Game 116: Ducks vs. Skeeters

Alex Burg (2)

Catcher Alex Burg’s RBI single in the 11th inning last night delivered the Ducks’ seventh waddle-off win of the season. The Ducks have won 17 of their last 19 games entering tonight.

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks (28-17; 64-51) continue their four-game series with the Sugar Land Skeeters (20-23; 50-63) on Wednesday night. The Ducks have won 17 of their last 19 games, and have a seven-game lead in the Liberty Division Second Half Standings over the Bridgeport Bluefish. The Skeeters enter tonight’s contest in third place in the Freedom Division, five games behind the first place York Revolution. Tonight marks the 16th matchup of the season between the two clubs, with the series slightly favoring the Ducks, 8-7. This series marks the final trip of the  2017 regular season for the Skeeters.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: 

The Long Island Ducks defeated the Sugar Land Skeeters 3-2 in 11 innings on Tuesday night in the second game of a four-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

Both sides traded zeroes for the first five innings of the ballgame. Long Island finally broke the scoreless deadlock in the sixth when Lew Ford doubled and Marc Krauss followed with a two-run home run to right field off Skeeters starter Bobby Blevins.

Sugar Land tied the game at two with single runs in the seventh and eighth against Ducks starter Matt Larkins. A solo homer to left-center by Caleb Ramsey and a fielding error which scored Wilfredo Rodriguez did the damage.

It remained even until the bottom of the 11th inning. A single to right-center by Ford and walks to Delta Cleary Jr. and Ruben Gotay loaded the bases with one out. Alex Burg followed with a two-strike single through the left side to score Ford with the winning run.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Larkins pitched eight innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out six. Blevins tossed six innings, yielding two runs on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts. Tyler Wilson (2-2) collected the win after pitching a scoreless 11th inning, walking one and striking out one. Mark Haynes (1-4) took the loss, giving up a run on two hits and two walks in one-third of an inning.

Ford led the Flock with three hits and two runs scored. Dan Lyons added two hits, while Krauss drove in two runs.

HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

RHP Jake Dunning takes the mound for the Ducks looking to keep the club’s three-game winning streak going. In nine games (two starts) Dunning is 2-0 with a 0.87 ERA, striking out 14 and walking seven while yielding 17 hits in 20.2 innings. As a starting pticher, Dunning is responsible for 10 shutout innings, allowing nine hits and a 6:2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The former big leaguer has made one relief appearance against the Skeeters this season, coming on July 26, when he allowed a run on two hits in one inning of work.

Sugar Land counters with RHP Sean Gleason in Wednesday’s contest. In 26 games (eight starts) this season Gleason is 3-7 with a 5.15 ERA. Last time out, the third-year Atlantic Leaguer allowed three runs (one earned) on six hits in 6.1 innings in a quality start against the York Revolution, but got no decision in a 6-5 loss on August 18. Against Long Island this season, Gleason is 0-1 with a 3.18 ERA (2 ER/5.2 IP) across three relief appearances, the last of which came on July 27 at Bethpage Ballpark.

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks (25-16; 61-50) continue their homestand tonight by battling the Lancaster Barnstormers (23-18; 61-50) in the middle game of a three-game series. The Ducks have won 14 of their last 15 games and have catapulted themselves into first place in the Liberty Division Second Half Standings, enjoying a 4.5 game lead over the Bridgeport Bluefish. Lancaster has dropped 10 of their last 13 games, and find themselves tied with the York Revolution for first place in the Freedom Division.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: 

The Long Island Ducks defeated the Lancaster Barnstormers 10-1 on Friday night in the opener of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

Long Island opened the scoring in the second on an RBI single to right field by Ruben Gotay. A five-spot in the fifth inning against Lancaster starter Joe Gardner extended the advantage to 6-0. A two-run home run to left-center by Anthony Vega, an RBI single by Marc Krauss and a two-run single by Elmer Reyes highlighted the inning.

The Ducks continued to pound away with a four-run seventh against reliever R.J. Hively. Gotay’s solo homer, and RBI single by Dan Lyons and RBI doubles from Vega and Delta Cleary Jr. did the damage.

Ducks starter Jake Dunning (2-0) earned the win, tossing five scoreless innings, allowing six hits and a walk while striking out six. Gardner (0-3) took the loss, giving up six runs on nine hits and three walks in four and one-third innings with four strikeouts.

Cleary Jr. added three hits, an RBI and a run, while Gotay and Reyes each had two hits and two RBI.

HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

In 10 appearances (seven starts) Simon is 2-3 with a 4.67 ERA, and ha struck out 39 and walked only 12 in 42.1 innings pitched. The former big leaguer nearly threw a no-hitter in his last start on August 8 in game one of a doubleheader against Southern Maryland. In a seven-inning complete game, Simon allowed only three hits and struck out seven after not allowing a hit through 6.1 innings. In two starts against Lancaster this year, the righty is 0-1 with a 7.27 ERA (7 ER/8.2 IP), but last faced the club on July 6, getting no decision.

Luis Gonzalez toes the rubber tonight for the Lancaster Barnstormers, marking his third appearance with the club and first start. In two previous relief outings, the left-hander has no record and a 1.80 ERA, striking out two and walking three in five innings of work. The 34-year-old is in his 16th professional season, and his fourth in the Atlantic League. Gonzalez pitched for the Bridgeport Bluefish in 2010 and 2011, and spent time with Lancaster in the 2016 season.

Game 111: Ducks vs. Barnstormers

Songco-Hits-Homer-4-29-17

Angelo Songco and the Ducks look to stay in the swing of things as they return home Friday night.

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

Winners of 13 of their last 14, the Long Island Ducks (24-16; 60-50) return home to begin a seven game homestand by welcoming the Lancaster Barnstormers (23-17; 61-49) to the Duck Pond. The Ducks are coming off of a 7-1 road trip, sweeping the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs and taking three of four from the Somerset Patriots to establish a four-game lead in the Liberty Division Second Half Standings. The Barnstormers are currently in first place in the Freedom Division, sporting a one-game lead over the York Revolution.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: 

The Long Island Ducks defeated the Somerset Patriots 5-4 on Thursday night in the finale of a four-game series at TD Bank Ballpark.

The Patriots struck first in the third inning on RBI doubles from Justin Trapp and Kyle Roller off Ducks reliever Wanel Mesa. Another balk by Mesa in the fourth scored Olmo Rosario from third to extend Somerset’s lead to 3-0.

Long Island responded with a five-run fifth inning to swipe the lead from Somerset. Alex Burg was hit by a pitch, Giovanny Alfonzo walked and Anthony Vega singled to load the bases with one out. Delta Cleary Jr. delivered an RBI single to close the gap to 3-1, and Marc Krauss followed with a two-out grand slam to right field off Patriots starter Will Oliver.

Somerset trimmed the Ducks’ lead to one in the sixth when Kyle Roller scored on a passed ball. They then put the tying run on second in both the seventh and ninth innings but could not pull even.

Ducks starter Rafael Perez did not factor into the decision, giving up a hit and a walk in two innings with one strikeout. Mesa (1-0) collected the win despite giving up three runs on three hits and two walks in two innings of work. Oliver (5-4) suffered the loss, surrendering five runs on five hits and two walks in four and two-thirds innings with eight strikeouts. Amalio Diaz earned his 11th save with a scoreless ninth inning.

Krauss led Long Island with two hits and four RBI, while Vega added two hits as well.

HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

The Ducks hand the ball to righty Jake Dunning in the opener with the Barnstormers. In eight appearances (one start) with the Ducks this season, the former big leaguer is 1-0 with a 1.14 ERA. He has struck out eight and walked six in 15.2 innings pitched. In his last outing on August 12 at Southern Maryland, Dunning tossed five shutout innings, allowing three hits and walking one, getting the win in a rain-shortened 9-5  Ducks win. Dunning began the season in the Chicago White Sox organization, splitting time with Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte.

Right-hander Joe Gardner heads to the mound for Lancaster in the opener, making his fifth appearance and fourth overall start. So far, Gardner is 0-2 with an ugly 9.20 ERA, and has allowed an unbelievable 30 hits and 13 walks against nine strikeouts in just 14.2 innings, good for a WHIP of 2.93. In his last start on August 13 against Somerset, Gardner was true to form, allowing five runs (four earned) on 10 hits in 4.2 innings, walking four, striking out one, and getting the loss in a 6-1 Patriots winner. Gardner appeared in six games down the stretch with the Barnstormers last year, posting a 3-1 record with a significantly better 4.21 ERA.

Game 106: Ducks at Blue Crabs

DE6I8033

Alfredo Simon gets the ball again coming off his best start of the season as the Ducks look for their 10th win in a row.

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

2:05 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium (Waldorf, Maryland)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks (20-15; 56-49) complete their week-long matchup with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (13-22; 51-53) tonight in the final game of a four-game series. Long Island has won the first six games of the seven-game home-and-home mega-series. The Ducks have an 12-7 edge in the season series thus far, and have a 6-4 advantage in Waldorf. This series will wrap up the season series between the two teams, and the Blue Crabs are the first team that the Ducks will finish their slate of games with in the 2017 season.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: 

The Long Island Ducks defeated the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 9-5 on Saturday night in a rain-shortened eight-inning contest at Regency Furniture Stadium. The win was extended the Ducks’ season-long winning streak to nine games.

The Ducks loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the third against Blue Crabs starter David Russo, and Ruben Gotay delivered a two-run single to open the scoring. Elmer Reyes added an RBI double in the frame to push the Ducks lead to 3-0.

In the top of the sixth, Long Island broke the game open with a six run outburst against three Southern Maryland pitchers. Quintin Berry highlighted the frame with a two-run single, while Giovanny Alfonzo, Delta Cleary Jr. and Derrick Pyles all had run-scoring hits to give the Ducks a 9-0 lead.

The Blue Crabs fought back in the bottom of the seventh, scoring five runs against John Lannan to narrow the gap to 9-5. In the bottom of the eighth, the Blue Crabs threatened against Patrick Crider, but he was able to escape the two-on, two-out jam.

Right as the top of the ninth was about to get underway, heavy rains began and the tarp was brought on to the field. After a 30-minute delay, the game was called due to inclement weather.

Jake Dunning got the win for Long Island after throwing five shutout innings to improve to 1-0 on the season. David Russo got tagged with the loss to fall to 0-2 after yielding six runs in 5.1 innings.

Gotay led the offense by going 2-for-3 with three RBIs, while Berry went 1-for-3 with two RBIs, two walks and two runs scored.

HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

Alfredo Simon takes the mound for the Ducks this afternoon, looking to build on the momentum of his last start against the Blue Crabs. In game one of a doubleheader Tuesday night at Bethpage Ballpark, Simon took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, eventually finishing off a three-hit shutout. Overall, Simon is 2-3 with a 4.68 ERA on the season in 10 appearances (seven starts). In his last four appearances (two starts) the righty sports a stellar 1.96 ERA (4 ER/18.1 IP).

The Blue Crabs send right-hander Eric Fornataro to the bump, a familiar face for the Ducks who faced him in game one of Tuesday’s doubleheader. Long Island scored six runs on nine hits against him in a 10-0 victory. Fornataro began the year with the New Britain Bees before being traded to Southern Maryland on July 24 as the player to be named later to complete an earlier trade. Overall in 18 games (12 starts) the former big leaguer is 0-4 with a 6.28 ERA.

Anthony Vega and the Ducks are hoping to run their winning streak to nine games tonight.

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

6:35 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium (Waldorf, Maryland)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks (19-15; 55-49) continue their week-long matchup with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (13-21; 51-52) tonight in the third game of a four-game series. Long Island has won the first five games of the seven-game home-and-home mega-series. The Ducks have an 11-7 edge in the season series thus far, and have a 5-4 advantage in Waldorf. This series will wrap up the season series between the two teams, and the Blue Crabs are the first team that the Ducks will finish their slate of games with in the 2017 season.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: 

The Long Island Ducks won their eighth straight game on Friday night at Regency Furniture Stadium, defeating the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 8-4 in a rain-shortened eight-inning affair.

The Ducks took an early lead, scoring twice in the top of the first inning against Blue Crabs starter Drew Hayes. Marc Krauss grounded into a fielder’s choice to score Quintin Berry with the first run of the game, and scored on an Angelo Songco double to give Long Island a 2-0 lead.

In the top of the second, the Ducks rallied for four runs on five hits against Hayes (6-6), including a two-run double from Krauss and another RBI double off the bat of Songco to extend a 6-0 advantage. Krauss finished the game 2-for-4 with a double and four RBIs.

Southern Maryland got on the board in the bottom of the second against Rafael Perez with a Tucker Nathans sacrifice fly making it 6-1 Ducks. Long Island tacked on runs in the fourth and sixth innings, while the Blue Crabs added runs in the fourth, sixth and seventh.

In the top of the ninth, Cody Hebner walked pinch hitter Derrick Pyles leading off. Heavy rains then began and the tarp was called for and the game was called after a 32-minute delay.

Perez (8-7) got the win, allowing four runs on nine hits in seven innings, walking one and striking out two. Rob Rogers added a scoreless inning of relief.

The Ducks set a new franchise record by pounding out nine doubles, surpassing the previous mark of eight set on May 31, 2013 at York. Songco and Audie Afenir had two two-baggers each, while five other Ducks had one. Eight out of the nine Long Island batters in the starting lineup had at least one hit.

HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

Jake Dunning takes the mound for the Ducks in Saturday’s matchup, making his first start of the season. In seven appearances as a reliever, the right-hander has no record and a 1.69 ERA, with eight strikeouts and five walks allowed in 10.2 innings pitched. Dunning spent time in the 2013 and 2014 seasons with the San Francisco Giants, and is a former 33rd round pick out of Indiana University. Dunning celebrates his 29th birthday today, and will be facing the Blue Crabs for the first time this season.

Southern Maryland sends David Russo to the mound to try to put an end to the Ducks’ eight-game winning streak. In 22 appearances (three starts) this season, Russo is 0-1 with a 4.83 ERA. He has struck out 26 and walked an incredible 18 in 31.2 innings pitched this year. The lefty last pitched on August 8 at Bethpage Ballpark against the Ducks, allowing a run on one hit in two innings of relief. Russo faced the Ducks just one other time this year – in a 1.2 inning scoreless relief appearance on Opening Day.
