LATE HOMERS DOOM DUCKS

Bluefish score six in final three innings to even series

(Central Islip, N.Y., June 26, 2013) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Bridgeport Bluefish 7-3 on Wednesday night in the fourth game of a five-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

GAME AUDIO: Bill Hall and Bryant Nelson collect RBI singles

POSTGAME VIDEO: Kevin Baez and Bill Hall talk about the tough loss

The Ducks opened the scoring on Bill Hall’s RBI single to left in the first inning off Bluefish starter Kelvin Villa. A Bryant Nelson RBI single in the third stretched the lead to two. Daniel Mayora’s run-scoring single to center in the fifth inning off Ducks starter Matt Way put the Bluefish on the board.

Bridgeport took their first lead of the game in the seventh when Mayora hit a two-run home run to left. Yusuf Carter’s grand slam to left-center in the eighth put the game out of reach.

Way did not factor into the decision, allowing a run on two hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in five innings. Villa (2-2) collected the win, tossing seven innings, allowing two runs on 12 hits while striking out seven. Bob Zimmermann (0-1) took the loss, surrendering two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk in two innings of relief.

Hall led the Ducks with three hits while Nelson, Joash Brodin and P.J. Phillips each added two.

The Ducks and Bluefish wrap up their five-game set on Thursday night. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m., with the Bethpage Ballpark gates opening at a special time of 2:15 for a baseball game between the Boldest Baseball Team (New York Corrections Officers) and the United States Military All-Stars to honor our wounded veterans. The first 1,500 fans in attendance will receive Quackers, courtesy of Newsday. Southpaw James Houser gets the start for Long Island against Bluefish right-hander Josh Butler.
