TWO-OUT HITS DOOM DUCKS IN LANCASTER

Barnstormers claim series opener with trio of two-out, two-run hits

(Lancaster, Pa., May 31, 2016) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 7-1 on Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game series at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

GAME AUDIO: Blake Tekotte's two-out RBI single

Blake Tekotte opened the scoring for the Ducks with a RBI single to left field in the fourth inning off Barnstormers starter Mike Lee. Josh Bell responded in the bottom of the frame with a two-out, two-run home run to right-center off Ducks starter John Brownell, putting Lancaster on top 2-1.

Two more runs came across for the Barnstormers in the fifth on a two-out, two-run single to right by Kevin Ahrens. Logan Schafer’s solo homer to right in the seventh and a Lance Zawadzki’s two-out, two-run homer to right in the eighth ballooned Lancaster’s advantage to 7-1.

Ryan Dennick (2-1) earned the win with two scoreless innings of relief, allowing just one walk while striking out four. Brownell (3-1) suffered the loss, giving up four runs on eight hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six innings. Lee did not factor into the decision but yielded a run on five hits and a walk while striking out two in four innings.
