GAME AUDIO: Ray Navarrete's pair of homers and Willis Otanez's walk-off double

POSTGAME VIDEO: Kevin Baez, Ray Navarrete and Willis Otanez talk another dramatic victory

York opened the scoring with three runs in the fourth inning off Ducks starter Bill Murphy. Salvador Paniagua hit a two-run double to center field, and Matt Spencer drove in a run with a double to left. Ray Navarrete tied the game with a three-run homer in the bottom half of the frame off Revolution starter Corey Thurman.

Navarrete struck again for a two-run home run to left to put the Ducks in front in the sixth. York scratched a run across in the seventh on a Kody Kirkland RBI double, and Ruddy Yan tripled to center in the eighth inning to drive in two and put York in front. Long Island rallied back in the ninth though to win the game. After singles by Bill Hall and Josh Barfield, Willis Otanez smacked a two-run double off the left field wall to win the game.

Neither starter factored in the decision. Murphy threw seven innings of four-run, nine-hit ball, striking out three, and Thurman allowed five runs on eight hits in six innings. Daniel Herrera (2-1) picked up the win, recording the final out in the ninth inning. Juan Rincon (1-8) took the loss, allowing two runs on three hits in one-third of an inning.

Ramon Castro led the Ducks with three hits while Navarrete, Otanez and Barfield each had two.

Duck Tales: Ray Navarrete hit two home runs in a game for the first time this season. His last two-homer game came on August 24, 2012 in Lancaster. The two longballs increased the Ducks' season total to 99, and it was Navarrete's second and third homer of the month against York. The eighth-year Duck also drove in five runs for the first time since June 28, 2012 against Sugar Land. It was his seventh multi-RBI game in 2013…Ramon Castro notched his fourth three-hit game and his 20th multi-hit game overall. This was his second consecutive multi-hit game as well…Josh Barfield racked up two hits for the 15th time this season, and it was his 22nd multi-hit game on the year…Willis Otanez drove in two runs for the first time this season, earning his first RBI as a Duck since September 19, 2010 at Lancaster…The seven inning outing by Bill Murphy was his longest of the season. His previous high was six innings, which he had recorded six times…With one and one-third scoreless innings, Josh Lansford now has seven consecutive scoreless appearances. He has also allowed an earned run in only one of his last 13 games and has given up runs in just two of his last 18 games. In those 18 appearances, he has lowered his season ERA from 6.32 to 3.13…The walk-off win was the eighth of the year and marked back-to-back walk-off wins for the Ducks. This was the second set of back-to-back walk-offs in 2013 with the first coming July 19 and 20 against Camden. It also marked Long Island's third waddle-off win of the month against York…The crowd of 6,216 was the Ducks’ 10th past-capacity crowd of the season at Bethpage Ballpark.
