Chris Cody broke the York Revolution single-season record for wins with his 15th victory of the season on Tuesday night, helping the Revs win their series opener against the Sugar Land Skeeters 4-2 at Constellation Field.
The Revs have won back-to-back games and will look to extend the streak on Wednesday with just five games remaining in the 2013 season.
Cody (15-8) eclipsed the previous record of 14 wins established by teammate Corey Thurman last season, when Thurman broke his own record of 13 wins from the year before. It marks the third consecutive season that a Revs pitcher has set a new franchise best for wins in a season.
Salvador Paniagua launched a two-run homer in the fourth for York, breaking a scoreless tie. The Revs added two in the ninth on RBI singles by Ofilio Castro and Chad Tracy.
A pair of singles chased Cody with one out in the ninth, but Stephen Penney nailed down his sixth save. Cody allowed two runs on eight hits in 81/3 innings. He struck out two and walked two.
The win is Cody's first career victory in six starts against Sugar Land. He has now beaten every Atlantic League foe at least once this season. Cody's 169 innings are also a new club record for a season.
