Delwyn Young's pinch-hit double broke a tie score in the top of the ninth inning, giving the Camden Riversharks a 3-2 win over the York Revolution on Tuesday evening in front of 3,767 fans at Sovereign Bank Stadium.
Having split the first two games of the series, the two clubs will meet again on Camp Day at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
York quickly scored the game's first run when Kody Kirkland led off the bottom of the first with a triple, and Ruddy Yan followed with a sacrifice fly. The Revs were denied at least one more run, however, when center fielder Billy Rice made a great running grab on Chad Tracy's drive to deep center, ending the inning.
Revs starter Brett Tomko maintained the lead early on. He struck out three consecutive batters after allowing a first-pitch triple to Raul Padron in the top of the second. The Riversharks did get on the board in the top of the fourth, however, when Valentino Pascucci hit a solo homer, tying the score at 1-1 on the 300th homer of his career.
The Riversharks took a 2-1 lead on an RBI single by Padron in the top of the sixth, but Tomko prevented further damage, leaving the bases loaded.
The Revs answered right back with a run in their half of the sixth, when Yan singled with one out, stole second, went to third on a wild pitch and later scored on a sac fly by Tracy, tying the game at 2-2. The Revs also missed out on a big inning, however. Mark Teahen's single loaded the bases with two outs, but Andy Marte was thrown out trying to dive back to second for the final out of the inning.
Camden set the stage for the tiebreaking run in the ninth when Dionys Cesar led off the inning with a single against reliever Julio DePaula (0-1). Juan Martinez followed with a sacrifice bunt, and with two outs, Young lined the only pitch he saw all night to the gap in left-center for the game-winning pinch-hit double.
Notes: Tomko took a no-decision, despite a fifth consecutive quality start and seventh in his last eight outings. He tied a season-high by logging seven innings for the fifth consecutive outing and ninth time overall this season. ... York's Pedro Liriano (4-3, 4.15) will square off against righty Jake Hale (1-2, 5.15) in Wednesday's tilt.
