Four-run eighth wins it for Long Island

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from the win

Bryant Nelson opened the scoring with a sacrifice fly off Blue Crabs starter Mike O’Connor in the third inning. Jose Salas tied the game with a sacrifice fly off Ducks starter Shaun Garceau in the sixth inning. Long Island took the lead in the eighth, with a P.J. Phillips two-run single to center, a run-scoring wild pitch, and a Kraig Binick RBI single putting the Ducks on top.
