DUCKS OUTSLUGGED BY BARNSTORMERS IN LANCASTER

Long Island’s 12 hits not enough

(Lancaster, Penn., July 11, 2014) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 10-4 on Friday night in the second game of a four-game series at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from Friday's contest

The Ducks struck first in the second inning on a two-out RBI double by Jon Myers off Barnstormers starter Chris Schwinden. Lancaster responded with three runs in the bottom of the frame on a RBI single by Dayton Buller and a two-run double by Grant Zawadzki.

Long Island pulled back within one in the third on a sac fly to left by Cody Puckett, but a Brock Kjeldgaard solo homer in the fourth pushed the lead back to two at 4-2. Lew Ford trimmed the deficit to one again with a two-out RBI single to left in the fifth.

Lancaster put the game out of reach with a four-run fifth. A RBI double by Cole Garner, a RBI single by Andrew Clark and a two-run double by Casey Frawley did the damage. A Puckett sac fly in the seventh and a two-run homer by Clark in the bottom of the inning rounded out the scoring.

Schwinden (9-1) got the win, tossing six innings, allowing three runs on 11 hits while striking out two. Garceau (8-2) took the loss, surrendering eight runs on 10 hits with three strikeouts in five innings.
