OFFENSIVE EXPLOSION GIVES LONG ISLAND 2-0 SERIES LEAD

Ducks total 11 runs and 14 hits in blowout win over Patriots
 

(Central Islip, N.Y., Sept. 20, 2018) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Somerset Patriots 11-1 on Thursday night in Game Two of the Liberty Division Championship Series at Bethpage Ballpark. Long Island now leads the best-of-five series two games to none.


For the second night in a row, the Ducks put together a three-run third inning to take the lead. An RBI single to right field by Jordany Valdespin and a two-run to right by Daniel Fields highlighted the inning. A five-run fifth for the Flock off Patriots starter Stephen Perakslis extended the lead to eight. A sac fly off the bat of Valdespin, an RBI infield single by Lew Ford and a three-run home run to left by David Washington did the damage.

Somerset closed to within 8-1 in the seventh on an RBI single by Mike Fransoso. However, Ducks starter Jake Fisher escaped the jam, stranding two men on base. Washington responded with a three-run homer to right in the bottom of the frame to put the game out of reach at 11-1.

Fisher (1-0) earned the win, tossing seven innings of one-run ball, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out three. Perakslis (0-1) took the loss, surrendering eight runs on 11 hits over four and two-thirds innings with three strikeouts. Carlos Pimentel and Ashur Tolliver each turned in 1-2-3 innings in relief for the Ducks.

Every member of the Flock had at least one hit in the game. Washington led the offense with two hits, six RBIs and two runs scored. Fields added two hits, two RBIs and two runs, while Taylor Ard, Miles Williams and Dan Lyons each had two hits as well.
