LONG ISLAND DUCKS: Complete Weekend Sweep Over Bridgeport Bluefish in Season's First Ferry Cup Series; Extend Winning Streak to Nine Straight Games.

Southern Maryland, check.
Lancaster Barnstormers, check.
Bridgeport Bluefish, check.

The Long Island completed a series sweep against the Bridgeport Bluefish over the weekend, making it three consecutive series sweeps, and nine straight victories for the Flock.

If you're like me, and were concerned with the Ducks seeming lack of overall power heading into the season, fret no more...

During Sunday's series finale in Bridgeport, Lew Ford connected on his second home run of the season, as the Ducks cruised to a 9-4 victory.  On Saturday, newly acquired Nate Freiman hit a pair of home runs with four RBI during a 7-1 Game Three win.

The Long Island Ducks are presently 3rd in team average, 4th in the Atlantic League in OBP, and have scored the 3rd most runs to date, but as expected, they've hit the circuit's 2nd least home runs.

While their balanced attack is presently working out as hoped, the Flock are waddling strong based primarily on effective pitching.  They are number one in strikeouts, allowed both the 2nd least hits and earned runs, own the 3rd best ERA, are 4th in average against, but slip to 5th in team WHiP.

The Ducks are off Monday.

On Tuesday, the Ducks will host the invading Patriots for the first of a three game series.
