Lancaster jumped out to a 4-0 lead against Ducks starter Bobby Blevins with a run in the third and three in the fourth. Cole Garner’s solo homer and two-run double along with a RBI single by Fred Lewis did the damage.

Another run in the sixth increased the advantage to five, but Adam Bailey’s sac fly to center in the bottom of the sixth off Barnstormers starter Clayton Tanner trimmed it back to four at 5-1. Two more runs in the seventh for the Ducks on Fehlandt Lentini’s two-run single cut the deficit to two. However, a two-run single in the ninth by Garner put the game out of reach.

Tanner (1-0) earned the win, tossing six innings, allowing one run on six hits while striking out four. Blevins (1-1) suffered the loss, surrendering four runs on seven hits and four walks in five innings.

Lentini led the Flock with four hits and two RBI while Lew Ford chipped in with three hits.

Duck Tales: With four hits in the game, Fehlandt Lentini joined Lew Ford as the only two Ducks to earn four hits in a single game this season. Ford picked up four hits on Tuesday night against the Barnstormers. It was Lentini’s fourth multi-hit game of the year as well, and he drove in two runs to pick up his fourth multi-RBI game which leads the Flock…With three hits, Ford earned his second three-hit game of the year. He now leads the team with five multi-hit games in 2014 and has now earned four consecutive multi-hit contests. The last time he earned multiple hits in four straight games was back in 2011 when he earned five consecutive multi-hit games from July 16-21. The former big leaguer now has a five-game hitting streak, the longest by a Duck this season, and has raised his batting average from .185 to .367 in the process…Thursday’s crowd of 3,897 at Bethpage Ballpark increased the all-time attendance at the Duck Pond to 5,971,936. Long Island is now just 28,064 fans away from reaching the magical 6 million fan mark. Upon doing so, the Ducks will have achieved the milestone faster than any other professional sports team with a ballpark the size of Bethpage Ballpark (capacity 6,002)…Following the game, the Ducks reinstated right-handed pitcher Jared Lansford to the active list.
