POSTGAME VIDEO: Kevin Baez, Dan Lyons and Jordan Pacheco talk about the win

Long Island opened the scoring with a three-run second inning against Patriots starter Will Oliver. A two-run double by Jordan Pacheco and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Dan Lyons highlighted the inning. Scott Kelly hit an inside-the-park solo homer in the third inning off Ducks starter Rafael Perez, but an RBI single in the bottom of the frame by Ruben Gotay made it a 4-1 game.

Somerset grabbed another run in the fourth on an RBI single by Carlos Guzman, but the Ducks responded once again with an RBI double off the bat of Quintin Berry in the bottom of the inning to get their three-run advantage back. In the sixth, Lyons drove an opposite-field two-run homer to increase Long Island’s advantage to 7-2.

The Patriots tried to rally back in the eighth inning, plating a pair of runs on an RBI infield single from Kelly and a bases loaded walk to Alfredo Rodriguez. However, Lew Ford ran down a fly ball to left from Christian Marrero to strand the tying runs on base.

Perez (6-5) earned the win, tossing six innings and allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight. Oliver (3-2) suffered the loss, surrendering seven runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings with six strikeouts. David Aardsma collected his eighth save of the season with one and one-third scoreless innings of relief.

Pacheco led the Flock with three hits, while Lyons added two. Lyons drove in three runs and scored twice, while Pacheco picked up two RBI and a run.
