DUCKS BLAST PAST BLUEFISH

Long Island ties season high with 17 hits

(Bridgeport, Conn, July 12, 2013) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Bridgeport Bluefish 8-0 on Friday night in a rain-shortened opening game of a three-game series at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from the victory


The Ducks opened the scoring when Bryant Nelson knocked a two-run double to left field in the first inning off Bluefish starter Pat Ahearne. Long Island kept rolling in the second, as Joash Brodin drove in a run with a single, Josh Barfield singled in two runs, and Bill Hall capped the four-run frame with a RBI single.

Brodin drove in another run with a single in the fifth inning, and Ramon Castro finished up the scoring with a RBI double in the eighth. The game was then called in the middle of the eighth inning as the inclement weather would not let up.

Long Island starter John Brownell (7-5) picked up the win, tossing seven innings of shutout baseball, allowing just four hits and one walk with six strikeouts. Ahearne (1-2) suffered the loss, giving up six runs on nine hits in one inning of work.

Brodin led the Ducks with four hits, while Nelson, Hall, Barfield, Ray Navarrete, Kraig Binick and Dan Lyons each recorded two. Brodin, Barfield, and Nelson each drove in two runs for the Ducks.

The Ducks continue their three-game series against Bridgeport on Saturday. First pitch from The Ballpark at Harbor Yard is scheduled for 6:35. Lefthander Bill Murphy takes the mound for the Ducks while southpaw Hunter Jones gets the start for Bridgeport.
