(Central Islip, N.Y., April 16, 2022) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the Dogecoin Baseball Team 17-0 in a spring training game on Saturday afternoon at Fairfield Properties Ballpark.


The Ducks struck first in the opening inning on Johnni Turbo's RBI double and a sac fly off the bat of L.J. Mazzilli. A sacrifice fly to right field by Michael Wielansky in the second bumped up the Ducks lead to 3-0.


Long Island doubled the lead to six in the fourth on a two-run double by Vladimir Frias and an RBI single by Turbo. Three more runs came home in the sixth to make it a 9-0 game. Jesse Russo’s RBI single, Dylan Flynn’s hit by pitch with the bases loaded and Mazzilli’s sac foul fly did the damage.


Russo crushed a three-run home run to right in the seventh, making it 12-0. A five-run eighth, highlighted by Dustin Woodcock's three-run homer to right-center and RBI singles from Mazzilli and Mitch Calandra, rounded out the scoring.


Ducks starter Bennett Parry tossed three scoreless innings, allowing two hits and one walk while striking out three. Akeel Morris picked up the win after also pitching three scoreless frames, giving up a hit and three walks with three strikeouts. Frank Moscatiello, Cody Beckman and James Varela each pitched a scoreless inning of relief for the Flock.
