SKEETERS RALLY TO STUN DUCKS

Walk-off single ends Long Island’s winning streak at five

(Sugar Land, Texas, May 24, 2014) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Sugar Land Skeeters 3-2 on Saturday night in the second game of a four-game series at Constellation Field.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from Saturday's game

Neither side was able to push across a run until the sixth inning when Lew Ford delivered a two-out RBI single to left off Skeeters starter Chris Smith. Sugar Land tied the game in the bottom of the inning on a run-scoring groundout by Ryan Langerhans off Ducks starter Bobby Blevins.

The Ducks took the lead back in the seventh on Adam Bailey’s RBI single to right. However, the Skeeters pulled back even in the eighth when Adam Godwin scored on Travis Scott’s groundout to first. Sugar Land won it in the bottom of the ninth on a walk-off single to center by Langerhans.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Blevins pitched seven innings, allowing just one run on four hits while striking out two. Smith lasted six innings, surrendering a run on six hits with eight strikeouts. Gary Majewski (2-0) got the win after recording the final out in the top of the ninth inning. Josh Lansford (1-1) suffered the loss, surrendering a run on two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning.

Bailey, Ford, Fehlandt Lentini and Joash Brodin each had two hits to lead the Flock offensively.

The Ducks and Skeeters continue their four-game set on Sunday afternoon. Game time is slated for 3:05 p.m. EDT at Constellation Field. Right-hander Shaun Garceau toes the rubber for the Ducks against Skeeters southpaw Steve Hammond.
