After York dropped the first two games of the four-game series on Monday and Tuesday, Long Island completed the sweep on Wednesday by taking both games of a day-night doubleheader at PeoplesBank Park, winning the first game, 7-2, and the second game, 8-5.

In the second game, the Revs (5-8) saw the Ducks (8-6) score all eight of their runs in the first four innings. Former Baltimore Oriole Nolan Reimold belted his first home run in the Atlantic League for Long Island in the first inning, a two-run shot off York's Steve Janas.

The Revs finally got on the board with solo runs in the fourth and fifth to pull to within 8-2. They gave the home fans a glimmer of hope with a three-run bottom of the eighth to get to within three. However, York went quietly in the bottom the ninth.

In the opener, the two teams traded runs over the first two innings to make it 2-2 heading into the third, but it was all Ducks after that.

York's Jared Mitchell had a solo homer in the second.

After the Revs opened their first 2017 homestand with a three-game weekend sweep of Somerset, it quickly went sour vs. the Ducks. Over the course of the four losses, York was outscored, 31-16.

The Revs have an off day Thursday before beginning a three-game series at Somerset Friday.
