(York, Pa., Sept. 19, 2019) – The Long Island Ducks shut out the York Revolution 2-0 on Thursday night in the finale of a four-game series at PeoplesBank Park and final road game of the 2019 regular season.
The Ducks opened the scoring in the first inning with an RBI single to left field from Hector Sanchez off Revolution starter Mitch Atkins. Back-to-back doubles by Sanchez and Deibinson Romero to begin the fourth increased the lead to two.
That was more than enough for Ducks starter Vin Mazzaro (11-4) to earn the win. The right-hander tossed six scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and three walks while striking out six batters. Atkins (11-6) suffered the loss, conceding two runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings with five strikeouts. Myles Smith picked up his second save with a 1-2-3 ninth inning, striking out one.
Sanchez led the Flock offensively with two hits, an RBI and a run scored, while David Washington added two doubles.
