LATE RALLY FALLS SHORT IN SERIES FINALE

Six-run second inning too much for Ducks to overcome
 

(Central Islip, N.Y., May 16, 2013) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the York Revolution 7-6 on Thursday night in the final game of a three-game series at Bethpage Ballpark.

GAME AUDIO: The Ducks four-run rally in the eighth inning

POSTGAME VIDEO: Kevin Baez, Gabe Suarez, and Eric Niesen talk about the game and the upcoming road trip

The Ducks struck first on a bases loaded walk to Ramon Castro in the first inning by Revolution starter Corey Thurman. York would respond with six runs in the top of the second off Ducks starter Matt Way. RBI singles by Ruddy Yan, Andres Perez, Brian Burgamy and Andy Marte highlighted the scoring.

Long Island got a run back in the fourth on a solo home run to right by Joash Brodin. York added a run in the seventh, but a four-run bottom of the eighth by the Ducks closed the deficit to one. Four straight two-out RBI singles did the damage, but that was as close as the Ducks would come.

Thurman (2-4) earned the win, tossing six innings, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out one. Way (1-2) suffered the loss, giving up six runs on eight hits and two walks in just one and two-thirds innings of work. Juan Rincon earned his third save of the year with a scoreless ninth.

Adam Bailey led the Ducks with three hits in the game while Danny Perales and Gabe Suarez each added two.

The Ducks hit the road on Friday as they open a three-game series against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. Game time is slated for 7:05 p.m. from Regency Furniture Stadium. Right-hander Nick DeBarr takes the mound for the Ducks against Blue Crabs righty Ian Marshall. Fans can follow all the action live on the radio home of the Ducks, 103.9-FM WRCN, and online by
