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 49: Ducks vs. Bluefish

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (24-24) continue a three-game home series with the Bridgeport Bluefish (28-21) tonight at Bethpage Ballpark. The 2017 Ferry Cup has seen no shortage of excitement, including a one-run victory for the Bluefish last night. Following tonight’s game, fans in attendance will be treated to a fireworks spectacular.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks trailed the Bridgeport Bluefish by four runs twice on Friday night at Bethpage Ballpark, but were able to push the tying run into scoring position in the ninth before falling, 5-4.

The Bluefish took the lead in the top of the second, plating a pair of runs against Ducks starter John Brownell. The righty yielded another pair of runs in the top of the third as Bridgeport jumped out to a 4-0 lead.

Long Island answered with a run in the bottom of the third against Bridgeport starter Cory Riordan. Fehlandt Lentini doubled down the right field line with two outs, and Anthony Vega followed with a broken bat single on the next pitch to score Lentini.

Brownell (4-1) allowed just one more run in his seven innings of work, striking out three and not issuing a walk while allowing a season-high 11 hits. The all-time franchise leader in wins completed seven innings for the fourth consecutive start.

Trailing 5-1, the Ducks mounted a rally against Riordan (4-2) in the bottom of the seventh to pull within a pair of runs. Vega laced a one-out double down the right field to score Lentini from first base and advanced to third on the throw home. Elmer Reyes followed with a sacrifice fly to push Long Island within 5-3.

Jim Fuller and Rob Rogers each contributed scoreless innings of relief work in the eighth and ninth, respectively, while Drake Britton threw a 1-2-3 eighth for Bridgeport.

In the ninth, David Carpenter allowed a one-out double to Dan Lyons, who scored two batters later on a base-hit from Vega to cut the deficit to 5-4. Vega stole second to get into scoring position with two outs, but Reyes grounded out to shortstop to end the game.

Vega starred offensively for the Ducks, finishing 3-for-4 with three RBIs, a double, a walk, a run scored and a stolen base. In the game, the Patchogue native doubled his season RBI output from three to six. Lyons also tallied hits in his last three at-bats, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks hand the ball to Matt Larkins in the middle game of the series with Bridgeport, making his ninth start of the season. After a rough stretch, the righty has put together a stretch of two straight quality starts (12.0 IP, 10 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 13 K). Despite this, Larkins is still 0-5 on the season with a 5.92 ERA. Tonight marks the Idaho resident’s third start of the season against Bridgeport, and he is 0-2 in his previous two outings with a 4.09 ERA. Last time out on June 4, Larkins allowed three runs on six hits in six innings at the Bluefish, striking out a season-high seven and not issuing a walk.

Bridgeport will call on former major leaguer Jonathan Albaladejo to climb the hill against the Ducks. Albaladejo is in his second season with the Bluefish, and was an All-Star in 2016. This year, the righty is 3-4 with a 5.66 ERA in eight starts. This will be Albaladejo’s second start against the Ducks, and hie is 0-2 with an ugly 7.71 ERA. Last time out, the Tampa, Florida resident allowed eight runs on 10 hits in 4.2 innings against Long Island on June 3, in a 10-1 Ducks triumph.

Game 40: Ducks vs. Skeeters

Vega-Running-5-17-17GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (19-20) complete their three-game series with the rubber game against the Sugar Land Skeeters (20-20) tonight at Bethpage Ballpark. Tonight’s skirmish will be the third time out of 20 scheduled contests that these clubs have faced each other during the 2017 season.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks fell 13-1 in the middle game of a three-game series to the Sugar Land Skeeters Wednesday night at Bethpage Ballpark.

Ducks starter Eury De La Rosa  struggled in his first start of the season, allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits in two innings of work. Tyler Levine relieved him and yielded five runs (three earned) in 2.1 frames. Rob Rogers allowed two runs in three innings, while Patrick Crider and Jim Fuller closed out the final 1.2 innings with scoreless work.

Long Island plated its lone run in the bottom of the seventh when Fehlandt Lentini drove a triple to left center and scored on a broken bat single from Angelo Songco. It was Lentini’s first triple of the season and the 73rd of his 14-year independent baseball career, an all-time record.

The Ducks recorded just one other hit in the game, an infield single from Lew Ford in the bottom of the ninth as they fell to the Skeeters by a lopsided margin.

ON THE MOUND: The rubber game features Henry Hirsch making his Long Island Ducks debut after being signed earlier in the day. The righty spent the last the past four seasons in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, reaching as high as the Double-A Altoona Curve of the Eastern League. Hirsch spent a majority of the 2016 season with the High-A Bradenton Marauders of the Florida State League, going 6-3 in 38 appearances (13 starts) with a 3.75 ERA.

The Skeeters roll with former Duck Bobby Blevins, making his return to Bethpage Ballpark after spending parts of five seasons on Long Island. Last year Blevins pitched to a 2-12 record with a 5.51 ERA. This year, Blevins is 3-1 with an ERA of 5.12 in eight appearances (four starts). The righty went 16-22 as a member of the Ducks, and was part of the back-to-back Atlantic League Championship teams in 2012 and 2013.

Game 39: Ducks vs. Skeeters

DE6I0831.JPG

With the veteran presence of Lew Ford, the Ducks look to make it three wins in a row tonight.

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (19-19) resume their three-game series with the Sugar Land Skeeters (19-20) after a thrilling waddle-off win Tuesday night. Tonight’s skirmish will be the second time out of 20 scheduled contests that these clubs have faced each other during the 2017 season.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks scored their second consecutive waddle-off win 3-2 over the Sugar Land Skeeters in 11 innings Tuesday night at Bethpage Ballpark.

With Marc Krauss at third after a two-base throwing error from Skeeters catcher Albert Cordero, Giovanny Alfonzo hit a dribbler up the third base line that went for a game-winning infield single.

The Skeeters kicked off the scoring in the top of the first against Ducks starting pitcher Matt Larkins, taking an early 1-0 lead on an RBI single from Hector Olivera.

After the rocky start to the game, the righty settled in and turned in a quality start. Larkins tossed six innings allowing just the one run on four hits, walking four but striking out six. He got no decision.

Sugar Land extended their lead to 2-0 in the top of the seventh against Zac Treece and Jim Fuller when Andy Wilkins doubled to centerfield on a ball that Delta Cleary Jr. lost above the lights.

In the bottom of the eighth, the Ducks finally got on the board after threatening several times throughout the game. Jordan Pacheco walked, stole second base and scored on an Alfonzo single to cut the Skeeters lead to 2-1.

After Rob Rogers held the score at 2-1 with a scoreless inning of relief in the top of the ninth, Krauss blasted a solo home run to centerfield in the bottom of the frame to tie the game at two.

Krauss led off the bottom of the 11th by drawing a walk from Sean Gleason. With two outs, Cordero attempted to back pick on Krauss at first and the throw went wild up the right field line and the runner advanced to third.

On the next pitch Alfonzo tapped a 2-2 offering up the third base line that Bryan Pounds couldn’t field cleanly and Krauss scored the winning tally.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks call on southpaw Eury De La Rosa to make his first start of the season tonight. In six relief appearances this year, De La Rosa owns a 1-0 record with a 2.16 ERA. The diminutive port paw’s last outing came on May 27, where he threw three scoreless innings from the bullpen against the Lancaster Barnstormers. This marks the first time this season that De La Rosa will face the Skeeters. He threw five scoreless innings across three appearances against Sugar Land in 2016.

Sugar Land sends righty Michael Nix to the bump, making his 10th appearance of the year and eighth overall start. Nix, a Skeeter since 2012, has a 2-5 record with a 4.29 ERA this season, and has allowed 34 hits in 35.2 innings pitched. The former Auburn Tiger last appeared on May 27 at York, allowing two runs on three hits in an inning of work. Tonight will be the first time that Nix faces the Ducks since September 28, when the righty threw six shutout innings and got the win in Game Two of the 2016 Atlantic League Championship Series.

Game 38: Ducks vs. Skeeters

DE6I0525.JPG

Dan Lyons and the Ducks look to exact revenge on the Sugar Land Skeeters tonight at Bethpage Ballpark

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (18-19) welcome the Sugar Land Skeeters (19-19) to Bethpage Ballpark for the first time this season. The last time these two clubs squared off was in the 2016 Atlantic League Championship Series, won by the Skeeters. With the first matchup of the year against the Skeeters, the Ducks will have played each Atlantic League foe at least one time in 2017.

SUNDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks scored their third waddle-off win of the season Sunday afternoon, defeating the Lancaster Barnstormers 5-4 in 10 innings at Bethpage Ballpark.

With two outs in the bottom of the 10th, Dan Lyons ripped a double to left-center off Barnstormers reliever Cody Hall to plate Jordan Pacheco with the game-winning run.

The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the fifth, when Elmer Reyes stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and delivered a two-run single off Nate Reed to hand Long Island a 2-0 lead.

Lancaster answered back int he top of the sixth against John Brownell, cutting the deficit to 2-1 courtesy of a Sean Halton sacrifice fly.

Ducks catcher Alex Burg led off the bottom of the sixth with his first triple of the season, and scored two batters later on an RBI single from Cody Puckett, extending the lead to 3-1.

However, in the top of the seventh, Brownell allowed a two-run home run to Anderson De La Rosa to tie the game at three.

The Ducks starter got no decision while completing seven innings, allowing three runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out three. Brownell registered his fifth quality start in seven outings to begin the year.

Long Island regained the lead with small ball tactics in the bottom of the eighth, when Lyons connected for a sacrifice fly to score Marc Krauss, who had walked and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Puckett. Puckett hurt his knee on the play and had to be removed from the game in favor of Pacheco.

The Barnstormers tied the game in the top of the ninth, when David Aardsma allowed a single to Trayvon Robinson, scoring Rico Noel to tie the game at four. Jim Fuller worked around an error by Pacheco in the top of the 10th, setting the stage for Lyons’ heroics.

After Pacheco singled with one out, Giovanny Alfonzo struck out for the second out in the frame. Lyons battled Hall and worked a 3-2 count before delivering the waddle-off hit. The hit capped one of the finest offensive games of the season for the Ducks shortstop, who went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBIs and a run scored.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks hand the ball to Matt Larkins in the opener of the series with Sugar Land. Larkins is looking for a reversal of fortunes, and has pitched far better than his 0-4 record with a 7.26 ERA would indicate. The right-hander has been plagued by poor luck and poor run support this season. In his last start on May 24, Larkins allowed two runs on five hits in five innings at Bridgeport, and was tagged with the loss. Against Sugar Land in the playoffs last year, Larkins allowed a run on two hits in 5.2 innings, and got the loss.

The Skeeters turn to Jake Hale to set the tone for the series. The 6-7 right-hander is 3-1 on the season with a 3.04 ERA and is in his second season with Sugar Land. He anchored the rotation for the club after joining the team midway through the 2016 season and has gotten off to an equally handsome start in 2017. In his last outing on May 21 against the York Revolution, Hale was touched up for five runs on nine hits in 6.1 innings, getting no decision in an eventual 6-5 win for the Skeeters. Hale has recorded five quality starts in his first seven starts of the season.
