SOMERSET SLUGS WAY PAST DUCKS

Nine unanswered runs erase early 5-0 lead

(Bridgewater, N.J., Sept. 13, 2013) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Somerset Patriots 9-5 on Friday night in the first game of a three-game series at TD Bank Ballpark.

GAME AUDIO: Long Island scores five runs over the first two innings

The Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning off Patriots starter David Harden. Josh Barfield’s RBI triple and Bill Hall’s sac fly to right highlighted the inning. Three more in the third on a run-scoring error, a RBI single by Lew Ford and a RBI double by Barfield increased the advantage to five.

Somerset responded with two in the second off Ducks starter Bill Murphy. Corey Smith’s solo homer and a sac fly from Angel Sanchez cut the score to 5-2. Jeff Baisley’s two-strike, two-out three-run homer in the third tied the game at five.

Eddy Martinez-Esteve put the Pats on top with a solo homer in the fourth, and Smith added a two-run shot in the fifth to extend the lead to 8-5. Smith’s RBI single in the eighth rounded out the scoring.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Murphy allowed four runs on two hits and four walks in two and one-third innings while Harden gave up five runs (four earned) on six hits in four innings. Josh Lowey (14-8) picked up the win, tossing four scoreless innings while striking out six, and Bob Zimmermann (4-4) took the loss, surrendering four runs on six hits in two innings.

Ford, Barfield and Nelson each had two hits to pace the Flock.
