Jack Kenley worked a walk to lead off the second and Josue Herrera teed off on a pitch and planted it on the roof of the Revs clubhouse in right field for a two-run homer and a 3-0 lead.  A triple to left-center from JC Encarnacion followed and he scored via Tyler Hill’s sac fly to center to go up 4-0.
Castro led off the home third with a triple off the right-center fence and scored on Kenley’s line drive single to left to make it a 5-0 Revs lead.
Lancaster tightened things up with a run in the fifth followed by three in the sixth.
