Game 14: York 11, Somerset 5

The York Revolution found a two-fold solution to its troubles on the road.

Play fewer innings. And score a heck of a lot of runs.

The Revs jumped out to an impressive nine-run lead early in the first game of its doubleheader with Somerset Saturday and cruised to an 11-5 victory at Commerce Bank Park — a win that snapped a seven-game losing streak on the road. York, 6-8, only had to hold it together for seven innings after Friday’s game was washed out.

Keoni De Renne (pictured) — making the move to second base in this one — singled to lead off the game and came around on Travis Ezi’s double. Then Tyler Von Schell added a sacrifice fly later in the frame to give the Revs’ a two-run advantage. York added to its lead later when Patriots’ starter D.J. Mattox walked the bases loaded twice — once with Ezi up and once with Matt Padgett at the plate. Kenny Perez also added an RBI single, Luis Taveras launched his first homer of the year — a three-run shot — and De Renne made it back-to-back bombs with Taveras, hitting a solo homer of his own.

Wayne Franklin (pictured) improved to 3-0 after working through a third inning in which he allowed five runs. Both teams combined to score 10 runs in the third. Franklin’s final line wasn’t great (5 IP, 5 ER, 4K, 7H), but he set down seven in a row on two separate occasions to stay perfect on the year.

Nick McCurdy pitched a perfect sixth and Dave Veres worked around two walks in the seventh to close it.

York can regain sole possession of first place in the Freedom Division with a win over Somerset, 7-8, in the nightcap. Brian Adams, the reigning Atlantic League Pitcher of the Year, will make the start for Somerset against Aaron Myette.

  1. Kenny Perez played shortstop with DeRenne moving to second, correct?

    Some fairly unexpected power tonight from DeRenne and Taveras. That’s what this offense needed.

  2. Correct. I think this will be a good move for the long term. I felt before the season started that De Renne was more suited for second, and Perez has a much better arm.

    Matt Dryer also played the field. He played first base in the second game and went 1-for-3.
