Romero's Blast Not Enough to Top Revolution
(York, Pa.) - The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the York Revolution 3-2 on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series at PeoplesBank Park.
Neither side cracked the scoreboard until the top of the fifth inning. A two-run home run to left field by Deibinson Romero off Revolution starter Duke von Schamann gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead.
York responded with three runs in the bottom of the fifth off Ducks starter Anderson DeLeon to go in front 3-2. An RBI double by Alvaro Rondon, a sacrifice fly to center off the bat of Justin Trapp and an RBI infield single by Welington Dotel did the damage.

DeLeon (1-2) took the loss, giving up three runs on five hits over five innings with four strikeouts.
