The Ducks broke through for the game’s first runs in the fifth off of Lancaster starter Joe Gardner. After an error from Barnstormers shortstop Lance Zawadzki to start the frame, Long Island put together three straight two-out hits. Prentice Redman’s RBI double and Bryan Sabatella’s RBI single made it 2-0 Ducks.

Jon Griffin extended the lead to 4-0 in the sixth with a two-run homer to right field. Mike Blanke reached on an error at first base in the eighth that scored Griffin and made it 5-0 Long Island. Lancaster was unable to respond.

Ducks starter John Brownell (7-2) earned the win for Long Island, throwing nine shutout innings for a complete game. He allowed four hits and two walks while striking out five.
