Game 77: York 9, Long Island 6

The York Revolution sure didn’t come out sluggish after its four-day All-Star break.

Instead, the Revs tied a season high in hits (20) on the way to taking a 9-6 win in the first game of a three-game set with Long Island at Citibank Park in Central Islip, N.Y.

Every hitter in the Revolution lineup had at least one knock and five of the nine starters had three hits apiece in the game. Jason Aspito and Matt Padgett (pictured) were the top performers. Both had three hits each and had a home run in the contest. Aspito’s shot was his team-leading 11th of the year and Padgett’s long ball was his fourth.

Corey Thurman started for York and worked out of some early trouble to even his season record at .500 (6-6). Thurman allowed three runs on four hits in the first but allowed only one hit the rest of the way — Ray Navarette’s solo homer in the fifth inning. Thurman finished with seven innings pitched and struck out three while only allowing four runs and and five hits.

York (3-4) continued its dominance over the red-hot Ducks (4-3). The Revs are 9-2 against Long Island this year and that record includes two separate three-game sweeps at Sovereign Bank Stadium. The Revolution also improved to 4-8 on Fridays. Its 3-8 record coming into the game on Fridays is now slightly ahead of York’s record on Thursdays (3-8).

The Revs will send Aaron Myette (5-6, 5.27 ERA) to the mound Saturday against the Ducks’ Clint Nageotte (1-3, 4.58 ERA).
