The York Revolution lost for a third consecutive game on Sunday evening, falling 4-1 to the Long Island Ducks in front of 5,404 fans at Bethpage Ballpark.
The Revs will look to snap the skid and salvage the series finale on Monday morning before opening a seven-game homestand on Tuesday night.
The game got off to a promising start for the Revs. Eric Patterson cranked a solo home run to right field, giving York a 1-0 lead just two batters into the game. It was his 12th home run of the season and league-leading 48th extra-base hit.
Long Island took the lead with three unearned runs in the bottom of the third. Fehlandt Lentini reached on a one-out error before Brendan Harris drew the second of his three walks on the day. With two outs, Bill Hall worked a walk to load the bases, and Adam Bailey came through with a three-run double to right-center.
Bailey added an RBI double to left field in the fifth inning to extend the lead to 4-1. The left fielder drove in all four Long Island runs on the day.
Long Island starter Bobby Blevins (6-3) made the most of the support, going nine innings for the second consecutive start and logging his first complete game of the year, holding the Revs to five hits, and only one hit over the final five innings. The right-hander had not walked a batter in three starts until a pair of walks in the ninth inning brought the tying run to the plate. He holds a 1.71 ERA over his last six starts.
York starter Logan Williamson (3-5) suffered the loss, giving up four runs (one earned) in six innings. He allowed nine hits and five walks. Williamson has allowed three earned runs in 24.0 innings over his last four starts, and allowed fewer than three earned runs for the 10th consecutive start.
The Revs fell back to the .500 mark in the second half at 12-12, and slipped into fourth place in the Atlantic League Freedom Division, despite trailing first-place Sugar Land by just 1.5 games.
