(York, Pa., Aug. 21, 2022) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the York Revolution 16-9 on Sunday afternoon in the final game of a three-game series at PeoplesBank Park.

The Ducks opened the scoring in the second inning on Joe DeCarlo’s RBI single to center field off Revolution starter Austin Nicely. York took a 3-1 lead against Ducks starter Scott Harkin in the bottom of the inning on RBI singles by Connor Lien and Josue Herrera and a sac fly off the bat of Lenin Rodriguez.

However, Long Island responded with a seven-run third inning to go back in front 8-3. Deibinson Romero’s three-run home run and Anfernee Seymour’s grand slam, both over the Arch Nemesis in left, did the damage. Melky Mesa’s RBI double to left-center in the bottom of the third closed the gap to 8-4.

It stayed that way until the sixth when an eight-run inning gave the Ducks a 16-4 lead. RBI singles by Phil Caulfield, Romero and DeCarlo, along with a grand slam by Vladimir Frias, highlighted the inning. The Revs closed to within 16-9 in the bottom of the sixth, highlighted by Herrera’s grand slam, but they could get no closer.

Harkin (9-7) picked up the win, tossing five innings, allowing four runs (two earned) on seven hits while striking out five. Nicely (3-11) took the loss, conceding 10 runs (six earned) on eight hits and three walks over five innings with two strikeouts.

DeCarlo led the Flock offensively with four hits, two RBIs and two runs scored. Romero, Frias and Seymour each added two hits and four RBIs as well.
