Game 40: Camden 7, York 5

The York Revolution appeared to be close to building off the momentum created by its first series win in nearly a month, but then Camden came to life.

Jason Phillips plated two runs with an RBI double in the fourth and Ron Davenport added an RBI hit to bring Camden within a run. Then the Riversharks moved in front on Davenport’s solo homer and a two-run single by Richard Lewis (not the character from Curb Your Enthusiasm). Camden added another run later on Lewis’ RBI fielder’s choice for a 7-5 win at Campbell’s Field.

York held a 4-0 lead in this game — courtesy of an RBI groundout from Matt Dryer, a throwing error by Camden shortstop Gary Cates and a two-run homer from Matt Esquivel (pictured) — but the lead evaporated where York is most vulnerable — on the road. The Revs are now 3-16 away from Sovereign Bank Stadium.

Dave Gil (0-2) started for York and allowed six earned runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. It appears he’s still trying to find his comfort zone after not pitching professionally for nearly a year. Ryan Drese picked up the win for Camden after going seven innings and allowing five runs (four earned).

Not shockingly, York struggled on offense in this game (four hits) and only left one runner on base. The Revs are 4-25 this season when being outhit, and that number certainly has a lot to do with York’s 14-26 start to the first half.

Player of the Game: Richard Lewis (Camden). Lewis only went 1-for-5 in this game but had three RBIs and his run-scoring hit came when York was on the ropes.

Notes: Alec Zumwalt pitched the ninth for Camden and picked up his 10th save of the year… Gary Cates, Rob Gandolfo and Ron Davenport all had two hits in this game. They were Camden’s 7-8-9 hitters on Friday night… Jason Olson (pictured) and Matt Trent both pitched in relief for York. Trent allowed an unearned run in an inning while Olson was not scored upon in 1 1/3 innings… Chrish Ashby went 0-for-4 in the No. 5 spot a night after having a fabulous 3-for-4 performance in the No. 8 spot… Drese improved to 3-1 on the year for Camden… Camden is now 6-1 against York this year.
