Ducks win second straight

 

(Bridgeport, Conn., June 25, 2016) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Bridgeport Bluefish 2-1 in 10 innings on Saturday night in the third game of a four-game set at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from the victory

The Ducks opened the scoring in the top of the fifth inning on a Bluefish error. Delta Cleary Jr. hit a ground ball under the glove of Bluefish third baseman Josh Vitters, scoring Lew Ford. Bridgeport evened the score at one on Adron Chambers’ RBI fielder’s choice in the sixth.

Mike Dowd’s RBI single to right field in the tenth gave the Ducks a 2-1 lead. Amalio Diaz nailed down his second save in the tenth inning, stranding the tying run at third.

Neither starter factored in the decision. Long Island left-hander Jack Snodgrass allowed one run on four hits with six strikeouts and two walks over six innings.
