DUCKS DROP SUNDAY MATINEE IN SOMERSET

Patriots grab series lead

(Bridgewater, N.J., June 30, 2013) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Somerset Patriots 7-1 on Sunday afternoon in the third game of a four-game series at TD Bank Ballpark.

GAME AUDIO: Adam Bailey's RBI double

Somerset took a 1-0 lead in the third on a solo homer down the left field line by Bobby Stevens off Ducks starter Pete Budkevics. Following an 11-minute rain delay, two more runs in the fifth on a sacrifice fly to center by Jeff Baisley and a RBI single to right by Cory Aldridge extended the lead to 3-0.

A three-run sixth inning ballooned the lead to six. A RBI single to center by Eddy Martinez-Esteve and a two-run fielding error did the damage. Adam Donachie’s solo home run to left in the seventh rounded out the scoring for Somerset, and Adam Bailey added a RBI double in the ninth for Long Island.

Patriots starter Erik Arnesen (6-1) earned the win, tossing eight innings, allowing one unearned run on five hits and three walks while striking out four. Budkevics (0-1) took the loss, surrendering three runs (one earned) on five hits and four walks while striking out four in five innings.

Josh Barfield led the Flock with two hits.
