York was victimized by a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and the Revolution dropped the series finale to the Lancaster Barnstormers 3-2 on Tuesday night in front of 4,285 fans at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

The Revs will conclude their road trip having won two of three at both Somerset and Lancaster, and will return home tied for first place in the second-half Atlantic League Freedom Division standings when they play host to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in the first of a three-game series on Wednesday night at 6:30.

York plated the game's first run in the top of the first. League batting average leader Justin Greene led off with an infield single. Wilson Valdez moved Greene with a sacrifice bunt, and with two outs, Chad Tracy roped an RBI double to left-center.

The Barnstormers gave York starter Logan Williamson a rough first inning, answering to tie the score on a bases-loaded walk. Williamson would quickly recover, retiring 17 of 18 batters into the seventh. With the game still deadlocked, Lancaster scored two unearned runs in the seventh.

The Revs rallied for a run in the ninth against closer Jason Urquidez. Alberto Espinosa was hit by a pitch with one out, and with two outs, Valdez singled to left. Eric Patterson followed with a bloop single to left, scoring pinch-runner Sean Smith to make it a one-run game. Urquidez would rebound to retire Tracy on a fly ball to left, however, preserving the win for Lancaster, and picking up his 15th save.

Lancaster reliever Pete Andrelczyk (3-5) earned the win with two scoreless innings in relief of Chris Schwinden, who scattered seven hits and allowed just one run over six innings of work.

Williamson (3-4) suffered the hard-luck loss for the Revs, giving up three runs (one earned) on only four hits while tying his season-high with seven innings pitched.

The Revs out-hit the Barnstormers 10-4. Patterson went 3-for-5, extending his hitting streak to six. Tracy was 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles, and Ofilio Castro (2-for-4) enjoyed a multi-hit night.

Greene's first-inning single extended his hitting streak to eight consecutive games. He has now hit safely in 17 of his last 18 contests.

The Revs drop to 10-6 against the Barnstormers in the War of the Roses series, having already retained the Community Cup by clinching at least a tie in the season series after winning outright last season.

Revs righty Scott Gorgen (3-7, 6.96) will make the start on Wednesday vs. the Crabs.
