Game 43: York 9, Camden 4

When the York Revolution signed Matt Esquivel to a contract during the off-season, most people assumed the young outfielder would be one of the Atlantic League’s best offensive players.

Well, that hasn’t happened. But Esquivel is starting to show signs of what made him such a highly-regarded signing.

The former Braves’ prospect went 3-for-5 with a solo homer, a double and four RBIs in York’s 9-4 win over Camden Sunday. The performance included a monster homer to left — his third of the year — an RBI double in the fifth and an RBI single in the ninth. The big day at the plate also helped York earn a road series split (2-2) with the Riversharks, which is quite an accomplishment considering York’s road record (5-17).

Aaron Myette was outstanding after picking up his fourth loss in his last start in a rain-shortened affair. Myette carried a no-hitter into the fifth before Ron Davenport and Jason Phillips hit back-to-back doubles to break up the no-no and the shutout. Myette’s final line looked pretty good: 7 IP, 3 ER, 5 H, 6 K, 0 BB.

Matt Dryer also homered in the game for the Revs with a two-run shot to the opposite field in the first inning. Dryer also added three walks to his performance and this game might be the beginning of a hot streak for Dryer. When he hits the ball hard the other way and is selective at the plate, he usually catches fire.

Tyler Von Schell also added an RBI double for York (16-27) and the Revs will enjoy their first off-day Monday since May 12.

Player of the Game: Matt Esquivel (York). The case could easily be made for Myette, but Esquivel’s monster game is impossible to ignore. I’ve heard the argument in the Atlantic League that young players will often struggle because pitchers in the AL (usually veterans) pitch differently. That means fewer first-pitch fastballs and a ton of breaking stuff. So maybe it’s just taken Esquivel a little while to adjust.

Notes: The game temperature at Campbell’s Field was 93 degrees… Emergency catcher Kevin Kotch (pictured) made his first appearance of the season behind the plate. He came in during the ninth behind the dish… York now has 14 homers in its last 11 games… The Revs are 5-2 on Sundays this season. Tuesday is the only other day where York holds a winning record (3-2)… York improved to 5-13 against the Liberty Division and 3-7 against Camden… Camden pitcher Brian Lawrence was signed by the Atlanta Braves organization after pitching eight innings in a loss against Corey Thurman Friday.
