Revs' game vs. Southern Maryland suspended after five innings, with scored tied 1-1


The final game of the four-game series between the York Revolution and the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs was suspended after five innings because of rain on Thursday.

The score was tied 1-1.

By getting through five innings, that allows for the game to be suspended and completed when the Revs are back in Southern Maryland on Sept. 11. Had the game not completed five full innings, it would've been postponed and the two teams would have had to re-start the game.

Telvin Nash got York on the board in the top of the second with a solo home run. It was his fifth of the season.

Southern Maryland answered back in the bottom of the third on an RBI groundout by Antone DeJesus.

Revs starter Matt Neil had a strong game going on the mound, allowing just two hits and an unearned run in the five innings. He also recorded two strikeouts.

York still managed to pick up a half game on the Lancaster Barnstormers in the Atlantic League Freedom Division standings. Lancaster lost to the Camden Riversharks, 5-3, moving the Revs to within 2 1/2 games of first place.

York returns home on Friday for a quick three-game homestand. It'll face the Somerset Patriots, with first pitch scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Santander Stadium.
