(Camden, N.J., June 17, 2014) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Camden Riversharks 15-8 on Tuesday night in the opener of a four-game series at Campbell’s Field. With the win, the Ducks earned their 1,000th regular season victory in franchise history, becoming the third team in Atlantic League history to reach the milestone (Bridgeport Bluefish and Somerset Patriots). Included in the 1,000 victories are 11 half season division titles and two overall best records in the Atlantic League (2000, 82-58; 2011, 78-47).

Long Island jumped out to an early 6-0 lead with four runs in the second inning and two in the third off Camden starter Jay Voss. A bases loaded walk to Jan Vazquez, a two-run single by Dan Lyons, a sacrifice fly to left off the bat of Fehlandt Lentini and RBI singles from Jon Myers and Vazquez highlighted the scoring.

Ryan Strieby’s solo homer and Paddy Matera’s RBI single off Ducks starter John Brownell in the third trimmed the lead to four. However, another four-spot in the fourth put the Ducks on top 10-3. A two-run double by Lew Ford and a two-run triple by Adam Bailey did the damage. Randy Ruiz’s three-run homer to left in the fifth ballooned the lead to 10.

Camden scored twice more in the sixth, but a RBI double by Brendan Harris in the seventh and a run-scoring single from Lentini in the eighth rounded out the scoring for the Flock. A two-run homer by Bryan Pounds in the ninth closed the gap to 15-8. However, the ‘Sharks would get no closer.

Brownell (6-3) picked up the win, tossing six innings, allowing five runs on 11 hits while striking out four. Voss (1-3) suffered the loss, surrendering six runs on five hits and five walks in two and one-third innings.

Eight of the nine Ducks batters earned a hit. Seven had multiple hits and both scored and drove in at least one run. Ruiz and Lentini led the Flock with three hits apiece, and Ruiz set the pace with three RBI and three runs scored.
