LONG ISLAND DUCKS: The Quack Attack Erupted For Five Runs In First. Even Series Against River Sharks.
The Ducks jumped out to a five run lead in the first inning by sending ten men to the plate and the pitching made it hold up. Tonight's final score in Camden N.J. was Ducks 5; - River Sharks 2.
Mike Parisi picked up the win in his Ducks' debut; pitching six innings while giving up six hits; allowing one run; three walks and striking out three. Ehren Wasserman came on to pitch in the seventh inning. He promptly pitched himself into a second and third base situation but escaped with only one run scored. Valerio De Los Santos and Bubbie Buzachero finished things out for Long Island. For Buzachero, it was his first save in three appearances this season.
1B-Freddie Thon drove in two runs for Long Island tonight and was 2 for 4 in the game. LF-Kraig Binick was 3 for 5 (three singles) on the night. Ray Naverret had his second consecutive three-hit night (3 for 5) with a run scored. John Rodriguez, Matt Padget, and Dan Lyons had an RBI each for Long Island.
The Ducks avoided losing their third game in a row while gaining their third victory of the season. They are now 3-2 for the season. Tomorrow they'll play the rubber game of the series against the Camden River Sharks before going home for the first time this season and having their Season Opener on Friday against Bridgeport.
The Von Hayse managed Camden River Sharks are now 1-4 to start the season.
