The Long Island Ducks defeated the Lancaster Barnstormers 5-4 in waddle-off fashion on Sunday night, Oct. 7, in Game Five of the Atlantic League Championship Series at Bethpage Ballpark. The Ducks won the best-of-five series three games to two and were named the 2012 Atlantic League Champions.

After a Tommy Everidge homer in the second off Ducks starter Bobby Blevins, Long Island added another run in the bottom of the frame on a RBI single to right by Joash Brodin. Ryan Harvey’s solo homer in the fourth made the score 3-2, but a RBI double by Matt Esquivel in the fifth pushed the Ducks lead back to two. It stayed that way until the ninth, when the Barnstormers rallied for two runs to tie the game at four. Travis Denker’s solo homer and a run-scoring error highlighted the inning. However, in the bottom of the ninth, Long Island put runners at second and third with two outs for Dan Lyons, who laid down a bunt single to bring home Matt Esquivel from third with the winning run.
