Nash's walk-off homer lifts Revolution to win in 11
Telvin Nash's walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th powered the York Revolution to a 6-5 comeback win over the Bridgeport Bluefish on Tuesday night at PeoplesBank Park.
York (7-6) trailed 4-0 at one point, but rallied to take a 5-4 lead late in the game, before squandering that edge in the top of the eighth. Nash's heroics in the bottom of the 11th, however, lifted the team to a second straight win over Bridgeport (5-7) and into a tie for first place in the Atlantic League Freedom Division.
The home run was Nash's second of the night. His first came on a solo shot as the second part of a back-to-back blasts with Andres Perez in the third.
The Revs fell behind 4-0 through the top of the third, but they then scored four times in the bottom of the frame. Michael Rockett roped an RBI triple, which was followed by a Perez two-run homer and then Nash's solo shot to tie the game, 4-4.
Perez then hit his second homer of the night in the bottom of the fifth to put York ahead 5-4, a lead that it held until Bridgeport tied it in the top of the eighth on a sac fly.
Michael Click earned the win for the Revs, pitching the two extra innings, retiring all six batters he faced. Starter Mike McClendon battled through a tough start to go six innings, allowing four runs, three earned, on nine hits, a walk and two strikeouts.
The two teams wrap up their four-game series with a day-night doubleheader on Wednesday at PeoplesBank Park. The first game will be just seven innings and begin at 11 a.m., with the second game scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
