(Central Islip, N.Y., Aug. 30, 2017) – The Long Island Ducks split a single admission doubleheader with the York Revolution on Wednesday night at Bethpage Ballpark, taking game one 5-4 in waddle-off fashion before dropping game two 8-2.

Long Island jumped out to a 3-0 lead over the first two innings of game one against Revolution starter Logan Williamson. RBI doubles by Lew Ford and Marc Krauss in the first and an error that plated Dan Lyons in the second highlighted the scoring.

York closed to within 3-2 in the third on back-to-back two-out solo home runs by Alonzo Harris and Alexi Casilla off Ducks starter Jake Dunning. However, the Ducks got one of the runs back in the bottom of the frame on an RBI single to left by Jordan Hinshaw.

The Revolution pulled even at four with single runs in the fifth and sixth on a wild pitch that scored Chase Simpson and a solo homer to left by Telvin Nash. York put then put the go-ahead runs at first and second with no outs in the sixth, but Rob Rogers escaped the jam. Elmer Reyes followed in the bottom of the seventh with a one-out solo blast over the left field wall to give the Ducks the waddle-off victory.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Dunning pitched five innings, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out nine. Williamson lasted two and two-thirds innings, yielding four runs (three earned) on eight hits and three walks with one strikeout. Amalio Diaz (5-4) collected the win after pitching a scoreless seventh inning, striking out two. Ricardo Gomez (3-4) took the loss after surrendering the game-winning homer.

Hinshaw led the Flock with three hits, while Ford and Reyes each added two.

A four-run second inning put the Revolution on top early in game two. Two-out, two-run home runs by Travis Witherspoon and Casilla off Ducks starter Dennis O’Grady did the damage. The Ducks closed to within 4-2 in the third on an RBI single to left by Delta Cleary Jr. and an RBI double to right-center by Ford off Revolution starter Jay Gause.

York would put the game out of reach with a run in the fourth, two in the sixth and another in the seventh. An RBI double by Witherspoon, a two-run homer to center by Casilla and a solo homer to right by Nash accounted for the scoring.

Gause (9-2) earned the win, tossing six innings of two-run ball, allowing three hits and three walks while striking out five. O’Grady (5-7) took the loss, giving up four runs on five two walks with one strikeout in two innings.
