Sugar Land took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on a solo home run to left-center field by Denny Almonte off Ducks starter Jared Lansford. Another run in the fourth on a two-out passed ball that scored Almonte doubled the lead to two.

Long Island got on the scoreboard in the sixth on C.J. Retherford’s two-out RBI single to left. The Ducks rallied to put runners at second and third with one out in the ninth, but they could not pull even.

Lansford (8-5) suffered the hard-luck loss, yielding two runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts over seven and two-thirds innings.
