The Long Island Ducks scored six runs in the top of the ninth inning to secure a come-from-behind 9-4 win over Lancaster in Game 2 of the Atlantic League Championship Series on Thursday night.

The best-of-5 series is now even at 1-1. It shifts to Long Island for Game 3 on Friday.

The visiting Ducks scored all six of their runs in the ninth on five hits off of Barnstormers' closer Tim Hamulack. Long Island took the advantage early with a run in the first. Lancaster later took the lead with a pair of back-to-back homers in the fourth. The first came on a two-run shot from Ryan Harvey and the second on a solo shot from Travis Denker. Harvey now has two homers in the series and has homered in each of the last three playoff games.

Long Island came back to tie it at 3-3 with a run each in the fifth and sixth, but Lancaster answered with a run in the bottom of the sixth to get the lead back.

Long Island right-hander Josh Lansford (2-0) picked up the win with two scoreless innings in relief.
