They have more wins in one season than any team in Atlantic League history and now they only need two more to secure the championship. The Barnstormers confidently dispose of the Long Island Ducks in Game 1 of a best-of-five series 5-1 at Clipper Magazine Stadium. Starting pitcher Duane Pollok tosses six shutout innings to earn the win. He allows just four hits and two walks while striking out five. Ryan Harvey is the hitting hero with a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning that breaks the game open.
The Barnstormers will host Game 2 against Long Island Thursday Night at 7pm before the series switches to New York for the remaining games. Lancaster is trying to win their second championship and first since 2006.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
