York (13-16 overall, 8-7 Capital Athletic Conference) also got big efforts from Dustin Worthman (3-for-4, two RBIs, three runs) and Drew Frankenfield (2-for-4, five RBIs).
Elizabethtown fell to 15-12.
Senior KC Beshore (1-2) picked up the win by tossing two scoreless innings in relief, allowing just one hit and striking out two. Reliever Dan McNamara entered the game in the top of the seventh with York up, 8-5. He went on to close out the game with three scoreless innings to pick up his first save of the season.
York's Nic Long and Colbe Herr each had two hits in the 15-hit Spartan attack. Herr contributed two RBIs and scored a run while Long scored three runs and drove in another.
