(June 5, 2022 – York, Pa.): In yet another game with plenty of offensive firepower, the York Revolution fell short of their effort to sweep the Kentucky Wild Health Genomes on Sunday, falling by a score of 8-6 in front of 3,368 fans at PeoplesBank Park.
The Genomes struck first for the second game in a row. After leadoff man Luke Becker was walked and stole second to start the game, he was driven in on a Moises Sierra one-out single for the game’s first run.  Sierra scored two batters later on a double by Felix Pie in a two-run first.  They got one more in the top of the second when Anderson Miller hit his first homer of the year over the wall in right center field to expand the lead to 3-0.
Troy Stokes Jr got York on the board in the bottom of the second on an infield single, providing his 23rd run driven in on the season.
The third inning saw the Genomes continue to expand their lead with a sac fly by Samir Duenez and an RBI double by Chase Vallot suddenly making it 5-1. 
With Melky Mesa on second following an error to start the bottom of the third inning, potential disaster struck for the Revs when Nellie Rodriguez was hit on the hand by a fastball and forced to leave the game. It was later announced that x-rays on the hand were negative. Josue Herrera provided a bit of payback two batters later, launching a no-doubt three-run home run to the right field tents, cutting the deficit to 5-4. 
The day was done for York starter Merandy Gonzalez after issuing a leadoff walk in the fourth.  Gonzalez was relieved by Jhoendri Herrera who rolled a double play ball to his first batter faced and force a flyout to centerfield to end the inning.
Herrera stayed on for the fifth inning but allowed a long home run ball to Chris Shaw that landed on top of the right field clubhouse. Shaw’s third of the season made it a 6-4 game.
York did not wait long for an answer. Carlos Franco, who replaced the injured Rodriguez on what was intended to be an off day, took a fastball from Genomes starter Elih Villanueva to the deepest part of the ballpark for a home run to center field. It was Franco’s 13th of the year and brought York again within a run at 6-5.
After a 1-2-3 sixth, Alberto Rodriguez went out for his second inning of work. Following a leadoff single by Jimmy Paredes, he was ejected along with manager Mark Mason following a hit by pitch to Sierra, as warnings had been issued when Rodriguez was hit in the third.  Paredes later scored on an RBI ground out by Pie off of reliever Isaac Sanchez to make it 7-5.
Nick Howard made his Revs debut in the eighth, starting things off with a strike out. After a single and a pair of walks, another insurance run scored on a softly hit fielder’s choice grounder off the bat of Paredes. 
The Genomes brought in closer Diego Moreno with an 8-5 lead in the ninth. After a ground out, Moreno allowed three straight hits as the Revs threatened to complete the comeback. Elmer Reyes poked a two-strike single to right field and moved to third on Mesa’s second double of the day. It was Mesa’s 83rd career double with the Revs, as he tied and passed Ramon Castro for third on the Revs’ all-time list.  Franco followed with his third hit of the day, a single that scored Reyes and moved Mesa to third as the Revs pulled within two. Moreno bounced back strongly, however, striking out the next two he faced to close down his fourth save, ending the Genomes’ 8-6 victory.
York will spend the next two weeks away from PeoplesBank Park, beginning their trip on Tuesday at Long Island for their first series with the Ducks since Opening Weekend. Jorge Martinez will start things off on the mound against Anderson DeLeon with first pitch at 6:35 p.m.  Revs fans can catch the action live on SportsRadio 98.9 FM & 1350 WOYK,, The New WOYK app, and the WOYK YouTube channel beginning at 6:15 p.m. with Darrell Henry on the call.
Notes: The Revs are denied of a sweep but are now 4-2-1 in their last seven series and 12-10 in those 22 games following a 4-14 start.
