(Lancaster, Pa., May 11, 2022) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 9-0 on Wednesday night in the middle game of a three-game series at Clipper Magazine Stadium.
Lancaster opened the scoring in the second inning on Connor Lien’s RBI single and Trace Loehr’s sacrifice fly. Two more runs came home in the fourth for the Barnstormers against Ducks starter Hunter Caudelle on Anderson Feliz’s RBI double and Loehr’s run-scoring groundout.
It stayed that way until the seventh when Lancaster added four more runs. RBI singles by Andretty Cordero and Feliz along with two Ducks errors did the damage. An RBI fielder’s choice off the bat of Cordero in the eighth rounded out the scoring.
Barnstormers starter Brent Teller (2-1) earned the win, tossing eight scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out five. Caudelle (1-1) took the loss, giving up four runs on six hits and five walks over two and two-thirds innings with two strikeouts.
Rusney Castillo led the Ducks offensively with two hits.
