Long Island grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on an Adam Bailey sacrifice fly off York starter Logan Williamson. The Revs tied the game at one in the top of the second on a solo home run from Travis Garcia off Ducks starter Bobby Blevins.

York took the lead in the the fifth on a run-scoring wild pitch with the bases loaded. However, the Ducks responded in the bottom of the sixth with a two-run single from Joash Brodin to take the lead back at 3-2. Adam Bailey increased the advantage to two with a RBI single in the bottom of the seventh.

The Revolution tied the game in the top of the eighth on a pair of sacrifice flies from Chad Tracy and Salvador Paniagua. Another sacrifice fly in the ninth from Garcia put York in front for good.

Williamson yielded one unearned run on eight hits and one walk with one strikeout over five innings of work. Stephen Penney (3-1) earned the win after tossing a scoreless inning of relief.
