    • Sources: Giants shift coach search to Shurmur January 15, 2018

Game 138: York 8, Lancaster 1; Game 139: York 12, Lancaster 5

The York Revolution’s players and its coaching staff won’t have to worry about creating momentum for the playoffs.

The Revs are already functioning like a well-oiled machine.

That was evident Saturday as the Revs took both ends of the first Route 30, day-night doubleheader in history. York won 8-1 in the noon game at Sovereign Bank Stadium and then brought its surging offense across the Susquehanna River to Clipper Magazine Stadium. The Revs torched Lancaster pitching in the nightcap, securing a 12-5 victory.

The victories mean that no matter what happens on Sunday, York (40-29, 70-69) will finish with a .500 overall record this year. But in order to win the Community Cup (pictured) and the 2008 War of the Roses outright, the Revs will need a win Sunday. A 10-10 tie would result in last year’s War of the Roses winner (Lancaster) retaining the cup and York currently holds a 10-9 advantage in the series.

In Game 1 of the twinbill, York used Rolando Viera for two scoreless innings before turning the game over to the bullpen. Saul Solveson (two innings, one earned), Juan Padilla (win; two scoreless), Jason Olson (two scoreless) and Travis Phelps (one scoreless) closed out the win. Kennard Jones went 3-for-5 and finished a triple short of the cycle with two RBIs to lead the way for the offense.

In Game 2, the Revs found themselves in a 2-0 hole after the first inning. But a two-run double from Jose Enrique Cruz in the second tied things up and it was all York from there. The Revolution scored eight runs in the sixth inning — including a two-run double from Keoni De Renne, a two-run single from Chris Ashby, a three-run homer from Matt Esquivel (pictured) and an RBI single from Matt Padgett. All the damage came against Lancaster’s Sendy Rleal, who dropped to 6-5.

Jason Aspito added an RBI double in the seventh to cap the scoring and the hit gave him 105 RBIs on the season.

Dave Gil (6-5) picked up the win for York in the nightcap with six innings and only two earned runs allowed. Gil, who brought a 2.84 ERA in three September outings into the start, should provide a nice long man out of the bullpen for York in the playoffs. That’s assuming he isn’t needed as a starter at some point.

Dan Foli (7-7, 4.81), who came up big in Newark in his last outing, will start the season finale Sunday at 1:35 p.m. in Lancaster. Ben Fritz (3-1, 4.18) will go for the ‘Stormers.
