Revs explode for season-high eight runs in victory at Camden
One night after snapping a five-game losing streak, the York Revolution's bats exploded for a season high in runs in its 8-3 win over the Camden Riversharks at Campbell's Field on Thursday.
The victory earned York a series win over Camden, bouncing back from a four-game sweep to Southern Maryland at home over the weekend.
Catcher Salvador Paniagua got the scoring started for the Revs (8-12) with a two-run single in the third. That was plenty for Anthony Lerew, who threw five innings of scoreless ball, giving way to the bullpen for the sixth.
York got some insurance three innings later, courtesy of an Andres Perez RBI single and a Brandon Jones RBI fielder's choice. At that point, that was enough insurance for the Revs and the bullpen, but for good measure, they broke it open in the late innings.
Perez drove in another run in the eighth to make it 5-1. Then, after Brandon Boggs drove in two more on a double in the top of the ninth, Perez brought home another runner to make it 8-1 York.
The Riversharks tacked on two runs in the bottom of the frame, but it was too little, too late. York completed the series win and won its fifth out of last six road contests.
Perez was the big performer at the plate for the Revs, coming away with four of the team's 15 hits and driving in three of the team's eight runs. Mikey Reynolds and Johan Limonta each had three-hit nights.
On the hill, Lerew improved to 2-1 in four starts for York.
The Revs will look to carry their new-found momentum into Sugar Land. They embark on a four-game set in Texas beginning Friday night.
