All of Sugar Land’s runs came in the fourth inning against Ducks starter Bobby Blevins. RBI singles from Ricky Hague, Jeremy Barfield and Wilfredo Rodriguez, along with a run-scoring throwing error, did the damage.

Long Island got on the scoreboard in the eighth on a two-out RBI single to center field by Fehlandt Lentini. They loaded the bases in the ninth, but were unable to complete the comeback.

Skeeters starter Aaron Thompson (6-3) earned the win with seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out two. Blevins (1-6) took the loss, giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks in seven innings with five strikeouts. Derrick Loop collected his 22nd save with a scoreless ninth despite yielding two hits and a walk.

Sean Burroughs led the Flock with a pair of hits.
