LOREE, BATS BLANK RIVERSHARKS


(Camden, N.J., May 28, 2012) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Camden Riversharks 8-0 on Monday night in the first game of a four-game series at Campbell’s Field.

GAME AUDIO: Ray Navarrete's solo homer

GAME AUDIO: Dan Lyons drives in and scores on a run on a single

GAME AUDIO: Reid Gorecki's first homer as a Duck

Matt Esquivel got the Ducks started with a RBI single to center field in the first off Camden starter Mike McGuire. Long Island increased the lead to 4-0 with three more runs in the fourth. Ray Navarrete hit a solo homer, his fourth of the year, while Dan Lyons collected a RBI single, moved to second on the throw home and scored on a pair of Riversharks errors.

The scoring would continue throughout, as the Ducks added single runs in the fifth and eighth along with two in the ninth. A sac fly and a RBI double from Navarrete, a solo homer by Reid Gorecki, and a sac fly off the bat of Shawn Williams did the damage.

That was more than enough for Mike Loree (2-0) to earn the win, tossing seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits while striking out five. McGuire (2-3) took the loss, yielding five runs (four earned) on nine hits in four and one-third innings.

Esquivel led the way with four hits, while Gorecki added three. Navarrete’s three RBI also set the pace.
