Game 114: York 9, Somerset 6

After an electrifying six-hit game that included a walk-off homer on June 30, Kennard Jones had fallen on tough times.

Atlantic League pitchers learned his weaknesses. He was no longer the man who hit a robust .388 in 16 June games. York Revolution manager Chris Hoiles has even bumped Jones down to the bottom third of the Revs’ lineup lately

Then the power came back in a big way Tuesday night.

Jones came to the plate with a runner on in the eighth and launched a deep homer to dead center field that was the game-winning hit in the Revolution’s 9-6 win over Somerset at Commerce Bank Park. Jones entered the game with a .233 average in the Revs’ last 10 games.

York (25-19, 55-59) also homered three other times on the night and came within one long ball of matching its team season high. Matt Dryer hit a two-run jack during a four-run second inning for his 11th homer in his last 28 games. And Jason Aspito hit his team-leading 20th bomb, a solo shot, while Matt Esquivel also blasted a solo dinger. Aspito, Esquivel and Sandy Aracena each had three hits.

All the offense helped York maintain its three-game lead in the Freedom Division over Newark and allowed starting pitcher Dan Foli to get off the hook. Foli allowed five earned runs in five-plus innings with nine hits, three walks and five strikeouts.

The Revs entered the game with Somerset (19-24, 59-54) only averaging four runs per game over the last nine outings. But 16 hits helped York bust out of that funk.

York has now won four of the last five in Bridgewater, N.J. and Dave Gil (4-5, 5.58 ERA) will make his return to the starting rotation Wednesday night. He’ll oppose the Patriots’ Jim Magrane (5-10, 5.23 ERA).
