Game 78: Ducks vs. Patriots

Giovanny Alfonzo (2)GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (39-38, 3-4) return to action out of the Atlantic League All-Star break and host the Somerset Patriots (44-32, 2-4) Friday night. The Ducks currently sit in third place on the Liberty Division standings, only one game behind the Bridgeport Bluefish for first place in the second half standings, while the Patriots sit in last, 1.5 games back.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 4-3 Sunday afternoon in the finale of a three-game series at Regency Furniture Stadium.

The Ducks scored two pitches into the game when Fehlandt Lentini crushed a Brian Grening fastball over the wall in left for a leadoff home run. Two batters later, Lew Ford deposited a pitch over the wall in left center for Long Island’s second homer of the frame, and Marc Krauss added a third round-tripper to extend a 3-0 lead.

Southern Maryland responded in the bottom of the second against John Brownell, with Brian Bistagne connecting for a two-run double to narrow the gap to 3-2. The Blue Crabs tied the game at three in the bottom of the third on a Cory Vaughn sacrifice fly.

In the top of the fifth the Ducks regained the lead when Lentini legged out an infield single, and a throwing error allowed him to advance to third. Delta Cleary Jr. lifted a sacrifice fly to center to score Lentini and give Long Island a 4-3 edge.

Brownell (7-1) threw his fourth-straight quality start, and his 10th overall on the season. The righty tossed seven innings, allowing three runs on seven hits, walking four and striking out seven. Grening (7-3) took the loss after allowing four runs (three earned) on 10 hits in eight innings. David Aardsma tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning to lock down his seventh save of the season.

Lentini led the Ducks by going 3-for-5 with a home run, an RBI and two runs scored.

ON THE MOUND: Matt Larkins gets the ball for the Ducks in the first game out of the break, looking to keep his stretch of strong pitching alive. In his last three starts, Larkins is 1-0 with a 1.17 ERA (3 ER/23 IP), and has allowed just 13 hits and has a 21:4 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Overall, the right-hander is 3-6 with a 4.00 ERA in 15 appearances (14 starts) this season. Larkins is enjoying a breakout season, striking out a career-high 7.8 batters per nine innings this year, while allowing fewer hits than he has in any other year of his six-year career.

He will be opposed by left-hander Efrain Nieves, who will be making just his fifth appearance and second start of the year. The second-year Patriot wis 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA in a small sample this season, and has walked eight batters and struck out four in eight innings pitched. In his last outing on July 7, Nieves allowed five runs (three earned) on four hits while walking four in three innings against the Sugar Land Skeeters in a 12-0 loss.

Game 76: Ducks at Blue Crabs

IMG_2079GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium (Waldorf, Md.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (38-37, 2-3) continue their three-game series tonight against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (41-32, 3-1). The Ducks look to rebound from a tough loss Friday night, a tight contest which resulted in a last at-bat win for the Blue Crabs. Including tonight’s game, there are only two games remaining before the 2017 Atlantic League All-Star Game.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks fell to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 5-4 Friday night at Regency Furniture Stadium in the opener of a three-game series.

Angelo Songco started the scoring for the Ducks in the top of the first by lifting a sacrifice fly to the warning track in right field to score Fehlandt Lentini. Long Island loaded the bases later in the frame, but Southern Maryland starter Daryl Thompson was able to limit the damage.

In the bottom of the first the Blue Crabs got even against Ducks starter Dennis O’Grady, plating a run on a sacrifice fly by Zach Wilson.

The Ducks broke the tie in the top of the sixth, erupting for three runs against Thompson. With two outs, Giovanny Alfonzo lined a single into centerfield to score Marc Krauss, and then Dan Lyons doubled to left to score two more to hand Long Island a 4-1 lead.

Southern Maryland evened the ledger in the bottom of the sixth, responding for three runs against O’Grady, highlighted by a two-run single from Zach Cone.

After a 43-minute rain delay to start the top of the eighth inning the Blue Crabs took the lead for good in the bottom of the eighth, plating an unearned run against Patrick Crider (0-5) to take a 5-4 lead. Cody Eppley worked around a two-out single from Quintin Berry in the top of the ninth to seal his 22nd save of the year and make a winner of Craig Stem (1-1).

Neither starter factored into the decision. O’Grady allowed four runs on six hits in 5.1 innings, walking two and striking out one. Thompson yielded four runs (one earned) on nine hits in six frames, walking one and striking out four.

Berry went 3-for-5 with a stolen base and Krauss added a 2-for-3 day with a walk and a run scored to lead the Ducks on offense.

ON THE MOUND: Left-handed pitcher Rafael Perez takes the mound for the Ducks in the middle game of the three-game series, making his 14th start of the season. Perez is 5-4 with a 3.84 ERA on the season, and has a 49:13 K:BB ratio in 68.0 innings. The southpaw has lost his last two starts as the Ducks have been shutout in both of them, including in his last outing on July 3 against Lancaster. Perez allowed four runs on six hits in five innings in a 5-0 Barnstormers triumph. The lefty has made one start against Southern Maryland this year, resulting in no decision on April 21, where Perez allowed three runs in three innings in his first appearance of the year.

Righty Drew Hayes gets the call for the Blue Crabs to make his 11th start of the season. The former Cincinnati Reds hurler is 3-3 with a 4.70 ERA on the season, and has struck out 39 and walked 21 in 51.2 innings this season. The former Vanderbilt Commodore spent seven years in the Reds system and is in his first year in the Atlantic League with Southern Maryland in 2017. In his last start against Long Island on July 2, Hayes was beat up for six runs on five hits in three innings and got the loss in a 10-5 Ducks win.

Game 75: Ducks at Blue Crabs

IMG_8319

GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium (Waldorf, Md.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (38-36, 2-2) begin their final series before the All-Star break tonight against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (40-32, 2-1). The Ducks swept the last series against the Blue Crabs this past weekend at Bethpage Ballpark, temporarily preventing the club from clinching the Freedom Division First Half Championship.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 7-6 on Thursday night in the finale of a four-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

The Ducks dented the scoreboard first with four runs in the second inning off of Barnstormers starter Tommy Shirley. Jordan Pacheco’s RBI double, Giovanny Alfonzo’s RBI single and a two-run double by Fehlandt Lentini highlighted the scoring.

Lancaster rallied back to tie the game with a run in the fourth and three in the fifth off of Ducks starter Alfredo Simon. A run-scoring wild pitch, RBI doubles by Vladimir Frias and Caleb Gindl and an RBI triple by Tyler Clark did the damage.

Lew Ford put the Ducks back in front at 5-4 with a leadoff solo home run to left in the bottom of the fifth. A run-scoring fielder’s choice off the bat of Lastings Milledge in the sixth tied the game once again. Long Island took a 6-5 lead in the bottom of the eighth on Pacheco’s RBI infield single to third base. However, Gindl’s two-run homer to right in the ninth gave the Barnstormers the lead for good.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Simon pitched four and two-thirds innings, yielding four runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Shirley lasted three innings, giving up four runs on five hits and three walks with one strikeout. Scott Shuman (2-0) collected the win despite allowing a run on two hits and a walk in the eighth. Amalio Diaz (2-1) suffered the loss, surrendering two runs on two hits while striking out four in an inning and two-thirds. Anthony Carter picked up his 16th save with a scoreless ninth inning.

Five different Ducks had two hits apiece to lead the offense. Pacheco and Lentini each drove in two runs.

ON THE MOUND: Dennis O’Grady takes the mound for the Ducks in the series opener, making his 16th appearance and 12th start of the season. Overall, the right-hander is 4-5 with a 5.05 ERA for the Ducks, and has struck out 58 and walked 37 in 67.2 innings. O’Grady has struggled with command this year, walking at least two batters in 10 of his 11 starts, and at least three in eight. Last time out against Southern Maryland on July 2, the gritty righty threw 6.2 innings, allowing five runs on eight hits, striking out one and walking two while getting the win.

Meanwhile, Daryl Thompson gets the nod for Southern Maryland after being pushed back a day owing to a rain out yesterday. The All-Star righty is 5-4 with a 3.91 ERA, and in 89.2 innings, has struck out 73 and walked just 14. Last time out, Thompson allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings at Long Island on July 1, but got no decision in a 10-8 Ducks victory. In two starts against the Ducks this year, Thompson is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA.

Game 73: Ducks vs. Barnstormers

DE6I0705GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (37-35, 1-1) continue their four-game series with the Lancaster Barnstormers (39-32, 1-1) after an offensive explosion on Independence Day. This is the third matchup between the Ducks and Barnstormers in the second half of the season, who will play 13 times in the second half.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Lancaster Barnstormers 9-3 on Tuesday night before a past-capacity crowd of 7,248, the largest crowd of the season at Bethpage Ballpark.

Long Island took advantage of three Barnstormers miscues in the second inning to take a 2-0 lead. A throwing error by Lancaster starter Jarret Leverett and a fielding error by third baseman Garrett Weber did the damage. Another run in the third inning on Angelo Songco’s sacrifice fly to center field stretched the lead to three.

The Barnstormers closed to within one in the third inning on a solo home run to right by Caleb Gindl and an RBI single to left by Lastings Milledge off of Ducks starter John Brownell. However, Dan Lyons launched a two-run homer to left in the bottom of the frame, restoring the lead to three at 5-2.

Long Island blew the game open with a four-run fifth inning. Ruben Gotay’s three-run home run down the left field line and a run-scoring error off the bat of Delta Cleary Jr. highlighted the frame. Weber lifted a sac fly to right in the sixth to trim Lancaster’s deficit to 9-3, but Anderson De La Rosa flew out to leave the bases loaded.

Brownell (6-1) earned the win, tossing six innings of three-run ball, yielding five hits and three walks while striking out four. Leverett (4-4) suffered the loss, surrendering nine runs (seven earned) on 15 hits and a walk over four and one-third innings. Patrick Crider, Rob Rogers and David Aardsma combined to retire nine straight Barnstormers batters over the final three innings and struck out three.

Giovanny Alfonzo had four hits in four at bats to lead the Flock, and Fehlandt Lentini added three hits. Gotay finished with two hits, three RBI and two runs, while Lyons drove in two runs and scored twice.

ON THE MOUND: Long Island hands the ball to Matt Larkins to make his 15th appearance and 14th start of the season. Larkins is 2-6 with a 4.50 ERA this season and has struck out 60 and walked only 19 in 72.0 innings. The right-hander’s 7.5 K/9.0 IP ratio is the highest mark of his career, which he has impressively recorded while maintaining a steady walk rate with the rest of his career. In his last start on June 30 against Southern Maryland, Larkins got no decision after allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits in seven innings. The Ducks won the game 5-3, and Larkins struck out five and walked none. He has not faced the Barnstormers yet this season.

The Barnstormers will roll with former Baltimore Oriole Brad Bergesen, who will be making his 13th start of the year. So far, he is 4-5 with a 4.75 ERA and has a 51:18 K:BB ratio in 70.0 innings. The right-hander has allowed 83 hits and opponents are hitting .289 against him. In his last start on June 30 against Somerset, Bergesen was rocked for six runs on six hits in 4.2 innings, but got no decision in a 9-7 Lancaster victory. In his lone appearance against the Ducks on May 27, Bergesen threw five shutout innings and allowed just two hits in a 10-0 Barnstormers win.

Game 69: Ducks vs Blue Crabs

anthony-vega-2.jpgGAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (34-34) continue their three-game series with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (38-29) tonight at Bethpage Ballpark. The three-game series with the Blue Crabs represents the final three games of the first half of the 2017 season. Southern Maryland is in first place in the Freedom Division and has a magic number of three over Lancaster heading into Saturday’s action. Long Island has already been eliminated from Liberty Division first-half contention.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks came from behind in the bottom of the eighth to defeat the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 5-3 on Friday night in the opener of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

Southern Maryland opened the scoring in the top of the third inning on back-to-back doubles by Edwin Garcia and Jose Lozada off Ducks starter Matt Larkins. Long Island answered in the bottom of the frame when Fehlandt Lentini singled, went to third on an error by Blue Crabs starter Pat McCoy and scored on Elmer Reyes’ RBI single.

The Ducks took the lead in the fifth inning when Dan Lyons opened the inning with a double and came home on an RBI fielder’s choice from Reyes. However, the Blue Crabs took the lead back at 3-2 in the top of the sixth on a two-run single to right field by Devon Rodriguez.

Long Island jumped back in front for good when they sent eight men to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning. Alex Burg tied the game with a run-scoring groundout, Ruben Gotay put the Flock ahead with a two-out RBI double and Delta Cleary Jr. added an insurance run with an RBI single.

Larkins did not factor into the decision but pitched seven innings, yielding three runs (two earned) on eight hits while striking out five. Amalio Diaz (2-0) collected the victory after pitching a 1-2-3 inning in the eighth. McCoy (2-3) suffered the loss, surrendering four runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts in seven and one-third innings. David Aardsma earned his sixth save with a perfect ninth inning, striking out two.

Reyes, Angelo Songco and Giovanny Alfonzo each had two hits to lead the Flock.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks send Alfredo Simon to the mound to make his fourth start of the season for the club. The right-hander is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA in his first three outings of the season, and has struck out 10 and walked five in 11 innings. In his last start on June 26 at Sugar Land, Simon allowed seven runs on nine hits in two innings, getting the loss in a 10-4 Skeeters victory. “Big Pasta” was a National League All-Star in 2014 while pitching with the Cincinnati Reds.

The Blue Crabs roll with righty Daryl Thompson, who will be toeing the rubber for the 14th time this season. Thompson is 5-4 with a 4.02 ERA in 82.2 innings, recording 80 strikeouts and just 14 walks. Last time out on June 26 at Somerset, Thompson allowed four runs on 11 hits and got no decision in a 10-6 Patriots win. Thompson has faced the Ducks once this season, getting the win on April 23 by turning in six innings of one-run ball, striking out seven and allowing just four hits at Regency Furniture Stadium.
