EARLY DEFICIT PROVES TOO LARGE FOR DUCKS

Four-run second inning lifts Lancaster over Long Island

Lancaster took a 1-0 lead the first inning on an RBI double to left field by Caleb Gindl off Ducks starter Darin Downs. Long Island responded with three runs in the second off Barnstormers starter Terry Doyle. Tyler Colvin’s mammoth leadoff solo home run to right and a two-run triple down the right field line by Anthony Vega put the Ducks in front 3-1.

The Barnstormers answered back with four more runs in the second to jump back ahead at 5-3. An RBI infield single by Lance Zawadzki, an RBI double by Kevin Ahrens and a two-run single to by Josh Bell did the damage.
