The York Revolution had no answer for the Long Island Ducks' hot start on Tuesday night, dropping an 8-2 Atlantic League result at PeoplesBank Park for the team's second consecutive loss in the series.
Long Island (6-6) did most of its damage within the first four innings, putting York (5-6) in a hole early, one the team could never get out of.
After the Ducks plated two runs in each of the first two frames to grab an early 4-0 lead, the Revs scored their only runs of the night in the bottom half of the second inning. Luis Alen got York on the scoreboard by scoring on a wild pitch and then, two batters later, Derrick Robinson provided the only RBI of the night for the Revs, singling home Bryan Pounds to pull the home team to within two runs of Long Island.
However, the bats went silent and stayed silent the rest of the game for York. The Ducks responded with solo runs in the top of the third and fourth innings to regain their four-run advantage. For good measure, Long Island added two more runs in the sixth to put the final nail in the coffin.
The Revs were held to just six hits, four of which came from Jose Constanza and Robinson, who each had two-hit nights.
Frank Gailey had a rare off night on the mound for York, getting tagged for six runs, four earned, on nine hits, a walk and five strikeouts in four innings of work. The bullpen had a strong showing, with Joe Van Meter, Jarret Martin, Luke Westphal, Chase Huchingson and Hawtin Buchanan pitching five innings in relief of Gailey, allowing two unearned runs, both when Martin was in the game.
The two teams will conclude the four-game series on Wednesday with a day-night doubleheader. The first game is set for 11 a.m., while the second game will begin at 6:30 p.m.
