Game 24: Ducks vs. Road Warriors

The Ducks look to put an end to their three-game skid tonight against the Road Warriors

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks will look to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Road Warriors in tonight’s series finale. Long Island comes in at 12-11 on the year, four games behind Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division, while the Road Warriors are 6-18, seated at the bottom of the Liberty Division. This will be the sixth of 19 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 113th all-time meeting. The Ducks have dominated the series, winning 94 of 113 games, including a 3-2 record this season, and a 17-1 record against the Road Warriors in their last year of action, 2011.

WEDNESDAY’S RECAP: 

For the first time this season, the Ducks took a loss in a game in which they were winning after seven innings. The Road Warriors rallied for three runs in the ninth inning, then put up three more in extras to win 6-3.

The Ducks got on the board in the third inning after a bases-loaded single by Travis Snider drove a pair of runs in. The lead was extended to three in the fifth inning when Jordany Valdespin scored on a wild pitch.

Ducks starter Bennett Parry cruised through seven scoreless innings, striking out nine batters and allowing only three hits. Francisco Rodriguez came in to close out the game in the ninth inning, but two hits, a walk, and a pair of defensive mishaps led to the Road Warriors tying the game at 3-3.

After two scoreless extra innings, the Road Warriors tacked on three more runs in the 12th off three hits and an error. The Ducks could not rally in the bottom half of the frame, leading to a heartbreaking defeat.

Wander Perez took the loss, allowing two runs on two hits in his inning of work. Andrew Johnston earned the win for the Road Warriors, pitching a scoreless 11th inning. William Gabay got the save, walking one batter and striking out the other three.

WEDNESDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

Jake Fisher will man the rubber for the Ducks tonight, attempting to put an end to the team’s recent struggles. The Oklahoma native has been Long Island’s best arm, owning a 2.42 ERA and going eight scoreless innings in each of his last two starts. The 27-year-old lefty joined the Ducks midway through last season after spending his last four years with the Windy City Thunderbolts of the Frontier League.

Felix Baez will look to complete the sweep for the Road Warriors. The Puerto Rican righty has factored into the decision in each of his first four starts, going 1-3 with a 6.05 ERA over 19.1 innings. Baez took the loss in his last outing, allowing five runs over five and one-third innings to the red-hot Lancaster Barnstormers. The 25-year-old spent his first two professional seasons with the Evansville Otters of the Frontier League before joining the Road Warriors this year.

Game 20: Ducks at Patriots

Ford-Road

Long Island looks to get back in the win column after Friday’s pitcher’s duel

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks and Patriots take the field for the middle game of their three-game series in the Garden State. Somerset now has a 3-1 lead in this year’s season series after claiming Friday’s series opener. Additionally, Long Island now trails the Patriots by two games in the Liberty Division standings as the Ducks get set to play their 20th game of 2018. In what has been an incredibly tight all-time series, Somerset now holds a slim 175-174 all-time lead and a 92-82 advantage at TD Bank Ballpark.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: 

Friday saw another classic pitcher’s duel between the Ducks and Patriots to kick off the series. However, the Ducks were held off the scoreboard for the second time this season, falling to the Patriots, 1-0.

Starter Jake Fisher was superb on the mound once again for the Flock. The southpaw mimicked his previous start from May 12 against Sugar Land, tossing eight scoreless innings for the second outing in a row. He conceded just four singles on the night and struck out four batters without giving up a single walk. The 27-year-old threw 99 pitches over his eight innings, 70 of which were strikes (71%).

Unfortunately for Fisher, the Patriots pitching staff matched him step for step. Kyle Davies started and threw three hitless innings, yielding just one walk and striking out one. Vince Molesky tossed two and one-third scoreless innings thereafter, and Mike Antonini followed with one and two-thirds innings without allowing a run. Logan Kensing pitched a scoreless eighth, and Ryan Kelly did the same in the ninth.

Heading into the bottom of the ninth, the offenses combined to register just seven hits and two walks. However, Ashur Tolliver had trouble finding the strike zone and walked the first two hitters in the frame. Following a sacrifice bunt by Endy Chavez and an intentional walk to Justin Trapp, Aaron Dudley came to the plate. He lifted an 0-1 pitch to left field that Daniel Fields had trouble fielding with a strong breeze blowing in. The fly ball was dropped, allowing pinch-runner Justin Pacchioli to scamper home from third with the winning run.

FRIDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

Game two of the series will feature John Brownell on the mound for Long Island. The right-hander has struggled to begin the year, posting a 1-2 record with a 6.13 ERA through three starts. His most recent outing came last Sunday against the Sugar Land Skeeters in which he suffered the loss, allowing six runs (three earned) over four innings. Three errors made life more challenging for the seventh-year Duck, who had to throw 99 pitches during the outing. Brownell posted a 4.58 ERA over three regular season starts against the Patriots in 2017 and has a 2-2 record with a 4.21 ERA and 78 strikeouts over 17 career regular season starts against Somerset.

On the other side, Cory Riordan will toe the rubber for the Patriots. He enters tonight’s outing a 1-0 record and a 3.56 ERA over three starts to begin the season. The right-hander faced the Ducks back on May 3, allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out three in six innings, taking a no-decision in Somerset’s 6-5, 11-inning win. He earned the victory his last time out, pitching 10 days ago against the Road Warriors. The 32-year-old lasted six innings, allowing six hits, four runs (two earned) and two walks while striking out five. All three of his starts thus far have come at home.

Game 19: Ducks at Patriots

High-Fives-5-17-18

Following a 4-2 homestand, the Ducks hit the road to face the rival Patriots

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks head back on the road following their six-game homestand to face the Somerset Patriots in a three-game weekend series. This is Long Island’s second visit to the Garden State after they dropped two of three to the Patriots May 1-3. Entering the series, the Ducks and Patriots are separated by just one game in the Liberty Division standings, with the Pats at 11-5 overall and the Flock at 11-7. The Ducks and Patriots have played a tightly contested all-time series, with the previous 348 meetings split evenly at 174 apiece. Somerset holds a 91-82 advantage in their home ballpark.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: 

After taking the series opener, 3-2, on Tuesday night and having Wednesday’s game postponed due to inclement weather, the Ducks completed a series sweep of the Road Warriors by taking both games of Thursday’s doubleheader.

Giovanni Soto stifled the Ducks offense over the first five innings of game one. The Road Warriors southpaw did not allow a single base runner in that time and struck out six batters. However, with the Ducks trailing 1-0 in the sixth, Daniel Fields and Ramon Cabrera picked up back-to-back singles to end the bid at history. Dan Lyons followed with his first home run of the season, a three-run blast to left field that put the Ducks ahead 3-1. David Washington followed later with an RBI double off reliever Luis Cruz.

After Matt Larkins pitched six innings of one-run ball and struck out six for Long Island, Francisco Rodriguez took over in the seventh to earn the save. He allowed a one-out double to Alfredo Silverio but struck out Anthony Ray and Osvaldo Martinez to preserve the 4-1 victory.

In game two, Bennett Parry toed the rubber for Long Island and allowed a leadoff solo homer to Martinez that put the Ducks in an initial hole. However, the southpaw settled in after that point and pitched a complete game, allowing just the one run on three hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out a career-high 11 batters.

Meanwhile, the Ducks offense was in high gear during the second game, rudely greeting Road Warriors starter Brandon Bargas in his Atlantic League debut. The Ducks batted around in both the first and fourth innings, striking for four runs in the first and five in the fourth. RBI singles by Travis Snider and Wilkin Castillo, along with a two-run single by Lyons, highlighted the scoring in the first. Robert Garcia’s mammoth solo homer to left field, Washington’s two-run single, Castillo’s RBI base hit and a sac fly from Lyons did the damage in the fourth. Lyons finished with six RBIs between the two games of the twin bill.

GAME ONE HIGHLIGHTS: 

GAME TWO HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

For the series opener at Somerset, the Ducks have elected to skip Jair Jurrjens’ turn in the rotation and start Jake Fisher. The southpaw comes in with a 2-0 record and a 3.50 ERA over three starts this season and was spectacular in his most recent outing. He fired eight scoreless innings last Saturday against the Skeeters at home, yielding just six hits and no walks while striking out 10 batters in his best regular season start with Long Island. This will be the 27-year-old’s second start ever (regular season or playoffs) against the Patriots. His first came in Game Three of the 2017 Liberty Division Championship Series, when he pitched a complete game victory and allowed just one run while striking out nine in front of an Atlantic League playoffs record crowd at TD Bank Ballpark.

On the other side, former Major Leaguer Kyle Davies will make his second start of the year for the Patriots. The right-hander pitched a scoreless first inning against Lancaster last Saturday in New Jersey before a rain delay ended his start prematurely. He brings eight seasons of Major League experience to the Patriots, who he signed with on May 7th. Davies most recently made one appearance with the Yankees in 2015 and also spent time with the Atlanta Braves and Kansas City Royals. He allowed Alex Rodriguez’s 500th career home run as a member of the latter and was 43-65 with a 5.57 ERA over 152 MLB games (144 starts). The 34-year-old did not pitch professionally in 2017.

Game 15: Ducks vs. Skeeters

The Ducks look to settle the score against the Skeeters in the rubber match of their weekend series

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TODAY’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks take on the Sugar Land Skeeters in the rubber match of their weekend series. Long Island comes in at 8-6 on the year, one-and-a-half games behind Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division, while Sugar Land enters at 9-5, a half-game behind Lancaster for first in the Freedom Division. This will be the third of 18 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 122nd all-time meeting. The Skeeters have just a one-game lead on the Ducks in the all-time series, going 61-60 against the Flock. Meanwhile, the Ducks have a 37-24 record defending their home against the Skeeters. Last season’s series between the two teams ended in an even split, 10-10.

LAST GAME RECAP: 

Ducks fans witnessed the team’s finest pitching performance of the season thus far, as Long Island was able to shut out a red-hot Skeeters offense that had scored 34 runs in its last five games.

Jordany Valdespin delivered the first blow in the third inning with a single to drive home the opening run. Another run came across during the next at-bat, as Alec Sole scored on a double play ball. The Ducks then put up a four-spot in the seventh inning after two-run singles by Emilio Bonifacio and Lew Ford to make the score 6-0.

Starter Jake Fisher was the shining star of the team on Saturday, going eight shutout innings and striking out a Ducks season-high 10 batters while allowing only six hits. Matt Marsh struck out the side in the ninth inning to put away the Skeeters. Tyler Badamo took the loss after allowing two earned runs over four and two-thirds innings.

SATURDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

Ducks veteran and now pitching coach John Brownell will start Sunday’s matinee. The right-hander will be facing the Skeeters for the 20th time of his career. He has a 12-3 record all-time against Sugar Land, with his last start against the Skeeters coming in August of last year. Overall, Brownell posted a 10-5 record and a 3.44 ERA in 2017, earning his first Atlantic League All-Star Game selection. His ERA ranked third-best in the Atlantic League, while his 10 victories were good for fifth. The Omaha resident is Long Island’s all-time leader in wins (57), innings pitched (880.2), strikeouts (671) and starts (134).

Ben Griset will start for the Skeeters today, sporting an even record of 1-0 with a 0.93 ERA this season. The Modesto, Calif., native went four and two-thirds innings in his last start on Tuesday against the Lancaster Barnstormers, allowing one run and not factoring into the decision. His first start of the year featured five shutout innings of two-hit ball against the New Britain Bees, striking out seven. Griset spent his last three seasons in the Mets’ organization, pitching out of the bullpen for Double-A Binghamton and earning a 4-1 record with a 2.39 ERA.

Game 14: Ducks vs. Skeeters

The Ducks meet the Skeeters before the season’s second Fireworks Spectacular 

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Ducks take on the Sugar Land Skeeters in the middle game of their weekend series. Long Island comes in at 7-6 on the year, two-and-a-half games behind Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division, while Sugar Land enters at 9-4, a half-game ahead of Lancaster for first in the Freedom Division. This will be the second of 18 scheduled games between the two teams this season and their 121st all-time meeting. The Skeeters have a two-game lead on the Ducks in the all-time series, going 61-59 against the Flock. Meanwhile, the Ducks have a 36-24 record defending their home against the Skeeters. Last season’s series between the two teams ended in an even split, 10-10

LAST GAME RECAP: 

The Ducks did not go out quietly last night despite finding themselves in a 5-0 hole early on, pulling within two runs late in the game.

Jair Jurrjens did not have his best stuff in his third start with the Ducks, allowing two runs in the second inning after loading the bases without recording an out. Three more runs came across in the fourth following two consecutive hits with two men already on base, scoring the third run on a Colin Walsh sacrifice fly. All five runs occurred before the Ducks had reached base for the first time in the fifth inning with a lead-off double from Lew Ford.

Jordany Valdespin continued his run as the Ducks’ best hitter in the young season by driving in Long Island’s first run of the ballgame with a broken-bat single to right field in the sixth inning. Valdespin brought home another run in the eighth inning after hitting a three-bagger to right field. He was then sent home by an Emilio Bonifacio sacrifice fly to make the score 5-3.

Unfortunately, that was as close as the Ducks would get, with the score remaining the same after the ninth inning. Jurrjens took the loss, allowing five runs on 10 hits over six innings. Brett Marshall pitched a gem and earned the win for the Skeeters, allowing one run on four hits, striking out four over seven innings. Ducks relievers Daniel Schlereth and Carlos Pimentel continued the bullpen’s streak of 10 consecutive scoreless innings.

FRIDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

Jake Fisher will man the rubber for the Ducks tonight, looking to slow down a hot Sugar Land offense. The Oklahoma native will attempt to bounce back from a tough start a week ago against Southern Maryland in which he was tagged for five runs on eleven hits over five innings. His first start was more successful, pitching five innings of two-run ball en route to a 12-2 victory. The 27-year-old lefty joined the Ducks midway through last season after spending his last four years with the Windy City Thunderbolts of the Frontier League. His first year in professional baseball was in the Dodgers organization after being drafted in the 22nd round of the 2013 draft.

Tyler Badamo will start for the Skeeters tonight, sporting an even record of 1-1 with a 4.82 ERA this season. The Mount Sinai, N.Y., native pitched five shutout innings in his first start against New Britain before allowing six runs (five earned) last Sunday against the Patriots, taking the loss. Badamo spent last season with the now-defunct Bridgeport Bluefish, going 4-3 with a strong 2.62 ERA before having his contract purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks and reaching Triple-A Reno. The 25-year-old spent his first three professional seasons in the Mets organization, reaching Single-A Columbia, before entering the Atlantic League last year.
