(York, Pa., Sept. 1, 2018) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the York Revolution 3-2 on Saturday night in the middle game of a three-game series at PeoplesBank Park.
The Ducks took a 2-0 lead in the third inning when Jordany Valdespin scored on a balk by Revolution starter Troy Terzi and Taylor Ard followed later with an RBI double. Ryan Dent brought the Revs to within one in the bottom of the inning with a solo homer to left field off Ducks starter Jake Fisher.
It stayed that way until the bottom of the sixth when the Revolution scored a pair of two-out runs to take a 3-2 lead. Melky Mesa’s RBI single and Isaias Tejeda’s RBI double did the damage. Long Island put the tying run on base in each of the final three innings of the game but could not pull even.

Michael Click (1-0) collected the win after tossing one and one-third scoreless innings of relief, striking out one.
