(Central Islip, N.Y., May 5, 2019) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the York Revolution 9-0 in the rain-shortened finale of a three-game series on Sunday evening at Bethpage Ballpark.

It stayed that way until the fifth inning when a two-out, two-run double by Castillo extended the lead to six. Three more runs in the sixth for York rounded out the scoring before the skies opened in the top of the seventh.
Troy Terzi (1-0) earned the win, tossing five scoreless innings, allowing two hits and four walks while striking out eight. Fisher (1-1) took the loss, giving up four runs on eight hits and a walk in one and one-third innings.
