The York Revolution lost the final game of their road trip on Sunday afternoon, 5-3 against Southern Maryland at Regency Furniture Stadium.

The Revs were denied a chance at a third series win in as many tries on their nine-game road swing, losing two of three to the Blue Crabs. The Revs return home to open a six-game homestand on Tuesday evening, beginning with the first of three more against the Crabs at Sovereign Bank Stadium.

Southern Maryland scored a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the second to go on top.

York starter Corey Thurman (4-6) retired seven straight after the first, but allowed two more runs in the fifth.

Blue Crabs starter Gaby Hernandez (2-8) won his second straight start after losing his first eight decisions of the season. He faced the minimum number of hitters through 41/3 innings and carried a shutout into the sixth.

The Revs finally got on the board in the top of the sixth when Manny Mayorson led off with a double to left and James Shanks was hit by a pitch to set the table. Eric Patterson then singled to right, driving in Mayorson, but was thrown out attempting to stretch his hit into a double. With two outs, Andres Perez cashed in with an RBI single to left, bringing York within 4-2.

The Revs made it a one-run game an inning later, when Salvador Paniagua led off the seventh with a double to left and scored on Mayorson's single to center, but Southern Maryland tacked on an insurance run in the eighth to close out the scoring.
