Game 28: Camden 2, York 1

Despite the York Revolution staff’s best efforts Saturday night, the losing continued for the Revs at Sovereign Bank Stadium.

The employees for the Freedom Division cellar dwellers decided to pull tarp and require rally caps for Saturday’s game in an effort to recreate the scene from York’s thrilling 5-4 walk-off victory from a week ago. But it didn’t matter. Camden’s Darren Sack only allowed one run in 6 2/3 innings and the Revolution’s anemic offense couldn’t get much going in a 2-1 loss.

The Riversharks scored a run in the third and the fourth off York starter Aaron Rakers and it was plenty of offense. The Revs only managed three hits as the club dropped to 9 1/2 games behind division leader Newark.

Rakers (pictued) allowed just two runs (one earned) in seven innings and other than a couple rough spots his move to the starting rotation has been a success. Nick McCurdy came on in relief and didn’t allow a hit in two scoreless innings.

Sandy Aracena’s solo homer accounted for the only scoring for York and you have to wonder what the club can do to turn around this swoon. The Revs have lost 16 of 19 overall and I think we’ve seen enough of a sample size to know that the team as presently constructed is flawed. Changes need to be made. It’s that simple.

York (8-20) will try to avoid a sweep at home Sunday with Wayne Franklin (3-1) on the hill.

  1. This team keeps finding new and interesting ways to lose. Jeff, would you agree or disagree with a manager change at the halfway point? Change has to start at the top. As so far as York having Philly influence, our manager, pitching coach and giant statue outside of the stadium are all Baltimore Orioles. Might want to go 20 miles east on Route 30 if you want to see Philly influence.
