The Revolution jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning on RBI singles by Chad Tracy and Ofilio Castro off Ducks starter Casey Barnes. The Ducks answered back with a run in the bottom of the first on a run-scoring infield single off the bat of Lew Ford.

Two more runs in the third for York increased their advantage to three, but Long Island responded with four runs in the bottom of the frame against Revs starter Chris Cody to take a 5-4 lead. Fehlandt Lentini scored on a passed ball, and Adam Bailey launched a three-run home run to right field.

The Revolution knotted the game at five in the fifth when Johan Limonta scored on a throwing error by Jon Myers. However, Ford’s RBI double and Ryan Strieby’s two-run homer to right-center put the Ducks back in front 8-5. A two-run single by Salvador Paniagua in the seventh closed the gap to one, but York could not pull even.

Barnes did not factor into the decision but tossed three innings, allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out five. Fernando Hernandez (1-0) earned the win after tossing two innings, allowing one unearned run on one hit while striking out three. Cody (0-1) took the loss, surrendering seven runs on seven hits in four and one-third innings. Leo Rosales earned his fourth save with a scoreless ninth.

Ford led the Flock with three hits while Lentini and Myers added two apiece.

Following a day off on Monday, the Ducks will continue their homestand on Tuesday night when they host the Lancaster Barnstormers in the opener of a three-game series. Game time is slated for 6:35 p.m. with the Bethpage Ballpark gates opening at 5:35.
