SKEETERS RALLY PAST DUCKS IN EXTRAS

Former Duck Gorecki twice ties the game

Bryant Nelson drove in the first run of the game with a double in the first inning off Sugar Land starter Cesar Carrillo. The Ducks doubled their lead in the fourth on Ralph Henriquez’s RBI single to right. The Skeeters scratched two runs off Long Island starter Matt Way in the fourth on a wild pitch and a Ryan Langerhans RBI double.

The Ducks retook the lead in the sixth inning, with Adam Bailey driving in a run on a single, and another run scoring on a double play.
