Game 11: Bridgeport 7, York 0

Corey Thurman’s first two starts of the year were farm from horrendous. Despite losing both outings, Thurman really only had one bad inning in each start and battled without his best stuff.

Tuesday night, though, was a disaster. Thurman (0-3) didn’t get out of the second inning in Bridgeport’s 7-0 thrashing of the York Revolution at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Ct.

Much like Monday night, the Bluefish (6-5) used one big inning to do the bulk of their damange. Bridgeport scored six runs in the bottom of the second, an inning that was highlighted by Adam Greenberg’s three-run triple. Jesse Hoorelbeke, Jake Daubert and Luis Lopez added RBI singles in the inning to put the ‘Fish ahead, 6-0.

York only managed three hits in the game and Bridgeport starter Tim Drew shut down the Revs over eight innings. The brother of the Boston Red Sox’s J.D. Drew only allowed two hits and walked one while striking out three.

Nick McCurdy’s appearance for York saved what could have been a disastrous night for the Revs’ bullpen. McCurdy (pictured) came on and pitched 3 2/3 shoutout innings out of the bullpen, striking out seven hitters along the way. Matt Trent gave manager Chris Hoiles a scoreless inning — keeping his ERA at 0.00 over 8 1/3 this year — Dave Veres pitched a scoreless frame and Reid Price pitched around three walks to escape with minimal damage.

Player of the Game: Tim Drew (Bridgeport). The Bluefish starter inherited an early lead and did exactly what he was supposed to do — throw strikes. He also did his best to keep York’s anemic offense in its funk. Three hits in a nine-inning game is simply pathetic, and the offense’s struggles are starting to become a large concern even with only 11 games in the books. Other than two games, the Revs have not hit well this year.

Notes: Wayne Franklin served as WSBA broadcaster Darrell Henry’s color analyst tonight. Franklin did the same thing on a couple of occasions last year… Keoni De Renne, Kenny Perez and Matt Dryer had the three hits for York… Matt Padgett was the only Rev to work a walk… The announced attendance was 573, but according to Henry it was more like 200. Bridgeport is definitely a struggling franchise… Tyler Von Schell had a stolen base after getting on via a hit by pitch… Every Bridgeport starter had at least one hit and the Bluefish had nine men reach base consecutively in the monster second inning… Aaron Rakers (1-1, 7.88 ERA) will try to help the Revs avoid the sweep Wednesday. He’ll face Rafael Bergstrom (0-0, 3.09 ERA).

  1. why doesn’t Pete Munro pitch any game yet ?

  2. Munro has been dealing with some arm soreness since spring training after he was the Uni President Lions’ workhorse in Taiwan last season.

    Hoiles said on Sunday he was hopeful Munro would pitch within the next week, although that will probably be out of the bullpen to start. Munro has thrown off a mound recently.
