– The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 7-5 on Friday night in the second game of a four-game series at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

The Barnstormers took a 3-0 lead in the second inning on a RBI single by Anderson Feliz and a two-run double by Juan Apodaca off of Ducks starter John Brownell. The Ducks closed to within one on single runs in the fourth and fifth against Lancaster starter Madison Boer. A RBI double and a run-scoring infield single by Lew Ford did the damage.

In the bottom of the frame, Lancaster exploded for four runs with two outs to extend their advantage to 7-2. A two-run double by Brian Cavazos-Galvez, a RBI double by Luke Hughes and a RBI single by Feliz highlighted the inning. Long Island closed to within two on a two-run homer to left by Cody Puckett in the sixth and a run-scoring groundout by Ford in the seventh. However, they could not pull even.

Boer (4-3) picked up the victory, pitching six innings, allowing four runs on 11 hits and one walk while striking out four. Brownell (12-6) suffered the loss, surrendering seven runs on nine hits and three walks over four and two-thirds innings while striking out four.
