Revolution Avoid Ducks SweepJune 10, 2012 - Atlantic League (AtL) Long Island Ducks
York jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the third inning against Ducks starter Gustavo Chacin on a RBI single by James Shanks and a run-scoring fielder's choice off the bat of Ramon Castro. Dan Lyons cut the lead to one with a solo homer, his second of the season, in the fifth off Revolution starter Chris Cody.
A two-run homer by Scott Grimes in the bottom of the fifth pushed the lead to 4-1. Josh Johnson's solo blast, his fourth of the year, in the seventh sliced the deficit to two, but another two-spot for York in the bottom of the frame put the game out of reach.
Cody (3-5) got the win, allowing just two runs on five hits while striking out seven in seven innings. Chacin (0-2) took the loss, yielding six runs on six hits and four walks in six and one-third innings of work.
Lyons paced the Ducks with three hits and two RBI, while Brandon Sing added two hits.
