In his longest outing of the year, Sean Jarrett pitched effectively through 6 innings, holding the Long Island Ducks to two runs on five hits. But it wasn't enough. The Ducks eeked out a 3-1 victory at Bethpage Ballpark this afternoon.
Long Island scored a run in each of the first two innings. In the first a Lew Ford sac fly scored Kennard Jones, in the second Kraig Binick scored on an error by first baseman Brian Burgamy.
Camden's only run (despite numerous chances, the Sharks offense sputtered today) came in the top of the fifth, when Toby Hall singled in Burgamy to bring the Sharks to within one.
But the Ducks tacked on one more in the seventh when Dan Lyons singled in Tom Pennino to make it 3-1.
Scary moment for the Ducks in the bottom of the fifth when a Sean Jarrett pitch hit Ray Navarette in the helmet. Navarette lay on the ground for several moments before slowly getting to one knee, and eventually being led off the field by the Ducks training staff.
