Game 78: York 12, Long Island 7

A night after tying a franchise record for hits, the York Revolution kept the bats going in another impressive outing against Long Island.

The Revs took a 12-7 win at Citibank Park and every hitter in the Revolution lineup had at least one hit for the second straight night. York has also had at least one baserunner reach in 17 of the 18 innings in its series with Long Island and has scored 31 runs over its last three games.

It all got started in the first with a monster, five-run inning. Matt Padgett and Shea Hillenbrand both drew bases-loaded walks and then All-Star Sandy Aracena (pictured) cleared the bases with a three-run double. The Revs (4-4) added another in the fourth on Chris Ashby’s sac fly and Matt Esquivel’s two-run single extended York’s lead to 8-1.

Jason Aspito also continued his success against Long Island. He homered for the second time in as many nights and it was his fifth homer against the Ducks this year. Aspito also has eight homers in 11 career games at Citibank Park.

Hillenbrand extended his hitting streak to 11 games and has at least one hit in 11 of his 12 games in a Revolution uniform. Esquivel added three RBIs on the night and leads the club with 48.

Aaron Myette (seven innings, four earned runs) was denied the quality start but picked up the win thanks to York’s offensive explosion. Myette has quality starts in six of his last eight outings.

York will try again for its first ever road sweep Sunday. The Revs came up short in their quest for a road sweep last week at Camden. York’s Sunday starter has yet to be announced.
