(Central Islip, N.Y., June 12, 2024) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the York Revolution 10-6 on Wednesday night in the middle game of a three-game series at Fairfield Properties Ballpark.

York grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning on David Washington’s RBI single to right field. Long Island answered with three runs in the bottom of the frame off Revolution starter Ethan Lindow on back-to-back solo home runs by Ivan Castillo and Ryan McBroom plus a sac fly off the bat of Tyler Dearden.

The Revolution countered with a three-run inning of their own in the third off Ducks starter Mike Montgomery to take a 4-3 lead. Donovan Casey’s RBI double and Trey Martin’s two-run double did the damage. It stayed that way until the sixth when the Ducks leapfrogged back in front 6-4 on Dearden’s two-run double to right and Manuel Geraldo’s single to center.

A five-run seventh inning allowed York to re-take the lead in the seventh at 9-6. Colton Welker’s RBI single and Alfredo Reyes’ three-run triple highlighted the inning. Casey added an RBI double in the eighth to round out the scoring.
