TWO-OUT TROUBLES HURT DUCKS IN SERIES FINALE

Bluefish overcome early deficit to salvage series split with Flock

(Bridgeport, Conn., June 4, 2017) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Bridgeport Bluefish 6-1 on Sunday afternoon in the finale of a four-game series at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard.

GAME VIDEO: Giovanny Alfonzo's RBI single and diving stop at third base

Long Island opened the scoring in the top of the second inning on an RBI single to left field off of Bluefish starter Chris Rearick. Bridgeport took the lead with a pair of two-out runs off of Ducks starter Matt Larkins in the fourth on an RBI double by Jonathan Galvez and an RBI single by Tony Abreu.

A run-scoring fielder’s choice off the bat of Abreu in the sixth and a two-out, three-run home run to left field by Jose Cuevas increased the Bluefish lead to 6-1.

Rearick (4-1) earned the win, pitching six innings and allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out seven. Larkins (0-5) took the loss, yielding three runs on six hits in six innings with a season-high seven strikeouts.
