The Opposition: The Ducks are also coming off a series in which they dropped two of three games on the road, with their series loss coming at Southern Maryland. Overall, Long Island- which won the first half Liberty Division title- is 50-35 on the season, and 10-5 in the second half.

Key to the Game: Fresh ‘pen- Thanks to Sean Gleason’s complete game Sunday afternoon against Bridgeport and last night's rain out, the Bees bullpen was able to get two days of much needed rest. With the Bees using only three relievers in Saturday night's extra inning win, manager Stan Cliburn will have several fresh options available should he need to turn to the bullpen.
