Game 62: York 8, Long Island 7

The fans who braved about an hour-long rain delay in the eighth inning of Saturday night’s game were definitely rewarded for sticking it out.

Sandy Aracena singled in pinch runner Kaz Tanaka in the bottom of the ninth inning at Sovereign Bank Stadium, giving York a thrilling 8-7 win in front of a small portion of the 5,309 fans that were in attendance at first pitch. The come-from-behind win was York’s second ninth-inning win in less than a week. The Revs also rallied in the ninth to beat Bridgeport 8-5 Thursday. Before that contest in Bridgeport, York was 0-28 when trailing after eight innings.

York faced a 7-2 deficit in this game but battled back by scoring three in the seventh, two in the eighth and of course, the game-winner in the ninth. But the thrilling theater would not have been possible if not for reliever Dan Foli. Foli came in after the rain delay in the eighth and got out of a bases loaded, no out situation to put the Revs in position for the win. Foli (2-2) was credited with his second win of the year in relief.

The Revs (26-36) battered Long Island’s bullpen, which struggled after starter Clint Nageotte went five innings and only allowed two earned runs. Joe Valentine surrendered the game-winning hit to Aracena in the ninth.

Player of the Game: Dan Foli (York). The obvious choice here is Aracena, but Foli came through with an effort you don’t see very often in escaping from the bases loaded jam. Foli has emerged as the reliever Chris Hoiles goes to in absolutely horrendous situations and more times than not he’s responded.

Notes: Aaron Rakers was shelled in the start. He allowed seven earned runs over five innings and his ERA rose to 5.51. … Sam Rosario and Matt Padgett both had two hits for the Revs. … Carl Everett launched his 11th home run of the year. … York is now 5-0 against Long Island at Sovereign Bank Stadium and 7-2 overall against the Ducks. … Mark Rosen created the bases loaded jam for Foli. He walked two and allowed a hit before the game went into the rain delay. … Chris Ashby had a rare off-night, going 0-for-4. … The win gave the Revs their second three-game winning streak in a week. York will go for a franchise-best four-game winning streak Sunday.
