LATE LEAD SLIPS AWAY IN ROAD TRIP FINALE

Three-run eighth by Riversharks drops Ducks

(Camden, N.J., August 1, 2014) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Camden Riversharks 4-3 on Friday night in the final game of a three-game series at Campbell’s Field.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from the series finale

Cody Puckett put the Ducks on top with a solo homer to left in the second inning off Riversharks starter Fu-Te Ni. Brian Van Kirk tied the score in the bottom of the frame on a RBI double to right-center off Ducks starter Mitch Talbot.

It stayed that way until the sixth when Brendan Harris launched a two-run homer to left field to put Long Island up 3-1. However, Camden rallied with three runs in the eighth on a two-run homer to left-center by Bryan Pounds and a RBI single by Jose Morales to take the lead for good.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Talbot tossed six innings, allowing just one run on four hits and two walks while striking out seven. Ni lasted seven innings, yielding three runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts. T.J. Hose (4-7) picked up the win with a scoreless inning of relief, walking two and striking out one. Eric Niesen (3-3) suffered the loss, surrendering a run on a hit and two walks in two-thirds of an inning. Matt Gorgen earned his 15th save of the year with a scoreless ninth inning.

Jon Myers led the Flock with two hits, while Harris finished with two RBI.
