EARLY RUNS PROVE COSTLY IN LANCASTER

Ducks drop series opener despite Ford’s four hits

(Lancaster, Penn., May 15, 2015) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Lancaster Barnstormers 6-2 on Friday night in the opener of a four-game series at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from the series opener in Lancaster

The Barnstormers took a 3-0 lead in the first inning on a three-run home run to right-center field by Blake Gailen off of Ducks starter Mark Rogers. Two more runs in the third on a wild pitch from Rogers and a sacrifice fly to left off the bat of Juan Apodaca extended the advantage to five.

Long Island plated its first run of the game in the fourth on a RBI single to center by Jon Griffin off of Lancaster starter Dan Osterbrock. However, a RBI double by Apodaca in the fifth pushed the lead back to five at 6-1. Lew Ford punched a two-out RBI single to center in the seventh, but that was as close as the Ducks would come.

Osterbrock (2-1) earned the win, tossing six innings, allowing one run on seven hits and two walks with one strikeout. Rogers (1-2) suffered the loss, giving up six runs on six hits and five walks while striking out four in five innings.

Ford led the Flock with his second four-hit game of the week, while Griffin added two for his second consecutive multi-hit game.
