Revs' scoreless streak at 32 innings after 4-0 loss to Skeeters
It's now been 32 innings since the York Revolution last scored a run.
That's a new club record for offensive futility.
The Revs got blanked again on Thursday night, dropping a 4-0 decision to the Sugar Land Skeeters in front of an announced crowd of 4,018 at Santander Stadium.
Ramon Delgado and four Skeeters relievers combined for a five-hit shutout.
Shawn Hill (1-4) took the loss, despite going seven strong innings for the Revs, striking out seven in the process. He allowed just three runs, only two of which were earned.
Sugar Land jumped out to an early lead on a Dustin Martin double in the first inning. The Skeeters would quickly strike again the following inning, with Patrick Palmeiro bringing home Denny Almonte with an RBI single. Hill settled down after that, scattering only four singles and one additional unearned run.
The Revs, meanwhile, simply could not get anything going on the offensive side, only tallying one multi-hit inning all game.
Leyson Septimo ran into a bit of trouble during his lone inning of work, giving up an RBI single to catcher Chris Wallace in the eighth. Joe Harris entered in the ninth and pitched a 1-2-3 inning for the Revs.
Delgado worked the first four innings for the Skeeters. James Parr (1-1) picked up the win with a scoreless fifth and sixth innings. Derrick Loop, Andrew Johnston and John Lujan combined to close it out, each with a scoreless inning.
The Revs fell to 15-24, while the Skeeters improved to 18-22.
York looks to rebound Friday evening at Santander Stadium when righty Anthony Lerew (3-1, 3.89) looks to act as a stopper for the ballclub against opposing right-hander Josh Geer (0-0, 2.70).
Notes: Hill tied a season-high with his seven innings. His seven strikeouts match the most by a Revs starter in a game this season (Rommie Lewis, May 28 at Camden). Hill enjoyed a rare four-pitch inning in a 1-2-3 sixth. ... The Revs have been shut out in three consecutive games. Their previous high was two consecutive games, which had occurred five times. ... The franchise's previous longest scoreless streak for the offense was 23 consecutive innings set on three occasions. ... The loss is the fourth straight overall for the Revs.
