Game 112: York 2, Camden 1

Earlier in the season, it seemed every game hinged on the York Revolution’s offense.

Either the Revs found a way to score enough to win. Or they wilted away in the late innings.

But York has certainly done its best to erase that formula lately.

The Revs (24-18, 54-58) played one of their most fundamental games of the season and knocked off Camden 2-1 Saturday night in front of a record crowd of 6,643 at Sovereign Bank Stadium. Matt Dryer launched a solo homer in the eighth inning to tie the game, 1-1. Then Matt Padgett came up with the bases loaded in the ninth and ripped an RBI single to extend York’s lead to 4 1/2 games in the Freedom Division.

The late-inning comeback was set up by York’s Corey Thurman. The Atlantic League Pitcher of the Month for June tossed seven innings and only allowed one earned run but didn’t factor in the decision. Franklin Nunez (2-0) picked up his second win in relief for the Revs by pitching a scoreless ninth.

Perhaps the play of the game came in Camden’s half of the ninth. Cody Collet singled and Sheldon Fulse followed with a double, but Collet was thrown out at home plate on a relay from Keoni De Renne that hit the ground at least three times before reaching catcher Sandy Aracena. The play kept Camden (16-25, 56-55) from breaking the game open and kept York within striking distance in the ninth.

The Revs will send Aaron Rakers to the hill Sunday against Riversharks’ starter Jose Lima.
