REVS STEAM CRABS

 
(June 1, 2022 – York, Pa.):  The York Revolution evened their series with the division leading Southern Maryland Blue Crabs on Wednesday evening, backed by four solo home runs in a 6-4 victory at PeoplesBank Park. 
 
The Revs got the bats rolling early. Just two pitches into the bottom of the first, Troy Stokes Jr drove a leadoff homer onto the Appell Lawn in right center, his sixth of the year, and second to lead off a game. 
 
The power display continued to lead off the second. This time it was Carlos Franco, blasting a full count pitch over the batter's eye in center field to make it 2-0. For Franco, it was his third home run in as many plate appearances making him the first in Revs history to accomplish the feat. It was also the 38th long ball of his Revs career, propelling him into the franchise’s career top ten.  Meanwhile for opposing lefty Denson Hull, it was just the second hit all season he had surrendered to a left handed hitter.
 
Stokes added one more run in the second inning on a sac fly to left field that scored Conor Lien who had previously walked as the Revs built a 3-0 lead.
 
The Blue Crabs got to York starter Eduardo Rivera in the third inning, plating four runs to take the lead. After two leadoff walks, Zach Collier followed with an RBI single to right to put the Blue Crabs on the board. Two batters later, Alex Crosby got a pitch to drive and lifted a long fly ball just inside the right field foul pole. It was Crosby’s second home run on the year, as the three-run shot put the Crabs ahead 4-3.
 
Lien would produce a run of his own in the third inning on an RBI double down the left field line scoring Franco who had reached on a two-out single, tying the game at 4-4.
 
Rivera was able to bounce back after the tough third inning, throwing perfect fourth and fifth innings.  In the sixth, Rivera allowed a leadoff single to Braxton Lee who followed by stealing second base, but the Revs righty answered back, retiring the next three including his seventh strikeout of the night as he set down 10 of his final 11.
 
That closed the book for Rivera (3-1) who threw 108 pitches on the night. He allowed five hits, walking four and striking out seven. The seven strikeouts tied a season-high, matching his first start in Lancaster on May 14th.
 
York took the lead back and chased Hull in the process in the bottom of the sixth. With one out, Yefri Perez, making his first start at second base on the year, drove a fastball from Hull over the fence in left-center field to put the Revs on top 5-4. It was Perez’ first of the year and just the 13th of his career. 
 
Robinson Parra provided the shutdown inning with a clean seventh inning that included a strikeout.
 
Josh Martin got the ball in the eighth. After allowing two hits to put the first two runners in scoring position, Martin answered with a strikeout of Lee. After loading the bases on a walk, Martin rolled a picture-perfect ground ball to short to produce an inning-ending double play.
 
Lenin Rodriguez deposited a no-doubt home run to left-center to lead off the bottom of the eighth inning. His second of the season put York ahead 6-4, providing insurance for closer Jim Fuller.
 
Celebrating his 35th birthday, Fuller got Michael Baca to chop to short and froze Matt Hibbert on a fastball to retire the first two quickly. Despite a tricky humpback liner on an in-between hop to Perez at second base, Fuller notched the ground out to end the game, earning his seventh save of the year and 36th of his Revs career, trailing only Mike DeMark by three for the franchise crown.
 
York will look to win the series in the rubber match on Thursday, sending righty Jorge Martinez to the mound against lefty Mitch Lambson. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. on Throwback Thursday to the Roman Era.  Tickets are on sale at YorkRevolution.com, (717) 801-HITS, and in-person at the Shipley Energy Ticket Office.
