HARKIN CONTINUES WINNING WAYS FOR FLOCK

Right-hander earns fifth win in five starts, leading Ducks fourth straight win
 

(Central Islip, N.Y., Sept. 8, 2021) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs 4-2 on Wednesday night in the middle game of a three-game series at Fairfield Properties Ballpark.


Johnni Turbo broke the scoreless deadlock in the third inning with a leadoff solo home run to left field off Blue Crabs starter Daryl Thompson. Two more runs came across in the fourth when Hector Sanchez doubled down the right field line, scoring Deibinson Romero, and Chris Shaw scored on a throwing error.

Southern Maryland closed to within 3-1 in the fifth on Zach Collier’s RBI single to right off Ducks starter Scott Harkin. However, the Ducks got the run back in the bottom of the frame on Lew Ford’s sacrifice fly to right. Collier hit a solo homer to center field in the seventh, closing the gap to 4-2, but the Blue Crabs would get no closer.

Harkin (5-0) earned the win, tossing six innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out two. Thompson (11-3) took the loss, pitching all eight innings, yielding four runs (three earned) on eight hits and three walks with two strikeouts. Rob Griswold picked up his third save with two perfect innings of relief, striking out two.

L.J. Mazzilli led the Flock offensively with two hits. Shaw added a hit, a run and two walks.
