A third-straight home loss to the Long Island Ducks dropped the York Revolution eight games back of first-place Lancaster in the Atlantic League Freedom Division first-half race.

York fell to 19-18 with a 2-0 loss to the Ducks at PeoplesBank Park on a dreary Sunday afternoon in front of an announced crowd of 2,871 fans. The game started late because of a rain delay.

The Barnstormers, meanwhile, stand at 28-11 after getting rained out at home Sunday vs. the Road Warriors.

Travis Witherspoon had three hits for York, while Welington Dotel added two, but the Revs couldn't dent the plate despite getting eight hits — the same number as the Ducks. 

Revs starter Pat McCoy (0-1) delivered a quality start, going six innings and allowing two earned runs, but still took the loss. The Revs' bullpen didn't allow a run.

A two-run, first-inning homer by Long Island's Taylor Ard accounted for all of the game's runs.
