Revs Salvage Finale Against 'Fish

Myers Extends On-Base Streak

 

(York, PA– July 16, 2017) – The York Revolution (5-5, 33-47) defeated the Bridgeport Bluefish (6-4, 47-33) 6-3 at PEOPLEsBank Park on Sunday afternoon to salvage the finale of a three-game weekend series in the White Rose City. Bridgeport concludes a stretch of 17 consecutive games played against York and the New Britain Bees with an overall record of 12-5.

Bridgeport starting pitcher Jorge Perez tallied a no-decision tossing a scoreless inning, walking and striking out one. The right-hander began his warm-up tosses in the bottom half of the second inning but was immediately removed from the ballgame due to an undisclosed injury. York starting pitcher Frank Gailey (7-6) earned the win, allowing three runs on six hits over five innings of work, walking one and striking out five. Brad Allen closed the game out in the top of the ninth for his team-leading 12th save on the campaign.

Bridgeport took a 1-0 lead versus Gailey in the top of the second inning on a two-out run scoring base knock off the bat of Gustavo Molina, plating Andrew Lambo with the game’s first run after he singled to begin the frame. York went ahead 4-1 in the home half of the third against losing pitcher Frank DeJiulio, Jr. (2-4) on a game-tying RBI single from Isaias Tejeda and a go-ahead three run home run to right by Jared Mitchell. DeJiulio, Jr. surrendered five runs on six hits (two home runs) in two and one-third innings on the mound, walking one and striking out three. The ‘Fish got to within 4-3 in the top of the fourth on back-to-back RBI base hits from Tony Abreu and Molina. The Revolution added a pair of insurance runs in the fourth and eighth innings on a solo home run over the Arch Nemesis in left from Alonzo Harris and a sacrifice produced by Angel Franco. York needed 12 outs from their bullpen to walk away with a victory, and that is exactly what they received as Joe Van Meter, Curtis Partch, Ricardo Gomez, and Allen did not allow a run over the course of four innings on just two hits allowed, striking out three. In his final turn at bat in the top half of the ninth inning, 2017 Liberty Division All-Star D’Arby Myers drew a two-out walk against Allen, extending his on-base streak to a team-high 21 consecutive games. Lambo and Molina led the way for the Bluefish with a pair of hits each. Photo provided courtesy of Joe Doll.
