MISSED OPPORTUNITIES COST DUCKS IN SERIES OPENER

10-game winning streak ends in pitcher’s duel

(Sugar Land, Texas, June 23, 2015) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Sugar Land Skeeters 2-1 on Tuesday night in the opener of a six-game series at Constellation Field.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from the series opener

Sugar Land struck first in the second inning on a solo home run to left center-field by Chris Wallace off of Ducks starter Ian Marshall. Another run in the second on Travis Scott’s sacrifice fly to right extended the lead to 2-0.

The Ducks rallied for a run in the ninth against John Lujan on Bryan Sabatella’s RBI fielder’s choice. However, a groundout to short by Delta Cleary, Jr. stranded the tying run on base.

Skeeters starter Josh Geer (2-1) earned the win, tossing six innings, allowing seven hits while striking out seven. Marshall (3-3) suffered the hard luck loss, pitching seven innings and giving up two runs on eight hits and a walk with two strikeouts. John Lujan picked up his sixth save despite allowing a run on two hits in the ninth.

Sabatella, Lew Ford, Randy Ruiz and Cody Puckett each had two hits to lead the Flock.
