HOME RUNS BOOST YORK

Revs Club Four in 10-4 Win over ‘Stormers

The 2023 version of the York Revolution is not particularly known for hitting home runs.

That may have changed on Wednesday evening.

The Revs cracked four long balls, good for eight runs, in a 10-4 rout of the Lancaster Barnstormers in the middle game of a three-game series at WellSpan Park.

Drew Mendoza began the barrage with a two-run shot in the first inning off Brent Teller (2-3), but the Barnstormers briefly took control of the game after that.

Trayvon Robinson opened the second with a double off Nick Raquet (5-3) and moved ahead on two-out walks to Jack Conley and Jake Hoover.  Yeison Coca delivered a two-run single to left to tie the game, and Melvin Mercedes punched a single into right for a 3-2 edge.

That lead would be expanded to 4-2 in the third when Conley blooped a two-out single into right to score designated pinch runner Tyler LaPorte, who had taken over for Wilson Garcia, who had also reached on a single before a walk to Joseph Carpenter.

York tied the game in the bottom of the inning.  Trent Giambrone walked and scored when Tomo Otosaka tripled into the right field corner.  Otosaka, in turn, scored on a sacrifice fly to center by Trey Martin.

A three-run homer by catcher Ryan January to right field in the bottom of the fourth put York ahead to stay.  Richard Urena added a two-run homer to right center in the fifth, and Nellie Rodriguez capped the scoring with a towering blast over the big wall in left in the sixth.

Jared Lakind (3-2) will take the mound for the Barnstormers on Thursday night against right-hander Carlos Espinal (2-1).

NOTES:  Robinson doubled for the fifth straight game…It was his 13th for the season and ties him for fifth all-time in a Barnstormers uniform with 85…Coca has had four multi-hit games in the last five and five multi-RBI games in the last seven…His average has gone from .154 to .266 with a seven-game streak…Lancaster debuted new lefty Zach Warren, who picked up two outs in the eighth after walking his first two batters, and catcher Marshall Rich, who walked in his one plate appearance and replaced Jack Conley behind the plate…Lancaster used the same starting nine for the seventh straight game.
