Game 81: Ducks vs. Bees

DE6I0525GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (40-40, 4-6) take on the New Britain Bees (31-48, 5-4) to open up a three-game series Monday night at Bethpage Ballpark. This marks the first of 10 second-half games between Long Island and New Britain, and the first trip to the Island for the Bees since April 28-30.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Somerset Patriots 3-2 on Sunday night in the finale of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

Somerset took an early 2-0 lead with single runs in the first and second inning off Ducks starter Dennis O’Grady. A wild pitch that plated Alfredo Rodriguez and a solo home run to right-center field off the bat of Carlos Guzman did the damage. The Patriots added an insurance run in the eighth inning on back-to-back doubles by Christian Marrero and pinch-hitter Adam Donachie.

Long Island put together a ninth inning rally against Patriots reliever Ronnie Shaban. RBI doubles from Marc Krauss and Ruben Gotay trimmed the deficit to 3-2. However, the Ducks were unable to plate the tying run.

Somerset starter Lucas Irvine (6-2) earned the win with six shutout innings, allowing one hit and four walks while striking out five. O’Grady (4-6) took the loss, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings with two strikeouts. Ronnie Shaban collected his sixth save of the year despite allowing two runs on two hits and a walk in the ninth.

ON THE MOUND: Tyler Levine gets the start for the Ducks in the series opener this evening. In 15 appearances (one start), the right-hander is 2-0 with a 3.19 ERA. Used mostly in mop-up duty, Levine is working on a streak of 4.1 consecutive scoreless innings, and since the beginning of June sports a 1.00 ERA (1 ER/9 IP). The East Meadow, N.Y. native last pitched on July 8, throwing a 1-2-3 inning of relief at Southern Maryland. In his one start this year on May 3 at York, Levine got the win throwing seven innings and allowing two runs on four hits, walking one and striking out a season-high five.

The Bees send southpaw Greg Nappo to the mound to oppose Levine, making his fourth appearance and second start with the team. The lefty has no record and a 6.00 ERA with New Britain, having allowed six hits, walking one and striking out one in six innings. Before joining the Bees, Nappo was pitching in the Miami Marlins organization, where he split time this year with the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (AA, Southern League) and the New Orleans Baby Cakes (AAA, Pacific Coast League).

Game 77: Ducks at Blue Crabs

img_2085.jpgGAME TIME/LOCATION: 2:05 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium (Waldorf, Md.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (38-38, 2-4) finish their three-game series this afternoon against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (42-32, 4-1). After dropping the first two games of the series, the Ducks will look to salvage the final game behind ace pitcher John Brownell. This marks the final game for both teams before the 2017 Atlantic League All-Star Game.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks fell to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 7-2 on Saturday night at Regency Furniture Stadium in the middle game of a three-game series.

The Blue Crabs got on the board first, plating two runs against Ducks starter Rafael Perez in the bottom of the first. Jose Lozada doubled, stole third and scored on a wild pitch, and Michael Snyder was plated by a Cory Vaughn single to hand Southern Maryland a 2-0 lead.

Long Island retaliated in the top of the third when Delta Cleary Jr. beat out an infield single and stole second base against Drew Hayes (4-3). He advanced to third on a Lew Ford groundout and scored on a wild pitch to cut the deficit to 2-1.

In the bottom of the third, Snyder connected on a two-run home run off Perez (5-5) to put the Blue Crabs up 4-1. Perez threw five innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and striking out a season-high eight while walking three.

Southern Maryland rallied for three runs in the bottom of the seventh against Long Island reliever Stephen De La Cruz to expand the gap to 7-1.

Anthony Vega tripled against Zack Thornton in the top of the eighth and scored on a Cleary Jr. sacrifice fly, but the Ducks went quietly in the ninth to fall 7-2.

Ruben Gotay and Lew Ford led the Ducks with two hits each.

ON THE MOUND: John Brownell gets the call for the Ducks in Sunday’s matinee. In 14 starts this year, the righty is 6-1 with a 2.89 ERA, and has struck out 50 and walked 26 in 87.1 innings. In his last outing on July 4, Brownell twirled his third straight quality start and got the win over the Lancaster Barnstormers. He threw a season-high 117 pitches, and allowed three runs on five hits in six innings of work. “Brownie” has made two starts against Southern Maryland this year, and is 1-0 with a 2.46 ERA.

He will be opposed by right-hander Brian Grening of the Blue Crabs. Grening is 7-2 with a 2.71 ERA in 14 starts with the Blue Crabs this season, and has struck out 58 and walked only 12 in 98.0 innings pitched. In his last start, the righty threw a complete game three-hitter against the Sugar Land Skeeters on July 3, giving up just one run and not walking a batter. Grening has started twice against the Ducks this season, and is 1-0, and has allowed just 3 runs in 13.0 innings.

Game 73: Ducks vs. Barnstormers

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

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (37-35, 1-1) continue their four-game series with the Lancaster Barnstormers (39-32, 1-1) after an offensive explosion on Independence Day. This is the third matchup between the Ducks and Barnstormers in the second half of the season, who will play 13 times in the second half.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Lancaster Barnstormers 9-3 on Tuesday night before a past-capacity crowd of 7,248, the largest crowd of the season at Bethpage Ballpark.

Long Island took advantage of three Barnstormers miscues in the second inning to take a 2-0 lead. A throwing error by Lancaster starter Jarret Leverett and a fielding error by third baseman Garrett Weber did the damage. Another run in the third inning on Angelo Songco’s sacrifice fly to center field stretched the lead to three.

The Barnstormers closed to within one in the third inning on a solo home run to right by Caleb Gindl and an RBI single to left by Lastings Milledge off of Ducks starter John Brownell. However, Dan Lyons launched a two-run homer to left in the bottom of the frame, restoring the lead to three at 5-2.

Long Island blew the game open with a four-run fifth inning. Ruben Gotay’s three-run home run down the left field line and a run-scoring error off the bat of Delta Cleary Jr. highlighted the frame. Weber lifted a sac fly to right in the sixth to trim Lancaster’s deficit to 9-3, but Anderson De La Rosa flew out to leave the bases loaded.

Brownell (6-1) earned the win, tossing six innings of three-run ball, yielding five hits and three walks while striking out four. Leverett (4-4) suffered the loss, surrendering nine runs (seven earned) on 15 hits and a walk over four and one-third innings. Patrick Crider, Rob Rogers and David Aardsma combined to retire nine straight Barnstormers batters over the final three innings and struck out three.

Giovanny Alfonzo had four hits in four at bats to lead the Flock, and Fehlandt Lentini added three hits. Gotay finished with two hits, three RBI and two runs, while Lyons drove in two runs and scored twice.

ON THE MOUND: Long Island hands the ball to Matt Larkins to make his 15th appearance and 14th start of the season. Larkins is 2-6 with a 4.50 ERA this season and has struck out 60 and walked only 19 in 72.0 innings. The right-hander’s 7.5 K/9.0 IP ratio is the highest mark of his career, which he has impressively recorded while maintaining a steady walk rate with the rest of his career. In his last start on June 30 against Southern Maryland, Larkins got no decision after allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits in seven innings. The Ducks won the game 5-3, and Larkins struck out five and walked none. He has not faced the Barnstormers yet this season.

The Barnstormers will roll with former Baltimore Oriole Brad Bergesen, who will be making his 13th start of the year. So far, he is 4-5 with a 4.75 ERA and has a 51:18 K:BB ratio in 70.0 innings. The right-hander has allowed 83 hits and opponents are hitting .289 against him. In his last start on June 30 against Somerset, Bergesen was rocked for six runs on six hits in 4.2 innings, but got no decision in a 9-7 Lancaster victory. In his lone appearance against the Ducks on May 27, Bergesen threw five shutout innings and allowed just two hits in a 10-0 Barnstormers win.

Game 71: Ducks vs. Barnstormers

DE6I3183GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (36-34, 0-0) begin the second half of the 2017 season by hosting the Lancaster Barnstormers (38-31, 0-0) at Bethpage Ballpark tonight. The Ducks are in the midst of a seven-game homestand which began with a three-game sweep of the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks blasted three home runs in the first three innings to power past the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 10-5 on Sunday night in the finale of a three-game series and final game of the season’s first half at Bethpage Ballpark.

The Ducks jumped out to an early 6-0 lead thanks to the trio of home runs off of Blue Crabs starter Drew Hayes. Lew Ford’s two-run homer to left in the first inning, Giovanny Alfonzo’s solo blast to left in the second and Elmer Reyes’ three-run dinger to left in the third did the damage.

Southern Maryland got on the scoreboard in the fourth when Michael Snyder hit a solo homer to left off Ducks starter Dennis O’Grady. Long Island grabbed the six-run advantage back in the bottom of the frame when Ruben Gotay scored on a wild pitch.

Another homer by Snyder to right in the sixth closed the gap to 7-2, but two runs scored for the Flock in the bottom of the inning on a balk and an error. The Blue Crabs got to within 9-5 in the seventh thanks to an RBI single by L.J. Hoes and a two-run triple by Zach Wilson. However, a run-scoring double play ball in the bottom of the seventh rounded out the scoring for the night.

O’Grady (4-5) collected the win, pitching six and two-thirds innings and allowing five runs on eight hits and two walks with a strikeout. Hayes (3-3) took the loss, giving up six runs on five hits and two walks over just three innings with three strikeouts. Patrick Crider, Rob Rogers and Amalio Diaz combined to pitch 2.1 scoreless innings of relief.

Alfonzo led the Flock with four hits on the night, adding an RBI and two runs. Reyes added three hits, three RBI and a run, while Ford finished with two hits, two RBI and two runs.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks send Rafael Perez to the mound to begin the second half of the season, making his 13th start of the year. The southpaw is 5-3 with a 3.57 ERA, and sports a sterling 44:13 K:BB ratio in 63.0 innings pitched. The former big-leaguer took the loss in his last start on June 28 at Sugar Land, allowing three runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings pitched. In his one previous outing against Lancaster, Perez allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings on June 18, getting a win in a 6-2 Ducks triumph.

Lancaster counters with a lefty of their own in Rommie Lewis. The former Toronto Blue Jay makes his 13th start and 14th overall appearance of the season for the Barnstormers, and has recorded a 4-5 record with a 5.87 ERA. Lewis has allowed an astounding 94 hits in 61.1 innings pitched, and has a 55:26 K:BB ratio. The southpaw is in his fifth year in the Atlantic League, having previously spent a season with Bridgeport (2012) and three years with York (2013-15). In his lone appearance against the Ducks in 2017, Lewis threw six shutout innings on June 17 at Clipper Magazine Stadium, scattering five hits and one walk while striking out three in a 10-0 Lancaster win.

Game 70: Ducks vs. Blue Crabs

Dennis O'Grady (1)GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (35-34) continue their three-game series with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (38-30) tonight at Bethpage Ballpark. Tonight’s contest is the final game of the first half of the 2017 season and the Ducks will look to complete a sweep of the Blue Crabs after winning on Friday and Saturday night with thrilling comebacks in the bottom of the eighth inning.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks scored eight runs in the eighth inning of Saturday night’s ballgame to defeat the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 10-8 in the middle game of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

Long Island took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a sacrifice fly to center field by Lew Ford. Southern Maryland tied the game at one in the third on Brian Bistagne’s sac fly to right.

The Blue Crabs jumped in front with two runs in the sixth on an RBI double by Devon Rodriguez and a wild pitch that scored Michael Snyder. A four-run seventh inning extended the lead to 7-1. L.J. Hoes’ RBI double, Snyder’s RBI single and a two-run single by Rodriguez did the damage.

Ruben Gotay launched a solo homer to right-center in the seventh to close the gap to five. The Ducks then sent 11 men to the plate and scored eight runs in the eighth inning to take a 10-7 lead. Ford’s RBI single, a two-run double by Marc Krauss and a two-run triple by Dan Lyons highlighted the inning.

Southern Maryland got to within 10-8 in the ninth on Cory Vaughn’s RBI groundout. However, Edwin Garcia popped out with the bases loaded to end the game.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Alfredo Simon pitched five and one-third innings for the Ducks, yielding three runs on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts. Daryl Thompson tossed seven innings for the Blue Crabs, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out three. Zac Treece (6-1) picked up the win after pitching a scoreless eighth inning, and Cody Eppley (1-3) suffered the loss, giving up four runs (three earned) on two hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning. Rob Rogers collected his second save despite yielding a run on two hits and two walks in the ninth.

Ford, Angelo Songco and Delta Cleary Jr. each had two hits to lead the Flock. Ford, Krauss, Gotay and Lyons each drove in a pair of runs.

ON THE MOUND: The Ducks send Dennis O’Grady to the mound Sunday afternoon, making his 15th appearance and 11th overall start of the season. O’Grady is 3-5 with a 4.86 ERA in 61.0 innings this year, and has struck out 57 and walked 35. In his last start on June 27 at Sugar Land, the Floral Park native allowed six runs on seven hits in six innings of work, getting tagged with his third straight loss. He has faced Southern Maryland once this season as a reliever, throwing two scoreless innings on April 21.

The Blue Crabs call on Drew Hayes to make the start in the series finale, which will be his 10th start of the year. Hayes has pitched to a 3-2 record with a 3.88 ERA in 48.2 innings, striking 36 and walking 19. In his last outing on June 27 at Somerset, Hayes threw seven shutout innings, allowing just two hits to get the win in a 6-3 Blue Crabs win. The McKenzie, Tennessee native has not faced the Ducks this season after signing with the Blue Crabs on May 13.
