Game 105: Somerset 7, York 2

The York Revolution had two incredible streaks going lately.

Too bad both had to come to an end on the same night.

Somerset scored four runs in the first inning and never looked back in a 7-2 victory Saturday night before 7,889 fans at Commerce Bank Ballpark. The Patriots halted York’s franchise-record eight-game winning streak and Chris Ashby’s Atlantic League-record hitting streak also came to an end. Ashby, whot hit in 30 straight games, finished 0-for-4 after his first-inning infield single was reversed to an error on Somerset’s Brandon Larson.

The Patriots (17-16, 57-46) got on the board in the first via Josh Pressley’s RBI double, a two-run double from Matt Hagen and an RBI single from Jason Belcher. York then loaded the bases in the second inning and got a two-run single from Keoni De Renne, but De Renne (pictured) was thrown out at first base after attempting to advance to second where Taveras was standing.

York (19-15, 50-55) couldn’t take advantage of five walks from Jim Magrane (5-9) — the same man who pitched the Patriots to the first-half Freedom Division title with a complete game win in the final game of the first half — while the Patriots kept piling on runs. Teuris Olivares had an RBI double to extend the lead to three runs and after Elliot Ayala’s RBI single in the fifth, center fielder Kennard Jones dropped what would have been an inning-ending flyout to allow the Patriots another run.

Wayne Franklin (7-5) gave up seven runs (six earned) and 10 hits in six innings to take the loss. Aaron Rakers made another relief appearance, pitching a 1-2-3 seventh, and Matt Trent pitched a scoreless eighth.

York will send Rolando Viera (1-0, 1.29 ERA) to the hill against Aaron Fultz (3-3, 4.53 ERA) Sunday afternoon. The Revs now lead Somerset by two games in the Freedom Division.
