(York, Pa., August 1, 2017) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the York Revolution 11-2 on Tuesday night in the middle game of a three-game series at PeoplesBank Park.
Both starters locked into a pitcher’s duel until the bottom of the fifth inning when York put up a five-spot against Ducks starter Rafael Perez. A three-run home run to left field by Alonzo Harris and a two-run homer to right by Isaias Tejeda did the damage.
Long Island closed to within 5-2 in the sixth when Dan Lyons launched a two-run homer over the Arch Nemesis in left off Revolution starter Frank Gailey. However, another five-run frame for the Revs in the bottom of the seventh put the game out of reach. RBI singles by Michael Burgess, Luis Cruz and Carlos Triunfel, along with an RBI double by Ryan Dent, highlighted the frame.
Gailey (9-7) picked up the win, pitching five and two-thirds innings of three-run ball, allowing three hits and three walks while striking out three. Perez (6-7) took the loss, surrendering five runs (four earned) on eight hits in five innings with three strikeouts.
