BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Somerset Patriots (12-5) defeated the Long Island Ducks (11-8) 1-0 at TD Bank Ballpark on Friday night.

Both teams remained scoreless until the bottom of the ninth inning when Aaron Dudley delivered a one-out bases loaded sacrifice fly to win the game.

“I was thinking that all I needed to do was get something up and deep,” said Dudley. “He left a fastball up and I was able to put a good swing on it. I thought I hit it way harder than I did, but that wind brought it way back.”
