DUCKS RALLY BACK TWICE FOR WADDLE-OFF WIN

Long Island overcomes 4-0 and 5-4 deficits to earn series victory

(Central Islip, N.Y., Aug. 20, 2017) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Lancaster Barnstormers 6-5 in walk-off fashion on Sunday evening in the rubber game of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

GAME VIDEO: Highlights from Sunday's series finale

The Barnstormers took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on an RBI single by Nate Coronado off Ducks starter Henderson Alvarez. Josh Bell’s two-out, two-run double in the third stretched the lead to 3-0, and a passed ball that plated Sean Halton in the fourth extended the advantage to four.

Long Island closed to within 4-2 in the sixth on an RBI double by Marc Krauss and an RBI single by Ruben Gotay off Barnstormers starter Brad Bergesen. Angelo Songco tied the game at four in the eighth with a two-out, two-run homer to right on the first pitch he saw.

Lancaster took the lead back in the ninth on an RBI single up the middle by Anderson De La Rosa that scored Lastings Milledge. However, the Ducks answered back in the bottom of the frame to earn the win. Following back-to-back hits by Derrick Pyles and Audie Afenir, Delta Cleary Jr. laced an RBI single to right-center to tie the game at five. Dan Lyons followed with a sac fly to center that plated the winning run.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Alvarez pitched seven innings, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks with one strikeout. Bergesen lasted six and two-thirds innings, yielding two runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts. Patrick Crider (1-5) collected the win after striking out Beau Amaral for the final out of the ninth inning. Anthony Carter (4-3) suffered the loss, allowing two runs on three hits in one-third of an inning.

Five different Ducks collected two hits to lead the way. Songco finished with two hits, two RBI and a run, while Krauss totaled two hits, and RBI and two runs.
