(Central Islip, N.Y., June 11, 2024) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the York Revolution 6-5 in 11 innings on Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game series at Fairfield Properties Ballpark.

Donovan Casey’s solo home run to center field off Ducks starter Daniel Corcino in the first inning gave York an early 1-0 lead. Kobe Kato’s solo homer to right and Casey’s sac fly to left-center in the third made it 3-0 Revolution. However, Tyler Dearden launched a three-run home run to right field off Revolution starter Michael Horrell in the bottom of the frame to tie the game at three.

Matt McDermott put York back on top with a solo homer to left in the fifth, but Ryan McBroom’s RBI single to left in the bottom of the inning evened the score at four.
