DUCKS BASH BARNSTORMERS WITH SIX-RUN SIXTH

Long Island earns 12th come-from-behind win of season

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from the come-from-behind win

POSTGAME VIDEO: Kevin Baez, Bobby Blevins and Lew Ford talk about the victory

Lancaster took a 2-0 lead in the second inning on a two-run home run to left by Casey Frawley off Ducks starter Bobby Blevins. It stayed that way until the bottom of the sixth when Long Island exploded for six runs and sent 11 batters to the plate. Two-run singles from Brendan Harris and Randy Ruiz and RBI singles from Lew Ford and Adam Bailey did the damage.

The Ducks added another run in the seventh on a passed ball with the bases loaded that scored Cody Puckett. The Barnstormers scored twice in the eighth on a two-run single by Wilson Batista, but a solo homer to left in the bottom of the frame by Jon Myers put the game out of reach.

Blevins (3-1) earned the win, tossing seven innings, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven. Barnstormers starter Chris Schwinden did not factor into the decision, allowing two runs on 11 hits in five and one-third innings. Pete Andrelczyk (0-4) took the loss, surrendering four runs on three hits and a walk to the five batters he faced.

Every Ducks batter reached base in the game, and eight of the nine batters either scored or drove in a run. Ford led the Flock with four hits, while Dan Lyons added three.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m., with gates opening at 5:35 p.m. Right-hander Shaun Garceau toes the rubber for the Ducks against Barnstormers righty Cody Scarpetta.

Duck Tales: Cody Puckett extended his on-base streak to 26 games with a walk in the sixth inning. That is now the longest on-base streak in the Atlantic League this season, one more than Lew Ford’s 25-game streak from May 3 to 30. The second baseman has at least one hit in 22 of the 26 games during the streak…Joash Brodin extended his on-base streak to 24 consecutive games with a single in the first. That’s the third-longest streak in the league this year…Jon Myers’ solo homer to left-center in the eighth was his first home run as a Duck and in the Atlantic League. The Missouri native led the Frontier League with 25 homers in 2013…With four hits in the game, Lew Ford earned his team-leading third four-hit game in 2014. He is now tied with Puckett for the team-lead with 15 multi-hit games this season…Bobby Blevins tossed his fourth quality start in his last five outings with seven innings of two-run ball. In that span, he has a 3.41 ERA and 25 strikeouts to eight walks. The third-year Duck now has 41 strikeouts on the season, which ranks him second in the Atlantic League behind teammate John Brownell (43).
