REVS DENIED SWEEP

(June 16, 2022 – Lexington, KY):  The York Revolution built an early lead with a seven-run third inning but saw their three-game winning streak come to an end with a 10-8 loss to the Lexington Legends on Thursday night at Wild Health Field.

Lexington scored the game’s first two runs in the first inning on a Courtney Hawkins sac fly and a wild pitch by Revs starter Austin Nicely for an early 2-0 lead.

Carlos Franco clobbered a solo homer to right in the top of the second, getting the Revs on the board as he took the league lead with his 18th of the season and set a Revs franchise record with his 55th first half RBI.

The Revs exploded for seven runs in the third, storming in front with an 8-2 lead.  Troy Stokes Jr. set the table with a leadoff walk and scored on a double to the gap in right-center by Elmer Reyes.  Franco later added an RBI double to left, his sixth extra-base hit in seven at-bats, and league-leading 56th RBI.  Connor Lien clobbered a three-run homer to right-center, his third home run in the last four games.  Reyes chased Legends starter Bruce Bell with a two-run single to center for his second hit of the inning.

Lexington’s bullpen dominated, however, handling scoreless ball on just two hits over the final 6.1 innings of the game.  Jeff Thompson worked three innings, while Thomas Dorminy (3-3), Jeff Johnson, and Austin Adams (9th save) kept York without a hit over the final three frames.

The Legends built their comeback immediately, answering the Revs’ seven-run third with four runs in their half.  Isaias Tejeda cracked a three-run homer to left-center to launch the effort, and Cesar Cuevas cut the lead to 8-6 with a two-out RBI infield hit.

Nicely rebounded with a scoreless fourth, but Cuevas cut it to 8-7 with a two-out RBI double down the left field line in the bottom of the fifth.

Tejeda chased Nicely with a game-tying sac fly to center on a 3-0 green light in the sixth, tallying his fourth RBI of the night.  Nicely was charged with five earned runs out of his eight runs total.

Lexington took the lead against reliever Jhoendri Herrera (1-1) with a two-out RBI single to right by Boog Powell in the bottom of the seventh, and Hawkins added the insurance with a solo homer to left off Josh Martin in the eighth, retying Franco for the league lead with his 18th home run.

The Revs fall to 5-4 on their current road trip and will open a three-game weekend series at Staten Island on Friday at 7 p.m.  Revs righty Eduardo Rivera starts the opener.  York fans can catch the action live on SportsRadio 98.9 FM & 1350 WOYK, 989woyk.com, The New WOYK app, and the WOYK YouTube channel beginning at 6:40 p.m. with Darrell Henry on the call.

Notes: The Revs were charged with a season-high-tying three errors, their most since May 31; York entered the game with a .976 team fielding percentage, third-best in the league.  Franco now has 11 homers and 30 RBI in his last 16 games.  Lien has hit safely in all nine games on the current road trip, batting .425 (17-for-40).  The Revs have homered in 15 consecutive games, tying a franchise record set in July, 2019; they have totaled 29 home runs in those 15 games and are now one off the league lead with 59 home runs as a team on the season.
