MURPHY MASTERFUL AS DUCKS EVEN SERIES

Southpaw tosses fourth consecutive quality start

(Camden, N.J., July 23, 2013) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Camden Riversharks 7-3 on Tuesday night in the middle game of a three-game series at Campbell’s Field.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from the victory

Long Island exploded for three runs in the first inning against Riversharks starter A.J. Battisto. A run-scoring error, a sac fly to right by Bill Hall and a RBI single to center by Adam Bailey did the damage. Camden cut the lead to two in the bottom of the second on a RBI single to left by Burt Reynolds off Ducks starter Bill Murphy.

The teams traded runs in the fourth inning, with a run-scoring error plating Hall and a RBI single to left by Juan Martinez making the score 4-2. A run in the sixth and two more in the eighth for Long Island increased the lead to five. Bailey scored on a double play and delivered a RBI triple to right while Ray Navarrete lifted a sac fly to left to highlight the scoring.

Murphy (2-10) pitched well for the win, tossing six innings, allowing just two runs on six hits while striking out four. Battisto (3-1) suffered the loss, yielding seven run (five earned) on 13 hits with five strikeouts in seven and one-third innings.

Bailey led Long Island with three hits, two RBI and two runs scored while Hall, Bryant Nelson and Ralph Henriquez each added two hits.
