Game 60: Ducks vs. Patriots

lew-ford-5.jpgGAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (30-29) host the Somerset Patriots (36-23) in the final game of a four-game series. Long Island looks for the series win after taking two of the first three games, and would move to within five games of Somerset for the first-half division crown with just 10 games left with a win.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Somerset Patriots 4-2 on Wednesday night in the third game of a four-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

Both sides were held off the scoreboard over the first five and a half innings. Ducks starter Alfredo Simon pitched well in his Bethpage Ballpark debut, throwing five scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and four walks while striking out four. Patriots starter Jerome Williams pitched 4.1 innings of scoreless baseball before leaving with an injury and gave up four hits and a walk with four strikeouts.

Long Island broke through in the bottom of the sixth inning on a two-run home run to right-center field by Marc Krauss off of Alex Gouin. Somerset pulled even at two in the top of the eighth with an RBI single by Greg Golson and a bases loaded walk to Christian Marrero from Patrick Crider.

The Ducks took the lead back for good in the bottom of the frame. RBI singles by Alex Burg and Giovanny Alfonzo put the Flock back in front 4-2.

Zac Treece (4-1) picked up the win after recording the final out of the eighth inning, leaving the bases loaded. Justin Wright (2-1) took the loss after surrendering two runs on four hits in his one inning of relief. Amalio Diaz earned his second save of the year with a perfect ninth inning.

Krauss, Burg, Alfonzo and Angelo Songco each had two hits to pace the Flock.

ON THE MOUND: Long Island sends right-hander Dennis O’Grady to the mound to make his ninth start of the season and 13th overall appearance. O’Grady is coming off his roughest start of the season on June 17 at Lancaster when he allowed season-team-highs with nine runs and 12 hits in 5.0 innings of work in a 10-0 Barnstormers win. The right-hander is 3-3 with a 4.32 ERA on the season, and has struck out 50 batters but walked 26 in 50.0 IP.

Somerset counters with Dave Kubiak, making his second start of the series, although his first outing on Monday was cancelled out by rain. Kubiak is 2-5 with a 3.58 ERA on the season in 11 appearances (eight starts). The 6-7 righty has struck out 56 and walked only 15 in 52.2 innings, but has suffered from a lack of run and bullpen support. In his last start which counted for his stats, Kubiak threw 6.1 innings against the Ducks on June 14, allowing two runs on four hits, striking out six and walking two while getting no decision in a 7-6 Patriots 10-inning win.

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 54: Ducks at Barnstormers

Vega-Running-5-17-17GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:30 p.m. at Clipper Magazine Stadium (Lancaster, Pa.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (27-26) continue their six-game road trip by beginning a three-game series with the Lancaster Barnstormers (28-25). Tonight’s contest is the first time that the Ducks will play the Barnstormers on the road this season, and is just the fifth matchup between the clubs this year. Lancaster has won three of the first four games, all coming at Bethpage Ballpark in May.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Somerset Patriots 3-1 on a near-historic night at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, N.J. on Thursday.

Ducks starter Matt Larkins (2-5) nearly made history, coming just three outs shy of pitching the second no-hitter in franchise history (Rod Henderson, 5/25/01 vs. Atlantic City). The right-hander retired the first 20 batters he faced before allowing a two-out walk in the seventh inning to Carlos Guzman, ending his bid for a perfect game. He set down the next four hitters in order to bring a no-hitter into the ninth. However, he surrendered a leadoff solo home run to Chris Grayson that ended his chance at history.

“It was a little bit of a let down,” Larkins commented following the game. “You want to get through nine with it. It’s one of those things that doesn’t happen too often. I threw a good changeup down and away, and he kind of just got enough of it to get it out. I have no problem with the pitch; He just did a good job of hitting it.”

Larkins finished his night with eight and one-third innings pitched, yielding just the homer and two walks while striking out seven batters. He threw 99 pitches while earning the victory, 67 of which were strikes.

“I felt good pretty much the whole game,” Larkins commented following the game. “I think I knew pretty much the whole game what was going on. It was just one of those nights where I had a really good sinker going – had a lot of movement on it – and then really good command of the other two pitches.”

The Ducks (27-26) were kept off the scoreboard by Patriots starter Lucas Irvine until the top of the seventh inning, when Long Island broke through against reliever Duane Below. Delta Cleary Jr.’s two-out single and Giovanny Alfonzo’s RBI double put the Flock ahead 1-0. Long Island added single runs in the eighth and ninth to build a 3-0 lead on RBI singles by Angelo Songco and Dan Lyons.

Following Grayson’s homer in the ninth, Somerset (32-21) put the tying runs on base via a one-out walk to Scott Kelly and a two-out walk to Carlos Guzman. However, Chin-Hui Tsao struck out former Duck Mark Minicozzi to end the ballgame.

Irvine took a no-decision for the Patriots, tossing six scoreless innings, allowing three hits and three walks while striking out five. Below (3-1) suffered the loss, surrendering two runs on four hits and a walk in two innings of relief with four strikeouts. Tsao collected his seventh save of the season after recording the final two outs of the game, both on strikeouts.

Marc Krauss led the Flock offensively with two hits in the victory, while Elmer Reyes added a hit and three walks.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks begin the series by sending Alfredo Simon to the mound to make his Long Island debut. The nine-year MLB vet was a National League All-Star in 2014 while pitching with the Cincinnati Reds, going 15-10 with a 3.44 ERA in 196.1 innings. In 2016, Simon appeared in 15 games (11 starts) with Cincinnati, in his second stint with the club, going 2-7 with a 9.36 ERA. “Big Pasta” also pitched for the Baltimore Orioles and Detriot Tigers in his big league career.

Lancaster counters with Atlantic League veteran Bryan Evans, in his third season with the club. Evans is 3-2 with a 4.88 ERA in his first nine starts of the season, which marks his third with the Barnstormers. The 30-year-old has not faced the Ducks yet this season, but in his last start on June 10, he allowed one run on three hits in six innings to get the win over the York Revolution. Evans was an Atlantic League All-Star in 2016, and was the Barnstormers’ Opening Day starter in 2015 and 2016. Last year, he set the franchise record with 130 strikeouts, including a single-game record 13 against the Ducks on August 14.

Game 53: Ducks at Patriots

DE6I0525GAME TIME/LOCATION: 7:05 p.m. at TD Bank Ballpark (Bridgewater, N.J.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (26-26) continue their three-game series with the Liberty Division-leading Somerset Patriots (32-20) tonight. The Ducks and Patriots are separated by six games in the standings and will play each other five times in the final 18 games of the first half.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks fell to the Somerset Patriots 7-6 in a walk off Wednesday night at TD Bank Ballpark in the middle game of a three-game series.

The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the third, when the Patriots sent nine batters to the plate and scored three runs against John Brownell. The big blow in the frame was a two-run home run by Somerset catcher Adam Donachie.

The Ducks would get on the board against Patriots starter Dave Kubiak in the top of the fifth when Marc Krauss launched a solo home run to right field. The blast was Krauss’ fifth of the season and second in his last two games played.

In the bottom of the fifth, Somerset pulled back ahead by three when Greg Golson walked, stole second base, and scored on an Aharon Eggleston double. Brownell was done after the fifth, allowing four runs on seven hits, walking four and striking out three. He did not factor into the decision.

Long Island broke out the bats and took a 5-4 lead in the top of the seventh against four Somerset pitchers, with the highlight coming on an Alex Burg three-run, opposite-field home run. However, the Patriots answered back with two runs off Eury De La Rosa in the bottom of the frame to claim a 6-5 advantage.

Dan Lyons drove a double off the wall to lead off the top of the ninth against Jon Hunton, and he scored two batters later on an Anthony Vega sacrifice fly to tie the game at six.

With two outs in the bottom of the 10th, Carlos Guzman and Alfredo Rodriguez collected back-to-back singles against Patrick Crider, and pinch hitter Yovan Gonzalez won the game with another base hit to left, scoring Guzman.

Crider (0-3) was tagged with the loss for the Ducks, while Will Oliver (2-0) got the win after a scoreless inning of relief for the Patriots.

ON THE MOUND: Long Island looks to salvage the final game of this three-game series with Matt Larkins on the mound. The right-hander sports a deceptive 1-5 record and 5.26 ERA heading into tonight’s outing, as he has thrown three straight quality starts. In those three combined starts, Larkins has a 1-1 record with a 2.41 ERA (5 ER/18.2 IP), and has struck out 16 and walked six. The UC-Riverside product has faced the Somerset Patriots just once this year, allowing one unearned run on three hits in four innings in his first start of the year on April 26.

The Patriots counter with right-hander Lucas Irvine, who enters the matchup with a 3-1 record and a 4.88 ERA. However, that number is skewed by a few bad starts in May, as Irvine is 3-0 with a 2.50 ERA (5 ER/18.0 IP) in his last three outings. Last time out, the Kansas City, Missouri native allowed three runs on six hits in six innings at the New Britain Bees on June 9, getting the win in a 12-7 Somerset triumph. Irvine has not faced the Ducks this season.

Game 51: Ducks at Patriots

Alfonzo Waddle Off (9).JPG

The Ducks scored a pair of waddle-off victories over the Patriots in the last installment of their season series in May at Bethpage Ballpark. Giovanny Alfonzo was responsible for both of the game-winning plays.

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (26-24) hit the road to begin a pivotal three-game series with the Liberty Division-leading Somerset Patriots (30-20) tonight. The Ducks and Patriots are separated by four games in the standings and will play each other seven more times before the end of the first half. The Ducks recently swept a three-game set with the Patriots at Bethpage Ballpark in May.

SUNDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks used a five-run outburst in the sixth inning to blow past the Bridgeport Bluefish 8-1 Sunday afternoon at Bethpage Ballpark.

The game was scoreless until the top of the fifth, when Dennis O’Grady allowed a one-out triple to Andrew Lambo. Lambo scored on a wild pitch to give the Bluefish a 1-0 lead in the middle innings.

O’Grady allowed just the one run in five innings of work, scattering four hits and three walks while striking out five and getting no decision. Eury De La Rosa allowed a two-out double to Sean Burroughs in the sixth, but threw a scoreless inning.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Ducks offense exploded for a five-spot to take a lead they would never surrender. Danny Burawa walked  the only three batters he faced to load the bases with nobody out, before Brian Moran struck out Angelo Songco for the first out.

Zac Grotz then came in and promptly allowed Jordan Pacheco to poke a two-run single through the right side of the infield. Elmer Reyes followed with an RBI single, and Marc Krauss broke the game open with a two-run double to extend the Long Island lead to 5-1.

Zac Treece and Patrick Crider turned in scoreless frames of relief in the seventh and eighth innings, and homers from Songco and Krauss in the bottom of the eighth plated three more runs for the Ducks.

Rob Rogers worked around an infield single in the ninth to close out the 8-1 win in a non-save situation.

ON THE MOUND: Long Island opens the series by sending southpaw Rafael Perez to the slab, making his ninth start of the season. The former big leaguer is 4-1 with a 3.05 ERA on the year, and has struck out 35 and walked just eight in 41.1 innings pitched. In his last start on June 8 at New Britain, Perez threw six innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits, while striking out three and not issuing a walk. In his last three starts, the lefty has a 0.60 ERA (1 ER/15.0 IP), and has struck out 14 and walked just two, going 2-0. That includes a start against Somerset on May 19 at Bethpage Ballpark, where he went five scoreless innings, striking out six.

The Patriots roll with Rick Teasley, making his 10th appearance of the season and sixth start overall. The port paw is 4-1 on the season with a 2.21 ERA and has struck out 28 and walked nine in 44.2 innings pitched this season. In his last start on June 7 against Bridgeport, Teasley allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits in 7.2 innings, getting the win in a 7-2 Patriots victory. In two appearances against the Ducks this season, Teasley sports a 1.54 ERA (2 ER/11.2 IP) and has allowed six hits while striking out 11 and not walking a batter.
