Game 32: Ducks vs. Bees

The Ducks look to rebound after dropping the series opener to the New Britain Bees

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks and New Britain Bees continue their three-game series on Saturday. This will be the fifth of 18 scheduled meetings between the Ducks and Bees this season and the 45th all-time meeting between the two teams. Long Island trails New Britain by two games all-time with a 21-23 record against the Bees, and won the first 2018 series two games to one. Long Island owns a 12-9 record when welcoming the Bees to Bethpage Ballpark. The Ducks bring a 15-16 record to Friday’s game, four and a half games back of the Somerset Patriots for the Liberty Division lead, while New Britain holds a 13-19 record, sitting in third place in the Liberty Division.

LAST GAME RECAP:

The Bees offense exploded for 15 runs in the series opener at Bethpage Ballpark, leading to a 15-6 loss for the Flock.

The Ducks did score first after a Taylor Ard sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the first inning. However, the Bees hit a pair of longballs in the second inning to make the score 6-1.

The Ducks put runs on the board in each inning from the third to the sixth, but it was not enough to cut into the deficit. Jordany Valdespin was 2-4 with a double and scored three times, Emilio Bonifacio was 2-4 as well and drove in a pair of runs, and Daniel Fields added his first home run as a Duck in a 2-5 performance.

John Brownell took the loss, allowing eight runs on nine hits through just two and two-thirds innings, while Kyle Simon earned the win despite allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits over six innings.

ON THE MOUND:

Jake Dunning takes the mound against the Bees tonight, looking to bounce back from a rough start against Somerset in his last outing on Saturday. The righty allowed eight runs on seven hits and a walk before exiting with one out in the third inning. This season, the former major leaguer has gone 15 and one-third innings with a 1-3 record, owning a 8.80 ERA and striking out eight. Dunning started the season as a reliever, but has moved to a starting role in the absence of Andrew Barbosa.

Rainy Lara will start against the Ducks tonight, making his seventh appearance and fifth start of the season. The former Bridgeport Bluefish pitcher went six innings against the Sugar Land Skeeters in his last outing, surrendering two runs on seven hits and earning the victory. Lara is 2-2 this season with a 3.66 ERA, pitching 27 innings and striking out 16. The Dominican Republic native was an Atlantic League All-Star last season, and pitched at the Triple-A level with the New York Mets organization in both 2015 and 2016.

Game 27: Ducks vs. Patriots

The Ducks attempt to avoid the sweep against the Somerset Patriots on Sunday afternoon

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

1:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TODAY’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks aim to take a game off the Patriots in the series finale on Memorial Day Weekend. Long Island comes in at an even 13-13 on the year, five games behind 17-7 Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division. This will be the ninth of 18 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 354th all-time meeting. The Patriots are winning the all-time series by just three games, 178-175, and are up 6-2 on the Ducks in 2018. However, the Ducks hold a 92-85 advantage against Somerset at Bethpage Ballpark.

SATURDAY’S RECAP: 

The Ducks recorded their first past-capacity crowd of the season last night, with an attendance of 6,315. Unfortunately, the game was all Somerset from beginning to end, as the Ducks fell 10-0.

The Patriots tagged Ducks starter Jake Dunning for eight runs, scoring four in both the second and third. Somerset added runs in the fourth and seventh to bring the score to its final of 10-0.

David Kubiak earned the win for the Patriots, going five scoreless innings in his season debut along with six strikeouts. Dunning took the loss with eight earned runs over two and one-third innings on seven hits and a walk. Ramon Cabrera led the Ducks offense with a pair of hits.

SATURDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

Jair Jurrjens will take the mound for the Ducks tonight. The former National League All-Star fell to 1-2 in his last start, allowing five runs in six innings and striking out two in the Ducks’ 5-3 loss to the Sugar Land Skeeters. Jurrjens now carries a 6.18 ERA into his start against the Patriots after skipping his last start due to shoulder discomfort.

Trevor Foss starts for the Patriots, holding a 1-1 record with a 2.54 ERA over four starts this season. Foss dealt five shutout innings against the Sugar Land Skeeters in his last outing for his first win of the season. Foss spent last season with the Washington Wild Things of the Frontier League, earning All-Star honors.

Game 26: Ducks vs. Patriots

The Ducks look to even up the series against the Patriots on Saturday

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks will attempt to undo last night’s tough loss to the Patriots. Long Island comes in at 13-12 on the year, four games behind 16-7 Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division. This will be the eighth of 18 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 353rd all-time meeting. The Patriots are winning the all-time series by just two games, 177-175, and are up 5-2 on the Ducks in 2018. However, the Ducks hold a 92-84 advantage against Somerset at Bethpage Ballpark.

FRIDAY’S RECAP: 

Last night’s pitching matchup was the highlight of last night’s game, with eight hits between the two teams, and both starters going deep into the ballgame.

The Ducks faced an early deficit after an Aaron Dudley sacrifice fly in the first inning. However, the lead was erased immediately as Jordany Valdespin homered to kick off the Ducks offense in their first at-bat of the ballgame. Both offenses were held off the board until the sixth inning when Endy Chavez drove in Julio Borbon with a double to give Somerset a 2-1 lead.

With no scoring occurring for the remainder of the game, the Patriots took home their fifth one-run win over the Ducks this year. John Brownell took the loss despite going seven innings and allowing two runs on five hits. Cory Riordan pitched a gem for the Patriots, dealing eight innings of one-run ball, allowing three hits.

FRIDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

Jake Dunning takes the mound against the Patriots tonight, looking to bounce back from a tough start against Somerset in his last outing on Sunday. The righty went just three innings allowing four runs on five hits and four walks in a 5-4 loss. This season, the former major leaguer has gone 13 innings with a 1-2 record, owning a 4.84 ERA and striking out eight. Dunning started the season as a reliever, but has moved to a starting role in the absence of Andrew Barbosa.

David Kubiak will make his season debut on the other side after spending last year with the Patriots. The New York native pitched to a 5-10 record over 21 appearances (18 starts) with a 3.83 ERA, striking out 117 batters to 34 walks, earning an All-Star selection last season. Kubiak made three appearances at Double-A in the New York Yankees organization in 2016 between stints with the Bridgeport Bluefish.

Game 22: Ducks vs. Road Warriors

The Ducks look to start another sweep of the Road Warriors on Tuesday

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks will battle the Road Warriors for the second week in a row starting on Tuesday. Long Island comes in at 12-9 on the year, two games behind Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division, while the Road Warriors are 4-18, seated at the bottom of the Liberty Division and on a 12-game losing streak. After the Ducks swept the Road Warriors last week, this will be the fourth of 19 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 112th all-time meeting. The Ducks have dominated the series, winning 94 of 111 games, including a 17-1 record against the Road Warriors in their last year of action, 2011.

SUNDAY’S RECAP: 

Following an offensive outburst on Saturday in which the Ducks totaled 14 hits and six runs, Long Island was in a prime position to take series from their rival in Somerset on Sunday afternoon. Early runs from the Patriots spoiled the Flock’s chances despite a ninth-inning Ducks rally.

The first run for the Patriots came across in the second inning when a David Washington error scored Alex Castellanos from second base. Somerset tacked on three more in the third inning after an RBI single from Castellanos, and a two-run double with the bases loaded by Mike Fransoso.

Travis Snider cut the lead in half with one swing in the fourth, hitting a two-run home run, his second in as many games. Somerset got an insurance run when Adam Weisenburger hit a solo shot in the sixth frame.

Facing a 5-2 deficit in the ninth inning, Lew Ford kicked things off by reaching base on an error. Cody Puckett drove him in with his third hit of the ballgame, a double to left field. Ramon Cabrera then earned his first RBI with Long Island, grounding out to bring the Ducks within one. With one out and a man on third, the final two batters were unfortunately set down for a 5-4 final score.

Jake Dunning was hit with the loss, going just three innings and allowing four runs on five hits and four walks. Starter Aaron Laffey earned his second straight win for the Patriots. While he was tagged for seven hits, only two baserunners scored through his five and one-third innings of work.

SUNDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

Matt Larkins will make his second consecutive start against the Road Warriors tonight. The right-hander went six innings for the first time this season in game one of last Thursday’s doubleheader against the Road Warriors, allowing one run on seven hits, striking out six, and bringing his ERA down to 2.81 in the process. That ERA goes along with a 1-0 record and 16 strikeouts to six walks over 16 innings of work thus far. The 29-year-old has given up three earned runs or less in each of his three starts. Larkins was the Ducks leader in strikeouts (139), innings pitched (156.0) and complete games (4) as the workhorse of the rotation in his very successful 2017 campaign.

Giovanni Soto takes the mound against the Ducks after starting opposite Larkins last Thursday. The former big leaguer went five and two-thirds innings his last time out, allowing four runs on three hits and a walk, striking out seven. However, he was perfect through five innings before surrendering all four of his runs in the sixth, including a three-run homer by Dan Lyons. So far, Soto has a 5.21 ERA over 19 innings of work, striking out 20 batters while walking nine. The Puerto Rican lefty reached the Major Leagues with the Cleveland Indians in 2015, appearing in six games without allowing a run.

Games 17 & 18: Ducks vs. Road Warriors

The Ducks play their first doubleheader of the year against the Road Warriors

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks take on the Road Warriors in a single admission doubleheader to wrap up a three-game series. Long Island won the series opener, 3-2, on Tuesday night before Wednesday’s game was postponed due to inclement weather. The Ducks come in at 9-7 on the year, two games behind Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division, while the Road Warriors are 4-13, seated at the bottom of the Liberty Division. This will be the second and third of 19 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 110th and 111th all-time meetings. The Ducks have dominated the series, winning 92 of 109 games, including a 17-1 record against the Road Warriors in their last year of action, 2011.

TUESDAY’S RECAP: 

No big hits were necessary for the Ducks to win yesterday, tallying just one extra-base hit and 11 singles to score three runs against the Road Warriors.

The Road Warriors jumped on starter Jake Dunning right out of the gate with two hits and a hit batter to take a 1-0 lead in the first. Dunning bounced back more than effectively with four no-hit innings after the rough first.

Jordany Valdespin used his speed to tie the game at one, stealing second then advancing to third after the pitch got away from catcher AJ Jimenez. A grounder from Emilio Bonifacio advanced the second baseman another 90 feet to score the run. A bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Dan Lyons plated Cody Puckett in the next inning to give the Ducks the lead. David Washington rounded out the scoring with a hard-hit ball to right field to score Bonifacio in the seventh inning.

The incredible streak by Long Island’s bullpen of 18 consecutive innings came to end in the eighth inning after a line drive hit off of Vinnie Pestano’s glove to bring in a run from third. With a one-run lead, Francisco Rodriguez continued his great run with the Ducks, pitching a scoreless ninth inning and earning his third save.

Dunning earned the win, pitching five innings of one-run ball. Kelvin Villa took the loss, allowing nine hits and two runs over five and one-third innings.

TUESDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

Matt Larkins will make his first start at Bethpage Ballpark in 2018 during game one of the twin bill. The right-hander went five innings in his last outing on May 9 against the New Britain Bees, allowing two runs (one earned) and striking out seven batters. Larkins was the Ducks leader in strikeouts (139), innings pitched (156.0) and complete games (4) as the workhorse of the rotation in his very successful 2017 campaign. Larkins first joined the Ducks in 2016 following a cross-league trade with the Lincoln Saltdogs of the American Association. The California native was among Lincoln’s top-three in wins (7), ERA (3.69), and innings pitched (124.1) that season.

Giovanni Soto takes the mound against the Ducks in his fourth career start in the Atlantic League. So far, Soto has a 4.73 ERA over 13.1 innings of work. Soto went four innings in his last outing on May 9 against Somerset, allowing two runs on five hits. The Puerto Rican lefty reached the Major Leagues with the Cleveland Indians in 2015, appearing in six games without allowing a run.

Game two will feature Bennett Parry on the mound for Long Island. The southpaw comes in with a 1-0 record and a 4.50 ERA over two starts. His most recent outing came a week ago tonight in New Britain, where he earned the victory over the Bees. The San Diego native tossed five innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits and three walks while striking out six. Parry is in his first season with the Ducks after playing with Lincoln over the past two years. He compiled a 4-2 record with a 2.16 ERA over 17 starts with the Saltdogs.

Meanwhile, the Road Warriors will send new addition Brandon Bargas to the rubber. The southpaw was signed by the club on Thursday and will pitch professionally for the first time since 2016. That season, he went 0-2 with an 8.34 ERA over five starts with the Florence Freedom of the Frontier League, allowing 16 walks in 22 and two-thirds innings. Prior to that, the Oklahoma native spent 2015 with the Schaumburg Boomers of the Frontier League and both 2013 and 2014 with the Grand Prairie AirHogs of the American Association. The 27-year-old played collegiately at the University of Oklahoma and Rogers State University.
