(Bridgewater, N.J., May 28, 2015) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Somerset Patriots 1-0 in 12 innings on Thursday night in the second game of a four-game series at TD Bank Ballpark.

Ducks starter Mickey Jannis and Patriots starter Sean Bierman traded scoreless innings through the first eight frames of the ballgame. Jannis allowed just three hits while walking none and striking out eight. Bierman surrendered six hits while walking one and striking out four.

Sergio Perez and Bruce Kern combined to toss three scoreless innings of relief through the 11th for the Ducks. Andrew Carnigan, Buddy Boshers, and Daniel Sattler relieved Bierman and pitched scoreless baseball through the 12th for Somerset. Amalio Diaz began the bottom of the 12th for Long Island by walking Jonny Tucker. Tucker would steal second and later score the game-winning run on a single to right field from Aharon Eggleston.

Sattler (2-0) picked up the win by pitching a perfect inning of relief, striking out three batters. Diaz (0-1) suffered the loss, yielding the lone run of the game on one hit and one walk.

Bryan Sabatella and Jon Griffin led the way offensively for Long Island with two hits apiece.

The Ducks continue their four-game set with the Patriots on Friday night. Game time is slated for 7:05 p.m. from TD Bank Ballpark.
