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (27-26) continue their six-game road trip by beginning a three-game series with the Lancaster Barnstormers (28-25). Tonight’s contest is the first time that the Ducks will play the Barnstormers on the road this season, and is just the fifth matchup between the clubs this year. Lancaster has won three of the first four games, all coming at Bethpage Ballpark in May.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Somerset Patriots 3-1 on a near-historic night at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, N.J. on Thursday.

Ducks starter Matt Larkins (2-5) nearly made history, coming just three outs shy of pitching the second no-hitter in franchise history (Rod Henderson, 5/25/01 vs. Atlantic City). The right-hander retired the first 20 batters he faced before allowing a two-out walk in the seventh inning to Carlos Guzman, ending his bid for a perfect game. He set down the next four hitters in order to bring a no-hitter into the ninth. However, he surrendered a leadoff solo home run to Chris Grayson that ended his chance at history.

“It was a little bit of a let down,” Larkins commented following the game. “You want to get through nine with it. It’s one of those things that doesn’t happen too often. I threw a good changeup down and away, and he kind of just got enough of it to get it out. I have no problem with the pitch; He just did a good job of hitting it.”

Larkins finished his night with eight and one-third innings pitched, yielding just the homer and two walks while striking out seven batters. He threw 99 pitches while earning the victory, 67 of which were strikes.

“I felt good pretty much the whole game,” Larkins commented following the game. “I think I knew pretty much the whole game what was going on. It was just one of those nights where I had a really good sinker going – had a lot of movement on it – and then really good command of the other two pitches.”

The Ducks (27-26) were kept off the scoreboard by Patriots starter Lucas Irvine until the top of the seventh inning, when Long Island broke through against reliever Duane Below. Delta Cleary Jr.’s two-out single and Giovanny Alfonzo’s RBI double put the Flock ahead 1-0. Long Island added single runs in the eighth and ninth to build a 3-0 lead on RBI singles by Angelo Songco and Dan Lyons.

Following Grayson’s homer in the ninth, Somerset (32-21) put the tying runs on base via a one-out walk to Scott Kelly and a two-out walk to Carlos Guzman. However, Chin-Hui Tsao struck out former Duck Mark Minicozzi to end the ballgame.

Irvine took a no-decision for the Patriots, tossing six scoreless innings, allowing three hits and three walks while striking out five. Below (3-1) suffered the loss, surrendering two runs on four hits and a walk in two innings of relief with four strikeouts. Tsao collected his seventh save of the season after recording the final two outs of the game, both on strikeouts.

Marc Krauss led the Flock offensively with two hits in the victory, while Elmer Reyes added a hit and three walks.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks begin the series by sending Alfredo Simon to the mound to make his Long Island debut. The nine-year MLB vet was a National League All-Star in 2014 while pitching with the Cincinnati Reds, going 15-10 with a 3.44 ERA in 196.1 innings. In 2016, Simon appeared in 15 games (11 starts) with Cincinnati, in his second stint with the club, going 2-7 with a 9.36 ERA. “Big Pasta” also pitched for the Baltimore Orioles and Detriot Tigers in his big league career.

Lancaster counters with Atlantic League veteran Bryan Evans, in his third season with the club. Evans is 3-2 with a 4.88 ERA in his first nine starts of the season, which marks his third with the Barnstormers. The 30-year-old has not faced the Ducks yet this season, but in his last start on June 10, he allowed one run on three hits in six innings to get the win over the York Revolution. Evans was an Atlantic League All-Star in 2016, and was the Barnstormers’ Opening Day starter in 2015 and 2016. Last year, he set the franchise record with 130 strikeouts, including a single-game record 13 against the Ducks on August 14.

Game 48: Ducks vs. Bluefish

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (24-23) begin a three-game home series with the Bridgeport Bluefish (27-21) tonight at Bethpage Ballpark. The Fish are visiting the Ducks Pond for the first time this season, and hold a 2-1 lead in the 2017 Ferry Cup. The series marks a short three-game homestand for the Ducks, who begin a six-game road trip on Tuesday.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: Behind strong pitching from Rafael Perez, the Long Island Ducks completed a three-game sweep of the New Britain Bees, winning 3-2 Thursday night at New Britain Stadium.

The Ducks broke out the bats in the top of the second, touching up Bees starter Anthony Marzi for three runs. Giovanny Alfonzo plated Marc Krauss with a single and later scored on a Delta Cleary Jr. single. Cleary Jr. came around thanks to a Fehlandt Lentini double to extend a 3-0 lead.

Perez yielded a tally in the bottom of the second when he allowed a leadoff homer to Conor Bierfeldt to cut the lead to 3-1. The southpaw allowed just one other unearned run in his six innings of work, allowing five hits and striking out three while not issuing a walk.

Eury De La Rosa and Amalio Diaz each contributed scoreless innings of relief, while Chin-Hui Tsao shut the door in the ninth for his fifth save of the season.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks send John Brownell to the mound in the series opener with the Bluefish, making his team-leading 10th start of the season. The right-hander is 4-0 on the season for the Ducks, and has posted a dazzling 2.52 ERA – which ranks third in the Atlantic League. Last time out, Brownell threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Bridgeport Bluefish on June 3, striking out six, walking one and getting his 50th win as a Duck. The franchise’s all-time winningest pitcher is working on a streak of three straight starts with at least seven innings pitched.

The Bluefish roll with Cory Riordan in the series opener, making his ninth start of the year. The 6-4 righty is 3-2 with a 3.65 ERA on the season for Bridgeport this year. Riordan also has accomplished the rare-for-a-pitcher feat of a .500 batting average and has collected 3 RBIs in four at-bats. In his last start on June 2 against the Ducks, Riordan allowed two runs (one earned) in six innings, and getting the win in a 5-2 Bluefish win.

Game 44: Ducks at Bluefish

IMG_8673

GAME TIME/LOCATION: 1:12 p.m. at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard (Bridgeport, Conn.)

TODAY’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (21-22) look to complete a series win by taking three of four games against the cross-sound rival Bridgeport Bluefish (24-20). The Ducks currently lead the Ferry Cup Series four games to two and have taken two of three this weekend. Long Island remains six games behind the Somerset Patriots for first place in the Liberty Division standings and two and a half games in back of Bridgeport. The Bluefish currently sit three and a half games out of first place.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Ducks put together their best offensive performance of the season, tying a season-high with 10 runs and setting a new high this year with 16 hits as they routed the Bluefish 10-1.

Long Island scored early and often against Bridgeport starter and defending Atlantic League Pitcher of the Year Jonathan Albaladejo. Lew Ford drove in Anthony Vega with an RBI groundout in the first inning, and Delta Cleary Jr. plated Alex Burg with an RBI single in the second inning to give the Flock an early 2-0 lead.

The Ducks broke the game open with a pair of three-run innings in the fourth and fifth to knock Albaladejo out of the game. In the fourth, Giovanny Alfonzo picked up an RBI single to score Burg, and Vega delivered a two-out, two-run single up the middle. The following inning, Cleary Jr. lifted a sacrifice fly to center that scored Angelo Songco, and Alfonzo came through with a two-out, two-run single to center that ended Albaladejo’s evening.

Two more runs came home in the sixth inning against reliever Alex Burgos to round out Long Island’s scoring for the night. After a pair of walks, Burg picked up his fourth hit of the game with a two-out RBI single to left that scored Vega. Marc Krauss followed with an RBI single to left of his own that scored Songco and made it a 10-0 ballgame.

Meanwhile, John Brownell turned in his third consecutive quality start and defeated the Bluefish for the second time in less than two weeks. The right-hander limited Bridgeport to just one run on eight hits and a walk over seven innings and struck out six batters. He gave up just three singles, only two to the outfield, over the first five innings, but surrendered three singles in the sixth including an RBI base hit from Jonathan Galvez for Bridgeport’s lone run. He yielded two more singles in the seventh but got D’Arby Myers to fly out to center for the final out.

Jim Fuller came on in relief and pitched a scoreless eighth inning, yielding just a walk while striking out two. Zac Treece then twirled a scoreless ninth inning, helped out by two incredible diving stops to either side of him by second baseman Zach Goldstein.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks will hand the ball to Matt Larkins (0-4, 6.18 ERA) in the series finale. The right-hander has looked much stronger in his past two starts, allowing just 11 innings of work between them (2.45 ERA). He took a no-decision on Tuesday night in Long Island’s 3-2 11-inning victory over the Skeeters, giving up one run on four hits and four walks over a season-high six innings of work while striking out a season-high six batters. The second-year Duck faced the Bridgeport on May 24 at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard, and though he suffered the loss in game one of a doubleheader, he yielded just two runs on five hits over five innings and struck out two without walking a batter. Overall, Larkins has walked just 12 batters this season while striking out 26 in 32 innings over eight games (seven starts).

Chris Rearick (3-1, 3.68 ERA) will look to salvage a split of the four-game set for the Bluefish. The southpaw has won three consecutive starts, allowing just four runs in 17 innings during that span (2.12 ERA). He last pitched on Tuesday at home against the New Britain Bees and threw six innings of one-run ball, giving up just two hits and two walks while striking out eight batters. The Texas resident opposed Larkins in game one of the twin bill on May 24 and stymied the Ducks’ offense, firing six scoreless frames and yielding just four hits and a walk while striking out a season-high 10 batters. Rearick ranks second in the Atlantic League with 48 strikeouts this year, trailing teammate Cory Riordan by just one.

Game 39: Ducks vs. Skeeters

DE6I0831.JPG

With the veteran presence of Lew Ford, the Ducks look to make it three wins in a row tonight.

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (19-19) resume their three-game series with the Sugar Land Skeeters (19-20) after a thrilling waddle-off win Tuesday night. Tonight’s skirmish will be the second time out of 20 scheduled contests that these clubs have faced each other during the 2017 season.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks scored their second consecutive waddle-off win 3-2 over the Sugar Land Skeeters in 11 innings Tuesday night at Bethpage Ballpark.

With Marc Krauss at third after a two-base throwing error from Skeeters catcher Albert Cordero, Giovanny Alfonzo hit a dribbler up the third base line that went for a game-winning infield single.

The Skeeters kicked off the scoring in the top of the first against Ducks starting pitcher Matt Larkins, taking an early 1-0 lead on an RBI single from Hector Olivera.

After the rocky start to the game, the righty settled in and turned in a quality start. Larkins tossed six innings allowing just the one run on four hits, walking four but striking out six. He got no decision.

Sugar Land extended their lead to 2-0 in the top of the seventh against Zac Treece and Jim Fuller when Andy Wilkins doubled to centerfield on a ball that Delta Cleary Jr. lost above the lights.

In the bottom of the eighth, the Ducks finally got on the board after threatening several times throughout the game. Jordan Pacheco walked, stole second base and scored on an Alfonzo single to cut the Skeeters lead to 2-1.

After Rob Rogers held the score at 2-1 with a scoreless inning of relief in the top of the ninth, Krauss blasted a solo home run to centerfield in the bottom of the frame to tie the game at two.

Krauss led off the bottom of the 11th by drawing a walk from Sean Gleason. With two outs, Cordero attempted to back pick on Krauss at first and the throw went wild up the right field line and the runner advanced to third.

On the next pitch Alfonzo tapped a 2-2 offering up the third base line that Bryan Pounds couldn’t field cleanly and Krauss scored the winning tally.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks call on southpaw Eury De La Rosa to make his first start of the season tonight. In six relief appearances this year, De La Rosa owns a 1-0 record with a 2.16 ERA. The diminutive port paw’s last outing came on May 27, where he threw three scoreless innings from the bullpen against the Lancaster Barnstormers. This marks the first time this season that De La Rosa will face the Skeeters. He threw five scoreless innings across three appearances against Sugar Land in 2016.

Sugar Land sends righty Michael Nix to the bump, making his 10th appearance of the year and eighth overall start. Nix, a Skeeter since 2012, has a 2-5 record with a 4.29 ERA this season, and has allowed 34 hits in 35.2 innings pitched. The former Auburn Tiger last appeared on May 27 at York, allowing two runs on three hits in an inning of work. Tonight will be the first time that Nix faces the Ducks since September 28, when the righty threw six shutout innings and got the win in Game Two of the 2016 Atlantic League Championship Series.
