DUCKS STIFLED BY 'STORMERS


(Central Islip, N.Y., Aug. 16, 2012) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 4-1 on Thursday night in the first game of a four-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

POSTGAME VIDEO: Kevin Baez and Dan Lyons talk about the game

Lancaster jumped in front on Fehlandt Lentini’s RBI single to left off Ducks starter Bob Zimmermann. Two more runs in the fourth on a RBI double by Kyle Haines and a run-scoring single off the bat of Adam Godwin pushed the lead to three.

After Lancaster scored a run in the sixth, Dan Lyons would cut the deficit back to three on a RBI single in the bottom of the ninth. However, the Flock could not inch closer.

Pollok (11-1) earned the win, tossing six innings, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out two. Zimmermann (5-7) suffered the loss, yielding four runs (two earned) on six hits with four strikeouts in seven innings. Tim Hamulack earned his 25th save with a scoreless ninth.

The Ducks and Barnstormers continue their four-game set on Friday night. Game time is slated for 7:05 p.m., with the Bethpage Ballpark gates opening at 6:05. It’s the Sixth Annual Irish Heritage Night at the ballpark, and the first 1,500 fans in attendance will receive Sports Bottles, courtesy of The Nutty Irishman.
