York was denied a road sweep and the Revolution's four-game winning streak was snapped on Wednesday evening with a 2-1 loss to the Bridgeport Bluefish at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard.
The win was the 1,000th in franchise history for the Bluefish. They became the first team in league history to reach the milestone.
After Thursday's off day, the Revs return to action on Friday night in Lancaster to open a weekend series against the Barnstormers at 7 p.m. York fell six games behind the Barnstormers for first place in the Atlantic League Freedom Division.
Elliott Ayala drove in both runs for the Bluefish with RBI singles in the second and sixth innings. Those were the only two blemishes on the line of Revs' starter Chris Cody (4-7), who suffered the tough-luck loss, allowing just six hits and one walk in six innings while striking out five.
York's hot offense was held in check by lefty Mike Tarsi (1-0), who allowed just three hits in five scoreless innings in his first start of the season.
Reliever Chris Hayes kept the combined shutout rolling into the eighth before the Revs plated an unearned run on an RBI groundout by Ramon Castro, his league-leading 45th RBI of the season. That's all that York could manage. Hayes totaled 31/3 innings in relief, and Rommie Lewis induced a game-ending double play grounder for his first save.
The Revs had leadoff doubles from Salvador Paniagua in the third and Travis Scott in the seventh but were unable to score in either inning. York also had runners at second and third with one out in the eighth after a Scott Grimes single and an error by right fielder Prentice Redman, but could only muster the one run on Castro's groundout.
Notes: Stephen Penney tossed two perfect innings in relief for York. ... Scott (2-for-4) extended his hitting streak to eight consecutive games. ... Brandon Haveman (0-for-4) lost a 10-game streak, held hitless for just the fifth time in his 35 games with York. ... The four-game winning streak was the Revs' third in the month of June. ... York's Matt Chico (0-1, 7.00) will face Lancaster's John Halama (5-4, 2.61) at 7 Friday night in Lancaster.
