Dan Johnson put the Ducks in front with a two-out RBI single in the first inning off Bees starter Cole Johnson. A run-scoring groundout in the second by James Skelton tied the game up at one apiece. Long Island took the lead back in the bottom of the inning on a three-run home run to center field by Anthony Vega.

The Bees closed to within 4-2 in the third on Jon Griffin’s RBI single off Duck starter Jack Snodgrass. The Ducks answered though with single runs in the fifth and sixth to push their lead to four. A wild pitch that scored Matt Wessinger and a solo homer to left by Mike Blanke rounded the scoring.

Snodgrass (5-4) earned the win, tossing six innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on eight hits and three walks while striking out six. Johnson (4-5) suffered the loss, giving up six runs on seven hits over six innings with five strikeouts.

Wessinger and Fehlandt Lentini each had two hits and a run to pace the Flock.
