Chris Waters fired the first one-hitter in York Revolution history and the Revs earned the franchise's 400th all-time victory with a 6-0 decision over the Sugar Land Skeeters in front of 6,131 fans at Constellation Field.
The playoff-bound Revs are within 1½ games of first place in the Atlantic League Freedom Division with five to play. They have now won six consecutive games.
Waters needed just 85 pitches, 60 of which were strikes, to complete his masterpiece. The lefty allowed only a two-out double to Aaron Bates in the fifth inning, retiring 27 of 28 total hitters on the night. It was just the third nine-inning complete game shutout in Revs' history, and it was the fourth shutout of Waters' career, his first since Sept. 16, 2008, with the Baltimore Orioles, when he blanked the Blue Jays in Toronto.
York provided Waters with a quick lead when Joe Thurston nailed a solo homer to right in the top of the first, just the fourth homer all season to leave Constellation Field in right field.
Johan Limonta doubled to deep left with one out in the second, and Jeff Fiorentino followed with a ground-rule double to deep right-center, plating Limonta to make it 2-0. Salomon Manriquez then laced an RBI single to center to increase the lead to 3-0, and extend his hitting streak to 13 consecutive games, the Revs' third longest of the year.
Chris Nowak ripped a two-run single to left in the top of the fourth, giving him a league-leading 104 RBIs for the year, 14 more than any other hitter in the Atlantic League. His next RBI will tie the Revs' single-season club record of 105, set by Jason Aspito in 2008.
York scored one more run in the fourth when Scott Grimes reached on a three-base error by right fielder Dionys Cesar, and scored on a single to right from Brandon Haveman. It was part of a three-hit night for the Revs' leadoff man, who extended his hitting streak to 12 consecutive games in the process.
Limonta also collected three hits, part of a 12-hit night for the offense.
The shutout was the second in as many games for the Revs, and team-record 11th of the season.
York is now a season-high 17 games over .500 at 76-59 overall, and at 40-25 in the second half, needs just one more win to tie a team record for wins in a half.
The Revs will aim to tie their longest winning streak of the season with a seventh consecutive victory on Wednesday night in Sugar Land at 8:05 p.m. ET, when lefty Chris Cody (10-13, 4.35) makes his final start of the regular season, against the Skeeters' Jason Lane (8-5, 3.11).
