 (York, Pa., May 15, 2024) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the York Revolution 7-4 on Wednesday morning in the middle game of a three-game series at WellSpan Park.

The Ducks took a 2-0 lead in the first inning courtesy of a solo home run to right field produced by Jackie Bradley and an RBI single from Hector Gomez versus Revolution starter Ethan Lindow. Long Island made it 5-0 in their favor in the third on run-scoring singles from Hector Gomez and Aaron Antonini and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Manuel Geraldo. York cut the deficit to 5-1 one half inning later against Long Island starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen thanks to a sacrifice fly by David Washington.

Leading 5-2 in the fifth, the Flock added a run in for a 6-2 advantage on Geraldo’s RBI base knock. With the visitors out in front 6-4 in the sixth, Long Island tacked on a run as Ryan McBroom belted an RBI double for his third hit of the ballgame which gave the contest its final score of 7-4.

Chen (2-1) registered the victory, giving up four runs (three earned) on nine hits in five innings of work, walking two and striking out a season-best six. Lindow (1-1) suffered the loss after allowing six runs (five earned) on 13 hits (one home run) in five innings on the mound, striking out three batters. Matt Seelinger shut the door in the bottom of the ninth retiring all three batters he faced for his second save of the season.

McBroom collected three hits in the winning effort, including two doubles while also driving in a run, crossing the plate twice and drawing a walk.
