Game 132: Long Island 12, York 7

It wasn’t all that long ago that games against Long Island were a welcome sight for the York Revolution.

Now, that feeling has changed. And the Revs are undoubtedly happy they won’t be seeing the Ducks anytime soon. 

Long Island roughed up York’s Corey Thurman Sunday afternoon at Citibank Park in the Ducks’ 12-7 victory. York (35-27) was 12-3 against Long Island (36-27) at one point before losing four of five to close out the season series with the Ducks. The Revs also saw their lead in the Freedom Division shrink to three games thanks to Lancster’s 17-6 win over Bridgeport.

Thurman (11-7) had his roughest outing since July on Sunday. The former Toronto Blue Jay (pictured) surrendered 10 hits and seven earned runs in four innings. He was hit hard early and Long Island captured a 5-0 lead after just two innings of play.

York made a couple of comeback attempts, however, thanks to homers from Matt Esquivel (3-for-5, three RBIs) and Sandy Aracena (2-for-3, three RBIs). But the duo of Saul Solveson and Juan Padilla couldn’t hold off the Ducks. Solveson allowed three runs (one earned) in 2 1/3 innings — an outing that included back-to-back wild pitches — and Padilla gave up two earned runs and three hits in 2/3 of an inning.

Carl Everett had a monster day for Long Island. The former major leaguer finished 3-for-5 with five RBIs and connected for his 27th homer of the season. P.J. Rose and Damian Rolls also knocked in two runs apiece for the Ducks.

York will now travel to Newark for the start of a big three-game series with the Bears. Newark is 4 1/2 games back of the Revs in the Freedom Division and holds a 6-1 record against the Revs at Bears and Eagles Riverfront Stadium.

  1. Another note: Revolution Rumblings hits the road for the Newark series Monday. So I’ll have plenty of updates.

  2. I’ll be at the game on Tuesday in Newark, hope we bring them luck!

  3. It’s pretty cool that the last 8 are against exactly who we need them to be against.

    York only has itself to blame if they don’t make it now.

    Go Revs!

  4. Boom,,,,outta here is right,. This week must be making the Atlantic League management happy.

    The Revs have a challenge: They need to double their win total in Newark. They’re 1-6 there this season. if the Bears sweep them, we may have to sweep Lancaster to win it. However, if we can win at least one from Newark, them we have five chances to win 3 from Lancster.

    Somerset is the real wild card here. It they win 1 from Lancaster and 1 from Newark, the Revs can win it with 1 in Newark and 2 from Lancaster. Somerset has an incentive. They know they have a game on 9/23 and they’re 4-6 in their last 10. They need to win some games this week. Every Patriot win helps the Revs.

    Lancaster and Newark don’t have much room for mistakes this week.

    This is definitely going to be a white knuckle week in York County!
