DUCKS STUNG BY BEES IN MATINEE AFFAIR

Haviland’s strong start leads New Britain

(Central Islip, N.Y., July 26, 2016) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the New Britain Bees 4-1 on Tuesday morning in the opener of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

GAME AUDIO: Dan Lyons' RBI single in the ninth

POSTGAME VIDEO: Kevin Baez and Delta Cleary Jr. talk about the game

New Britain took a 2-0 lead in the second inning on an RBI single by James McOwen and a sacrifice fly by Jake McGuiggan off Ducks starter Bobby Blevins. Single runs in the fourth and sixth extended the advantage to four. A pair of fielding errors scored McOwen and Greg Golson to account for the runs.

Long Island got on the scoreboard in the ninth courtesy of an RBI single to left field by Dan Lyons. However, they could not complete the comeback.

Bees starter Shawn Haviland (3-3) earned the win, tossing seven shutout innings, allowing six hits and one walk while striking out five. Blevins (1-5) took the loss, surrendering four runs (two earned) on 11 hits and one walk with four strikeouts in six innings.

Delta Cleary Jr. paced the Flock with three hits.
