(York, Pa., May 9, 2023) – The Long Island Ducks defeated the York Revolution 9-4 on Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game series at WellSpan Park.
Drew Mendoza’s two-run single to center field off Ducks starter Joe Iorio in the first inning gave York an early 2-0 lead. An eight-run second inning put the Ducks in front 8-2. Two-run home runs by Adeiny Hechavarria and Sam Travis, a solo homer by Joe DeCarlo, a sac fly off the bat of Philip Caulfield and an RBI double by Lew Ford did the damage.
A two-run homer to left by Troy Stokes Jr. in the sixth closed the gap to 8-4. However, York would get no closer, and an RBI double by DeCarlo in the ninth rounded out the scoring.
Iorio (1-1) earned the win, tossing five innings of two-run ball, allowing five hits and three walks with one strikeout. Revs starter Denson Hull (0-1) suffered the loss, surrendering seven runs on six hits and two walks in one and one-third innings.
Hechavarria led the Flock offensively with three hits, two RBIs, a run and a walk. Travis added two hits, two RBIs, three runs and a walk, while DeCarlo chipped in with two hits, two RBIs and a run.
