Bridgeport, CT - The Bridgeport Bluefish (9-8) were defeated by the Long Island Ducks (8-8), 5-4 at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard on Tuesday night.

The Bluefish scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the first inning on an RBI double by Sean Burroughs, which plated leadoff batter James Simmons who had reached first on an error by Long Island third basemen Chris McClendon. Burroughs then scored on a Prentice Redman sacrifice fly to center field for the second run of the game. Long Island then answered with two runs of their own in the top of the second frame. Second basemen Cody Puckett singled home Joash Brodin, who had also singled and then advanced to third on Adam Bailey’s base hit. Bailey then scored on a throwing error by Bridgeport’s Luis Rodriguez who was attempting to throw Jon Myers who was stealing second base.

Bridgeport added two runs in the bottom of the second on a two run home run by first basemen Cody Overbeck, which was his team leading third home run of the season. Luis Lopez scored on Overbeck’s home run after reaching on an error by Puckett.

The Ducks then scored one runs in the top of the fifth on an RBI single by Lew Ford, which scored Fehlandt Lentini who had singled to start the inning. Long Island then took the lead in top of the eighth after a bunt single by Dan Lyons was thrown away by reliever Scott Maine allowing Brian Peacock to score and Lyons to advance to third base. Lyons would score the go-ahead, and eventual winning run on a sacrifice fly to right field by Lentini.

Bridgeport starter Tomo Ohka collected a no decision after going five and two-third innings, allowing two earned runs with one strikeout. His counterpart, John Brownell (1-2) picked up the win after going seven innings, allowing just one earned run with six strikeouts.
