Game 62: Ducks at Skeeters

IMG_8945

GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:05 p.m. CDT at Constellation Field (Sugar Land, Texas)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (31-30) take on the Sugar Land Skeeters (26-35) in game two of a seven-game series. Long Island has now won two of their past three games after taking the opener on Friday, and Sugar Land has now lost four consecutive games dating back to game two of Tuesday’s doubleheader. Both teams are in third place in their respective division, with the Ducks sitting six games in back of first in the Liberty Division and the Skeeters trailing the Blue Crabs by nine and a half games in the Freedom Division. The season series between the teams is tied at two.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: A pair of multi-run innings and a strong start from Rafael Perez led the Ducks to a 5-1 win on Friday night in Texas.

Long Island got their night started in the second inning against Sugar Land starter Jake Hale (4-2). After retiring the first five batters he faced, Hale allowed back-to-back two-out singles to Elmer Reyes and Ruben Gotay. That set the stage for Giovanny Alfonzo, who connected on a two-run double down the right field line.

It remained 2-0 until the top of the sixth inning when the first four Ducks batters picked up hits off of Hale to knock him out of the game. After back-to-back singles by Lew Ford and Angelo Songco, Alex Burg grounded an RBI double down the left field line and Reyes drove a two-run single to left-center. Hale finished with five runs and nine hits allowed in five innings of work.

Meanwhile, Perez (5-2) cruised over the first five innings of the ballgame, retiring 15 of the first 16 batters he faced. His only blemish in that time was a single by Derek Miller in the third. However, he seemed to run out of gas on a hot and humid night in the sixth. Perez allowed back-to-back singles to open the frame and nearly surrendered home runs to both Josh Prince and Anthony Giansanti. However, both balls went just foul down the left field line. Perez retired both but walked Travis Scott with two outs, and that was followed by a passed ball that scored Hector Olivera.

After a walk to Kevin Ahrens that brought the tying run to the plate, Kevin Baez summoned Rob Rogers from the bullpen. The Long Island native got Bryan Pounds to hit into a force out at third on the first pitch he threw to end the threat. Rogers would then pitch back-to-back scoreless innings in the seventh and eighth to keep the 5-1 lead intact. Amalio Diaz got into some trouble in the ninth, allowing a walk and a single to begin the frame. However, he rebounded to strike out the side and seal the win.

ON THE MOUND: Saturday night will feature a pair of former teammates and two-time Atlantic League champions on the mound. John Brownell (4-1, 3.15 ERA) will take the baseball for the Ducks. The right-hander got off to a rough start on Monday night, surrendering six runs in three and two-thirds innings against the Patriots before rain postponed the game and erased the stats. Prior to Monday, he allowed four earned runs in back-to-back starts on June 9 against Bridgeport and June 14 at Somerset, with the Ducks dropping both games. Brownell will be making his first start against the Skeeters this season but has faced them 16 times in his career, compiling an 11-3 record and a 2.48 ERA.

On the other side will be Bobby Blevins (4-3, 4.63 ERA), who spent time with the Ducks from 2012-16 and won championships with Brownell in the first two seasons. The righty took a no-decision his last time out, surrendering three unearned runs on five hits and a walk. He also struck out three in Sugar Land’s 7-6 loss at Bridgeport on Sunday, June 18. Blevins lost his two outings prior to that as well and has compiled a 5.29 ERA in his last three outings (10 ER in 17 innings). The Briarcliff, N.Y. native defeated the Flock in his first matchup with his former team on June 1 at Bethpage Ballpark, tossing six scoreless innings and yielding five hits and two walks with six strikeouts.

Game 56: Ducks at Barnstormers

img_2033.jpgGAME TIME/LOCATION: 2:00 p.m. at Clipper Magazine Stadium (Lancaster, Pa.)

TODAY’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (27-28) take on the Lancaster Barnstormers (30-25) to complete a three-game series at Clipper Magazine Stadium this afternoon. The Barnstormers have won the first two games of this series, and have an impressive 5-1 lead in the overall season series. This is the last time that the Ducks and Barnstormers will meet in the first half, but the clubs have 13 scheduled contests in the second half of the season.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 10-0 on Saturday night at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

The Barnstormers got off to a fast start in the bottom of the first, taking the lead two batters in when Blake Gailen connected on a solo home run off Dennis O’Grady. Two batters later, K.C. Hobson cracked a two-run shot and a Garrett Weber RBI double later in the frame ran the Barnstormers lead to 4-0.

In the bottom of the second, Lancaster took a 5-0 lead when Rico Noel doubled and scored on a Gailen single. A fifth-inning solo homer from Hobson ran the advantage to 6-0.

The rout was on in the bottom of the sixth, when the Barnstormers sent 10 batters to the plate and scored four runs to extend a 10-0 advantage. O’Grady (2-3) faced three batters in the inning without recording an out, and ultimately got the loss in going five-plus innings and allowing nine runs on 12 hits.

The Ducks, meanwhile, loaded the bases against Rommie Lewis in the third but could not score, and loaded them again the eighth against reliever Kevin Munson, but again could not score.

After Eury De La Rosa allowed three inherited runners to score in the sixth as well as a run of his own, Tyler Levine threw a scoreless seventh, and Fehlandt Lentini pitched a 1-2-3 eighth, including striking out Hobson.

Lew Ford and Elmer Reyes had two hits each for Long Island, with Reyes’ eighth-inning double representing the only extra-base hit the club recorded.

ON THE MOUND: Long Island looks to salvage the final game of the series behind ace left-hander Rafael Perez. He makes his 10th start of the season this afternoon, and sports a 4-2 record with a 3.80 ERA. The former big-leaguer had a rough outing his last time out on June 13 against the Somerset Patriots, allowing seven runs (five earned) on nine hits in just 3.2 innings, but has been great this year. Removing the nine runs in eight innings that the southpaw has allowed to Somerset this season, his ERA drops down to 2.43. This will be Perez’ first start against Lancaster this season.

The Barnstormers look for the sweep behind lefty and former Duck Jarret Leverett, who makes his 10th start on the season. He is 4-1 with a 5.03 ERA, and earned a win over Long Island on May 27 in his only other start against the Ducks this season. In that outing Leverett allowed four runs on six hits in five innings, but got the win in a 6-4 Barnstormer triumph. Last time out on June 13, the lefty allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits in 6.2 innings at Bridgeport, but got hung with his first loss of the season.

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 51: Ducks at Patriots

Alfonzo Waddle Off (9).JPG

The Ducks scored a pair of waddle-off victories over the Patriots in the last installment of their season series in May at Bethpage Ballpark. Giovanny Alfonzo was responsible for both of the game-winning plays.

GAME TIME/LOCATION: 7:05 p.m. at TD Bank Ballpark (Bridgewater, N.J.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (26-24) hit the road to begin a pivotal three-game series with the Liberty Division-leading Somerset Patriots (30-20) tonight. The Ducks and Patriots are separated by four games in the standings and will play each other seven more times before the end of the first half. The Ducks recently swept a three-game set with the Patriots at Bethpage Ballpark in May.

SUNDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks used a five-run outburst in the sixth inning to blow past the Bridgeport Bluefish 8-1 Sunday afternoon at Bethpage Ballpark.

The game was scoreless until the top of the fifth, when Dennis O’Grady allowed a one-out triple to Andrew Lambo. Lambo scored on a wild pitch to give the Bluefish a 1-0 lead in the middle innings.

O’Grady allowed just the one run in five innings of work, scattering four hits and three walks while striking out five and getting no decision. Eury De La Rosa allowed a two-out double to Sean Burroughs in the sixth, but threw a scoreless inning.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Ducks offense exploded for a five-spot to take a lead they would never surrender. Danny Burawa walked  the only three batters he faced to load the bases with nobody out, before Brian Moran struck out Angelo Songco for the first out.

Zac Grotz then came in and promptly allowed Jordan Pacheco to poke a two-run single through the right side of the infield. Elmer Reyes followed with an RBI single, and Marc Krauss broke the game open with a two-run double to extend the Long Island lead to 5-1.

Zac Treece and Patrick Crider turned in scoreless frames of relief in the seventh and eighth innings, and homers from Songco and Krauss in the bottom of the eighth plated three more runs for the Ducks.

Rob Rogers worked around an infield single in the ninth to close out the 8-1 win in a non-save situation.

ON THE MOUND: Long Island opens the series by sending southpaw Rafael Perez to the slab, making his ninth start of the season. The former big leaguer is 4-1 with a 3.05 ERA on the year, and has struck out 35 and walked just eight in 41.1 innings pitched. In his last start on June 8 at New Britain, Perez threw six innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits, while striking out three and not issuing a walk. In his last three starts, the lefty has a 0.60 ERA (1 ER/15.0 IP), and has struck out 14 and walked just two, going 2-0. That includes a start against Somerset on May 19 at Bethpage Ballpark, where he went five scoreless innings, striking out six.

The Patriots roll with Rick Teasley, making his 10th appearance of the season and sixth start overall. The port paw is 4-1 on the season with a 2.21 ERA and has struck out 28 and walked nine in 44.2 innings pitched this season. In his last start on June 7 against Bridgeport, Teasley allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits in 7.2 innings, getting the win in a 7-2 Patriots victory. In two appearances against the Ducks this season, Teasley sports a 1.54 ERA (2 ER/11.2 IP) and has allowed six hits while striking out 11 and not walking a batter.
