CAMDEN CLAIMS SLUGFEST AT THE DUCK POND

Teams combine for 16 runs and 26 hits in rubber game

Alex Hudak opened the scoring in the top of the first with a two-run home run to right off Ducks starter John Brownell. Lew Ford answered with a RBI single off Camden starter Jay Voss in the bottom of the frame to trim the deficit to 2-1.

The Riversharks ballooned their lead to five with a four-run third inning, with a three-run double by Paddy Matera highlighting the inning. After a run-scoring error in the bottom of the inning cut the lead to 6-2, a two-run base hit by Matera in the fourth pushed the advantage up to six.

The Ducks fought their way back to within two when Ford launched an opposite field grand slam in the fourth. However a two-run sixth inning for the ‘Sharks put the game out of reach.

Voss did not factor into the decision, tossing four innings, allowing six runs (five earned) on 10 hits and two walks. Sean Toler (1-0) earned the win after pitching two scoreless innings, yielding one hit while striking out one. Brownell (1-3) suffered the loss, surrendering eight runs (six earned) on eight hits and five walks with four strikeouts in five innings.

Joash Brodin led the Flock with four hits, while Ford added three hits, five RBI and two runs.

The Ducks continue their homestand on Monday night when they open a four-game series against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. Game time is slated for 6:35 p.m., with the Bethpage Ballpark gates opening at 5:35. Right-hander Bobby Blevins will get the start for Long Island against Southern Maryland righty Brian Baker.

Duck Tales: Joash Brodin earned his first four-hit game of the year by going 4-for-5 from the plate Sunday. It was the third four-hit game for the Ducks this season (Lew Ford and Fehlandt Lentini). It also marked Brodin’s fourth multi-hit game this season. Brodin has now hit safely in seven of his last nine games, raising his batting average from .135 to .238 in the process (13-for-32). In those nine games, Brodin has hit three home runs, scored six runs and driven in nine…Lew Ford’s grand slam in the fourth was his third home run of the season. The Ducks have now totaled 13 homers on the year and have gone deep in back-to-back games after not homering in five consecutive games…Ford also added three hits in the game to collect his team-high third three-hit game and ninth multi-hit game of 2014. He also picked up five RBI for the second time this season after doing so in game one of a doubleheader at Southern Maryland on May 1. Ford has now reached base safely in 14 consecutive games, the longest by a Duck this season…Cody Puckett collected a base hit to extend his hitting streak to a Ducks season-high 11 games. During the streak, the second baseman is batting .370 (17-for-46) with two doubles, six RBI and one run. He has raised his batting average from .237 to .309 during the 11 games…Sunday’s crowd of 5,103 at Bethpage Ballpark increased the all-time attendance at the Duck Pond to 5,983,474, which is also an Atlantic League record.
