BLUEFISH STRIKE FIRST IN FERRY CUP SERIES


(Bridgeport, Conn., May 1, 2012) – The Bridgeport Bluefish defeated the Long Island Ducks 8-2 on Tuesday night in the first game of the 2012 Ferry Cup Series at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard.

GAME AUDIO: Ryan Garko puts the Ducks ahead with a RBI single

The Ducks cracked the scoreboard in the first against Bluefish starter Gilbert De La Vara on Ryan Garko’s RBI single to center. Bridgeport responded with a pair of unearned runs in the third against Ducks starter Mike Loree. A RBI groundout from Ramon Vazquez and a run-scoring double off the bat of Brock Peterson gave the Bluefish a 2-1 lead.

Long Island pulled back even in the fourth on a RBI single to center by Dan Lyons. However, Bridgeport broke the tie with single runs in the sixth and seventh and added four more in the eighth, capped by Prentice Redman’s two-run double, to put the game out of reach.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Loree went five innings, allowing two unearned runs on five hits while striking out four, and De La Vara threw four innings, yielding two runs on eight hits with three punch-outs. Jonah Bayliss earned the win with three scoreless innings of relief, while Jeff Lyman took the loss, surrendering two runs on a hit and three walks in two innings of work.

Garko’s three hits paced the Ducks offensively, while Lyons and James McOwen each added two.
