Game 78: Ducks vs. Patriots

Giovanny Alfonzo (2)GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Bethpage Ballpark (Central Islip, N.Y.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (39-38, 3-4) return to action out of the Atlantic League All-Star break and host the Somerset Patriots (44-32, 2-4) Friday night. The Ducks currently sit in third place on the Liberty Division standings, only one game behind the Bridgeport Bluefish for first place in the second half standings, while the Patriots sit in last, 1.5 games back.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks defeated the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 4-3 Sunday afternoon in the finale of a three-game series at Regency Furniture Stadium.

The Ducks scored two pitches into the game when Fehlandt Lentini crushed a Brian Grening fastball over the wall in left for a leadoff home run. Two batters later, Lew Ford deposited a pitch over the wall in left center for Long Island’s second homer of the frame, and Marc Krauss added a third round-tripper to extend a 3-0 lead.

Southern Maryland responded in the bottom of the second against John Brownell, with Brian Bistagne connecting for a two-run double to narrow the gap to 3-2. The Blue Crabs tied the game at three in the bottom of the third on a Cory Vaughn sacrifice fly.

In the top of the fifth the Ducks regained the lead when Lentini legged out an infield single, and a throwing error allowed him to advance to third. Delta Cleary Jr. lifted a sacrifice fly to center to score Lentini and give Long Island a 4-3 edge.

Brownell (7-1) threw his fourth-straight quality start, and his 10th overall on the season. The righty tossed seven innings, allowing three runs on seven hits, walking four and striking out seven. Grening (7-3) took the loss after allowing four runs (three earned) on 10 hits in eight innings. David Aardsma tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning to lock down his seventh save of the season.

Lentini led the Ducks by going 3-for-5 with a home run, an RBI and two runs scored.

ON THE MOUND: Matt Larkins gets the ball for the Ducks in the first game out of the break, looking to keep his stretch of strong pitching alive. In his last three starts, Larkins is 1-0 with a 1.17 ERA (3 ER/23 IP), and has allowed just 13 hits and has a 21:4 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Overall, the right-hander is 3-6 with a 4.00 ERA in 15 appearances (14 starts) this season. Larkins is enjoying a breakout season, striking out a career-high 7.8 batters per nine innings this year, while allowing fewer hits than he has in any other year of his six-year career.

He will be opposed by left-hander Efrain Nieves, who will be making just his fifth appearance and second start of the year. The second-year Patriot wis 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA in a small sample this season, and has walked eight batters and struck out four in eight innings pitched. In his last outing on July 7, Nieves allowed five runs (three earned) on four hits while walking four in three innings against the Sugar Land Skeeters in a 12-0 loss.

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 76: Ducks at Blue Crabs

IMG_2079GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium (Waldorf, Md.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (38-37, 2-3) continue their three-game series tonight against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (41-32, 3-1). The Ducks look to rebound from a tough loss Friday night, a tight contest which resulted in a last at-bat win for the Blue Crabs. Including tonight’s game, there are only two games remaining before the 2017 Atlantic League All-Star Game.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks fell to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 5-4 Friday night at Regency Furniture Stadium in the opener of a three-game series.

Angelo Songco started the scoring for the Ducks in the top of the first by lifting a sacrifice fly to the warning track in right field to score Fehlandt Lentini. Long Island loaded the bases later in the frame, but Southern Maryland starter Daryl Thompson was able to limit the damage.

In the bottom of the first the Blue Crabs got even against Ducks starter Dennis O’Grady, plating a run on a sacrifice fly by Zach Wilson.

The Ducks broke the tie in the top of the sixth, erupting for three runs against Thompson. With two outs, Giovanny Alfonzo lined a single into centerfield to score Marc Krauss, and then Dan Lyons doubled to left to score two more to hand Long Island a 4-1 lead.

Southern Maryland evened the ledger in the bottom of the sixth, responding for three runs against O’Grady, highlighted by a two-run single from Zach Cone.

After a 43-minute rain delay to start the top of the eighth inning the Blue Crabs took the lead for good in the bottom of the eighth, plating an unearned run against Patrick Crider (0-5) to take a 5-4 lead. Cody Eppley worked around a two-out single from Quintin Berry in the top of the ninth to seal his 22nd save of the year and make a winner of Craig Stem (1-1).

Neither starter factored into the decision. O’Grady allowed four runs on six hits in 5.1 innings, walking two and striking out one. Thompson yielded four runs (one earned) on nine hits in six frames, walking one and striking out four.

Berry went 3-for-5 with a stolen base and Krauss added a 2-for-3 day with a walk and a run scored to lead the Ducks on offense.

ON THE MOUND: Left-handed pitcher Rafael Perez takes the mound for the Ducks in the middle game of the three-game series, making his 14th start of the season. Perez is 5-4 with a 3.84 ERA on the season, and has a 49:13 K:BB ratio in 68.0 innings. The southpaw has lost his last two starts as the Ducks have been shutout in both of them, including in his last outing on July 3 against Lancaster. Perez allowed four runs on six hits in five innings in a 5-0 Barnstormers triumph. The lefty has made one start against Southern Maryland this year, resulting in no decision on April 21, where Perez allowed three runs in three innings in his first appearance of the year.

Righty Drew Hayes gets the call for the Blue Crabs to make his 11th start of the season. The former Cincinnati Reds hurler is 3-3 with a 4.70 ERA on the season, and has struck out 39 and walked 21 in 51.2 innings this season. The former Vanderbilt Commodore spent seven years in the Reds system and is in his first year in the Atlantic League with Southern Maryland in 2017. In his last start against Long Island on July 2, Hayes was beat up for six runs on five hits in three innings and got the loss in a 10-5 Ducks win.

Game 75: Ducks at Blue Crabs

IMG_8319

GAME TIME/LOCATION: 6:35 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium (Waldorf, Md.)

TONIGHT’S MATCHUP: The Long Island Ducks (38-36, 2-2) begin their final series before the All-Star break tonight against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (40-32, 2-1). The Ducks swept the last series against the Blue Crabs this past weekend at Bethpage Ballpark, temporarily preventing the club from clinching the Freedom Division First Half Championship.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 7-6 on Thursday night in the finale of a four-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

The Ducks dented the scoreboard first with four runs in the second inning off of Barnstormers starter Tommy Shirley. Jordan Pacheco’s RBI double, Giovanny Alfonzo’s RBI single and a two-run double by Fehlandt Lentini highlighted the scoring.

Lancaster rallied back to tie the game with a run in the fourth and three in the fifth off of Ducks starter Alfredo Simon. A run-scoring wild pitch, RBI doubles by Vladimir Frias and Caleb Gindl and an RBI triple by Tyler Clark did the damage.

Lew Ford put the Ducks back in front at 5-4 with a leadoff solo home run to left in the bottom of the fifth. A run-scoring fielder’s choice off the bat of Lastings Milledge in the sixth tied the game once again. Long Island took a 6-5 lead in the bottom of the eighth on Pacheco’s RBI infield single to third base. However, Gindl’s two-run homer to right in the ninth gave the Barnstormers the lead for good.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Simon pitched four and two-thirds innings, yielding four runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Shirley lasted three innings, giving up four runs on five hits and three walks with one strikeout. Scott Shuman (2-0) collected the win despite allowing a run on two hits and a walk in the eighth. Amalio Diaz (2-1) suffered the loss, surrendering two runs on two hits while striking out four in an inning and two-thirds. Anthony Carter picked up his 16th save with a scoreless ninth inning.

Five different Ducks had two hits apiece to lead the offense. Pacheco and Lentini each drove in two runs.

ON THE MOUND: Dennis O’Grady takes the mound for the Ducks in the series opener, making his 16th appearance and 12th start of the season. Overall, the right-hander is 4-5 with a 5.05 ERA for the Ducks, and has struck out 58 and walked 37 in 67.2 innings. O’Grady has struggled with command this year, walking at least two batters in 10 of his 11 starts, and at least three in eight. Last time out against Southern Maryland on July 2, the gritty righty threw 6.2 innings, allowing five runs on eight hits, striking out one and walking two while getting the win.

Meanwhile, Daryl Thompson gets the nod for Southern Maryland after being pushed back a day owing to a rain out yesterday. The All-Star righty is 5-4 with a 3.91 ERA, and in 89.2 innings, has struck out 73 and walked just 14. Last time out, Thompson allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings at Long Island on July 1, but got no decision in a 10-8 Ducks victory. In two starts against the Ducks this year, Thompson is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA.

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.
