REVS SLIP PAST DUCKS IN TWINBILL OPENER

Four-run fifth inning overcomes Long Island

(Central Islip, N.Y., May 3, 2014) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the York Revolution 8-7 on Saturday afternoon in game one of a day/night doubleheader at Bethpage Ballpark.

GAME AUDIO: Highlights from game one of the doubleheader

The Revolution struck first in the opening inning against Ducks starter Shaun Garceau on a RBI double by Eric Patterson and a RBI triple off the bat of Steve Bumbry. The Ducks answered right back in the bottom of the first on a two-out, two-run double to left-center by Adam Bailey off Revs starter Jorge Martinez.

Three more runs in the second for Long Island on a RBI single by Dan Lyons and a two-run double from Fehlandt Lentini put the Flock in front 5-2. York pulled to within one in the third before taking an 8-5 lead with a four-run fifth. A RBI triple by Patterson and a run-scoring single by Alberto Espinosa highlighted the damage.

Long Island rallied back in the ninth to pull within one on Keith Castillo’s two-run homer to left. However, the Ducks could not pull even.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Garceau tossed four innings, allowing four runs on six hits while striking out five. Martinez lasted three innings, surrendering five runs (three earned) on five hits in three innings. Mike McClendon (1-1) earned the win with four scoreless inning of relief, striking out three. Steve Garrison (0-1) suffered the loss, yielding four runs (none earned) on two hits and a walk in one-third of an inning. Rommie Lewis earned his second save despite allowing two runs in the ninth.

Lentini, Castillo and Cody Puckett each led the Flock with two hits while Lentini, Bailey and Castillo contributed two RBI apiece.
