The Ducks look to continue their roll against the Lancaster Barnstormers

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks and Lancaster Barnstormers open up a four-game series on Tuesday. This will be the 14th of 17 scheduled meetings between the Ducks and Barnstormers this season and the 268th all-time meeting between the two teams. Lancaster leads the all-time series by just one game, 134-133, with the Barnstormers up 7-6 in the 2018 series. The Ducks bring a 29-15 second half record into the series opener leading the first half standings by four and a half games. The Barnstormers are six and a half games back of the Sugar Land Skeeters in the second half standings with a 22-19 record, but they hold the first wild card spot with a 60-44 overall record, two and a half games ahead of the Long Island Ducks.

LAST GAME RECAP:

The Ducks completed their second sweep in a row by walking-off the Road Warriors in extra innings.

Neither side dented home plate until the bottom of the sixth inning. Lew Ford opened the inning with a double and came around to score on a sacrifice fly to right field by Ramon Cabrera. The Road Warriors tied the ballgame at one in the eighth inning when Ermindo Escobar singled, moved to second on a balk and scored on a two-out RBI double by Anthony Ray.

It remained 1-1 until the bottom of the 10th inning. David Washington drew a one-out walk then came around to score the winning run on a first-pitch walk-off double to left-center field from Cabrera.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Dennis O’Grady tossed three perfect innings for Long Island, striking out two. Felix Baez-Pool lasted six innings, giving up one run on four hits and three walks while striking out six. Logan Ondrusek collected the win after striking out the side in a scoreless 10th inning. Julio DePaula took the loss, giving up the winning run on one hit and one walk in the 10th.

SUNDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS:

ON THE MOUND:

John Brownell will take the mound for the Ducks tonight for the series opener. The team’s pitching coach will look to follow up his win over Southern Maryland last Wednesday. Brownell threw six innings and gave up four runs on eight hits and two walk, striking out three in a 7-4 victory. Overall, the franchise leader in wins, strikeouts, innings pitched and starts is 9-10 with a 4.56 ERA in 21 games (20 starts) this season. The righty is 7-8 with a 4.27 ERA in 22 games (21 starts) against the Barnstormers in his career.

Brooks Hall will be on the mound for the Barnstormers. The righty owns a 5.06 ERA with a 9-3 record coming into tonight’s game. Hall is coming off a tough start against the Revolution in which he allowed six runs in just two and one-third innings of work. However, the Barnstormers were still able to win 8-7. The South Carolina native spent his first eight seasons in the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks organizations, reaching Triple-A in 2016 and 2017, and earning all-star honors at the Advanced-A and Double-A levels.

Game 102: Ducks at Blue Crabs

The Ducks look to get back on track against the Blue Crabs

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

7:15 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium (Waldorf, Md.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks open a three-game series with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs on Wednesday night. The Blue Crabs won the previous series between the two teams, scoring nine runs in each of the final two games. Long Island now leads the season series 9-6 and are 4-2 against Southern Maryland on the road. The Ducks are one and a half games ahead of Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division standings and four in front of New Britain.

LAST GAME RECAP: 

The Bees offense exploded after being shutout on Saturday, defeating the Ducks 10-2 in the series finale.

The Bees struck first in the very first inning with a two-out two-run homer off the bat of Matt Tuiasosopo. An RBI single by James Skelton in the third inning, and a two-run homer from Joe Poletsky in the fourth put the Ducks in a 5-0 hole.

The Ducks cut into the lead in the top of the fifth, when David Washington sent a lead-off home run over the right-field wall. Jovan Rosa of the Bees matched Washington with a solo shot in the sixth to push the score to 6-1.

An RBI double by Taylor Ard in the eighth inning made the score 6-2, but that was as close as the Ducks would get. New Britain scored four runs in the bottom half of the inning. Jamar Walton’s two-run triple, and RBI singles by Jonathan Galvez and Vicente Conde did the damage.

Matt Larkins suffered the loss, allowing six runs on nine hits over six innings, striking out five. Mark Hamburger earned the win, pitching six innings of one-run ball, allowing four hits and a walk, adding three punchouts. Jose Cuas struck out the side in order in an inning of relief.

SUNDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

John Brownell will take the mound for the Ducks tonight for the series opener. The team’s pitching coach will look to bounce back after a loss to Southern Maryland last week. Brownell threw five and two-thirds innings and gave up five runs on 11 hits and one walk. Overall, the franchise leader in wins, strikeouts, innings pitched and starts is 8-10 with a 4.48 ERA in 20 games (19 starts) this season. The righty is 10-7 with a 3.52 ERA in 19 starts against the Blue Crabs in his career.

Casey Delgado takes on the Ducks tonight. The righty threw six shutout innings against the Road Warriors in his last start, allowing six hits and a walk while striking out three on August 16. The victory improved his record to 5-8 this season with a 4.50 ERA. Delgado started his professional career in the Frontier League, spending two-and-a-half seasons there before joining the Mets organization. The Florida native was with Double-A Binghamton for the majority of the last two years.

Game 98: Ducks vs. Blue Crabs

Fields-Lyons-High-Five

The Ducks and Blue Crabs battle for the series victory in the homestand finale

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks play the rubber game of their three-game series with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs on Wednesday night. The Ducks took the series opener 5-4 on Monday, while the Blue Crabs answered back with a 9-7 win on Tuesday. Long Island now leads the season series 9-5 and are 5-3 against Southern Maryland at home. Due to losses by the Patriots and Bees, the Ducks did not lose any ground to either on Tuesday night. They remain two and a half games ahead of Somerset for first place in the Liberty Division standings and six in front of New Britain.

LAST GAME RECAP: 

A slugfest between the Ducks and Blue Crabs on Tuesday saw the teams combine for 16 runs and 28 hits, including five home runs. However, it was Southern Maryland who claimed the game 9-7 to even the series.

Jordany Valdespin gave the Ducks their only lead of the night with a first-inning leadoff homer to right field. However, two hits and a walk in the top of the second, including an RBI single by Craig Maddox tied the game at one. The Blue Crabs then jumped ahead for good with four runs in the third inning, as Ducks starter John Brownell was tagged for five hits, highlighted by a two-run homer to right from Devon Rodriguez.

Long Island closed to within 5-3 in the bottom of the frame against Blue Crabs starter Daryl Thompson, as Daniel Fields launched a two-run homer to right field. Both sides settled in over the next three innings, but the Blue Crabs offense would extend their lead in the seventh against Ashur Tolliver. Four hits in the inning, including a bases-clearing three-run double by former-Duck Angelo Songco, made it an 8-3 ballgame.

The never-say-die Ducks would rally once again, as they got to reliever Ryan Chaffee in the bottom of the eighth. Nine men came to the plate, as Valdespin clubbed a second homer on the night and both Taylor Ard and Ramon Cabrera collected RBI singles. Long Island closed to within one at 8-7, but a foul pop by pinch-hitter Miles Williams stranded the tying run on second and the go-ahead run on first. Frank Martinez ended the scoring for the night with a leadoff solo homer in the ninth.

TUESDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: 

ON THE MOUND:

The series finale features a matchup of southpaws on the mound. Left-hander Jake Fisher will get the start, coming in with a 6-5 record and a 3.93 ERA over 17 starts this season. He most recently pitched on Friday night against the York Revolution, taking a no-decision in Long Island’s 7-5 defeat. In six innings, Fisher allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out four batters and throwing 110 pitches. The second-year Duck has made three starts against Southern Maryland in 2018, yielding 11 runs on 28 hits in 16 and one-third innings, though he has walked just one while striking out 11.

Southern Maryland will counter with lefty David Wayne Russo, who makes his 29th appearance of the season and fifth start. Thus far, he is 1-4 with a 5.25 ERA, yielding 52 hits and 30 walks over 48 innings while striking out 36. He lasted just two and two-thirds innings in his most recent start, conceding six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two in the Blue Crabs 12-4 loss to the Sugar Land Skeeters. Russo has taken the loss in three of his four starts and has a 9.00 ERA as a starter this year. The California native has made four relief appearances this season against Long Island, giving up three runs on five hits and six walks over four and two-thirds innings while taking a loss.

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

The Long Island Ducks and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs continue their three-game series tonight. This will be the 14th of 18 scheduled meetings between the Ducks and Blue Crabs this season and the 211th all-time meeting between the two teams. Long Island holds a 111-99 advantage all-time, with the Ducks leading 63-48 at home. The Ducks are in first place by two and a half games heading into Tuesday, with a record of 22-11 in the second half. Southern Maryland is 10-20 in the second half, sitting in last place in the Freedom Division.

LAST GAME RECAP: 

The Ducks won their third game in a row, taking a back and forth game against the Blue Crabs by a score of 5-4.

The Blue Crabs opened the scoring in the first inning on an RBI fielder’s choice off the bat of Teodoro Martinez. David Washington tied the game for the Ducks in the second with a solo home run to straightaway center field off Blue Crabs starter Brett Marshall.

Southern Maryland went back ahead 2-1 in the third on Edwin Garcia’s RBI single to right. However, a two-run single up the middle by Daniel Fields in the bottom of the frame put Long Island on top 3-2. The Blue Crabs took the lead back though with two runs of their own in the fifth off Ducks starter Matt Larkins. A run-scoring fielder’s choice from Angelys Nina and an RBI ground-rule double by Angelo Songco did the damage.

Long Island would respond right away once again, as Travis Snider’s RBI single to right in the bottom of the fifth scored Jordany Valdespin to tie the game at four. One inning later, a two-out RBI single to right by Valdespin plated Ramon Cabrera with the eventual winning run.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Larkins pitched five innings, allowing four runs on 10 hits and four walks while striking out five. Marshall lasted four innings, yielding four runs on six hits and five walks with three strikeouts and three wild pitches.

John Brownell will take the mound for the Ducks tonight in a matchup of Atlantic League veterans. The team’s pitching coach will look to bounce back after a loss in which he went eight innings.

Overall, the seventh-year Atlantic League veteran is 3-3 with a great 1.96 ERA over nine starts this season. Thompson has made four MLB appearances in his career with the Cincinnati Reds, and has had his contract purchased three times during his time with the Blue Crabs.

Game 92: Ducks vs. Revolution

The Ducks look to extend their season-long win streak tonight

GAME TIME/LOCATION:

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP:

A four-game series between the Long Island Ducks and York Revolution kicks off tonight. The Ducks enter the game at playing their best baseball of the season, winning six straight and taking a one-game lead in the Liberty Division at 19-9 in the second half. The Revolution are 13-15 in the second half, sitting in third place in the Freedom division. Long Island is now victorious in six of their 11 meetings with York this year and are split 2-2 at Bethpage Ballpark.

LAST GAME RECAP:

The Ducks completed another sweep of the Somerset Patriots in an extra-inning thriller, winning 4-3 in 11 innings.

Lew Ford opened the scoring for the Ducks in the first inning with a sacrifice fly to right field that scored Jordany Valdespin. Somerset tied the game in the fourth on an RBI single up the middle by Jayce Boyd off Ducks starter Matt Larkins.

Long Island took the lead back in the fifth, as another sac fly by Ford and an RBI single by Taylor Ard off Patriots starter Stephen Perakslis put the Ducks ahead 3-1. Somerset closed to within a run in the sixth when Matt Oberste’s two-out RBI single to center scored Ramon Flores.

It stayed that way until the bottom of the ninth when an error, a walk and a passed ball allowed Scott Kelly to scamper home with the tying run. The Ducks grabbed the lead back once again at 4-3 in the 11th when Anthony Vega launched a two-out solo homer to right field.

Somerset put the tying and winning runs on base with one out in the bottom of the 11th. However, Ashur Tolliver struck out Justin Pacchioli and Flores to secure the save.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Larkins pitched five innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits and two walks with one strikeout. Perakslis lasted six innings, yielding three runs on nine hits and a walk over six innings with five strikeouts. Dennis O’Grady earned the win after pitching a scoreless 10th inning.

The team’s pitching coach will look to continue his three-game win streak after shutting down the Road Warriors in his last start. Brownell went seven shutout innings and allowed just three hits and three walks, striking out four. Overall, the franchise leader in wins, strikeouts, innings pitched and starts is 8-8 with a 4.03 ERA in 17 games (16 starts) this season.

2018 Atlantic League All-Star Game selection Mitch Atkins will take the mound for the Revolution. He brings an 8-4 overall record and a 4.04 ERA over 17 starts into Thursday’s ballgame. Atkins last pitched for the Revs on August 4th when he went six innings and allowed three runs (one earned) in a winning effort against the Blue Crabs. The former big leaguer is 3-0 with a 1.37 ERA in his three starts against the Ducks.
