Game 84: York 7, Somerset 5

The York Revolution desperately needed a solid start out of its starting rotation and Dave Gil delivered exactly what the Revs needed Friday night.

The University of Miami product pitched seven innings and allowed three earned runs (four total) in York’s 7-5 win at Sovereign Bank Stadium. Gil struck out seven and allowed manager Chris Hoiles to finish out the game with Travis Phelps (a scoreless eighth) and Nick McCurdy (one run in the ninth).

York’s offense was led by Luis Taveras, who launched his seventh homer, and Shea Hillenbrand. Hillenbrand delivered a 3-for-4 game with two RBIs to up his hitting streak to 17 games. Keoni De Renne also had two hits and scored two runs out of the No. 2 hole.

Jason Aspito also added a two-run double for the Revs and every starter except for Kennard Jones and Matt Dryer had a hit. Somerset’s Sean Smith and Brandon Larson added homers in the defeat.

York (7-7) will return to the diamond Saturday night attempting to take the lead in the four-game series with the Patriots. Wayne Franklin will take the mound against Somerset’s Aaron Fultz.
