Revs suffer 4-3 loss to Riversharks in rubber game of series
The York Revolution made a run at a comeback on Thursday night, but dropped the series rubber match to the Camden Riversharks, 4-3 at Santander Stadium.
York dropped two of three in the series, and will look to rebound when hosting the Bridgeport Bluefish in the first of a four-game series that begins on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
Camden struck for a two-out run in the top of the first. York answered in the bottom of the second when Andres Perez tattooed a homer to left on the first pitch of the inning, his 14th of the year and 50th all-time with York, becoming the second in club history to reach that milestone. Perez has homered in back-to-back games and has hit 11 home runs since July 14. He finishes the season series with five home runs and 22 RBIs in 17 games against Camden. Perez now leads the league with 72 RBIs.
Camden starter Bill Murphy (6-14) settled in, however, striking out eight of 10 batters at one point and limiting York to just two hits and one run over five innings to earn the win.
Camden took the lead for good with two runs in the fifth off Revs starter Cody Scarpetta.
York did inch closer in the sixth when Brandon Boggs doubled and scored on a two-out single to left by Telvin Nash, pulling York within 3-2.
Camden added a crucial insurance run in the top of the eighth. York scored one in the ninth on an RBI double by Wilson Valdez, but couldn't get the equalizer.
York finishes the season series 10-7 vs. Camden.
York lefty Logan Williamson (7-11, 3.88) makes the start on Friday against Bridgeport.
Parking changes: Because of York High's home football games on two upcoming Friday nights (Sept. 4 and Sept. 18), the Small Athletic Field parking lot usually reserved for York Revolution games will not be available to fans attending the baseball games those evenings.
Alternate parking will be provided at the Northwest Triangle parking lot, located on Beaver Street within sight of Santander Stadium. Fans should turn onto North Street off of George Street, and take a left onto Beaver Street to park in that lot.
Fans already holding parking passes to any handicapped parking areas around the stadium, or skybox ticket holders with passes for the Queen Street lot behind the ballpark, will be unaffected by these parking changes and may park as they normally would. Other lots usually in use for Revolution games will be unaffected by the York High football games.
The handicapped parking areas will operate as usual — the Brooks Robinson Plaza lot on the stadium grounds and the "creekside" lot adjacent to the stadium on George and Beaver streets.
The Revolution organization is encouraging fans of their games to arrive downtown early to park on Sept. 4 and Sept. 18 to avoid delays that could result in arriving late to Santander Stadium.
