Game 137: Lancaster 12, York 3

Whether it was the champagne hangover or just an off night for the York Revolution, it really doesn’t matter.

York’s most pressing task over the final four regular season games is simple — prepare for the postseason by getting everyone rested and ready to go.

That fact took the sting out of a 12-3 loss to the Barnstormers Friday night at Sovereign Bank Stadium. Corey Thurman was shelled for 10 earned runs and 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings and Lancaster got homers from Matt LeCroy (2), Mike Woods, Lloyd Turner and Ian Bladergroen. The ‘Stormers now hold a 9-8 advantage in the War of the Roses and the chase for the Community Cup.

York (38-29, 68-69) was slowed by the pitching duo of Monte Mansfield and Wes Wilkerson. Mansfield went four with six walks, but escaped trouble by allowing only one earned run. And Wilkerson went the final five innings to pick up a save while only allowing two hits and a run in the process for the ‘Stormers (34-44, 64-73)

Matt Dryer hit his 18th homer for the Revs in the loss. Kennard Jones also had a big game with three hits but the group of Chris Ashby, Jason Aspito, Matt Esquivel and Matt Padgett combined to go 0-for-14.

Byron Batson (2 1/3 innings) and Matt Trent (three innings) finished out the blowout for the Revs.

York will now take on Lancaster in a two-city doubleheader Saturday. York will host Game 1 at home with a noon start and the Barnstormers will host the nightcap, set for 7 p.m. Rolando Viera and Dave Gil will be the starters for the Revs.

  1. I enjoyed being at the game yesterday, regardless of wether or not the Revolution won. Also on a side note there were a few Barnstormer’s fans sitting behind us, and they were pretty nice.
