Revs-Barnstormers game rained out on Sunday

STAFF REPORT
  • The War of the Roses series between York and Lancaster is now tied, 8-8.
  • Sunday's postponed game will be made up in Lancaster in mid-September.
  • York will play host to Sugar Land at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Sunday afternoon’s scheduled series finale between the York Revolution and Lancaster Barnstormers was postponed because of rain at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

The Revs earned a rain-shortened two-game sweep after winning the previous two nights, 12-3 and 11-6, respectively, and will return home to host the Sugar Land Skeeters in the first of a three-game series on Tuesday night.

York Revolution pitcher Frank Gailey allowed just two hits and struck out seven in six innings of work during the Revs' 6-1 win over the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs.

Sunday’s game will be made up as part of a doubleheader when the Revs make the season’s final visit to Lancaster, from Sept. 12-14. York evened the 2016 War of the Roses presented by PNC Bank by winning Friday and Saturday, squaring the season series at 8-8. York has won three straight against the Barnstormers, and three consecutive games overall, matching their longest road winning streak of the season for the third time. The sweep is their second in the last three road series overall, and their second all-time at Clipper Magazine Stadium, along with a three-game sweep May 5-7, 2015.

York lefty Frank Gailey (4-3, 2.94) will face Sugar Land southpaw Aaron Thompson (8-3, 3.45) on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in a potential Freedom Division Championship Series preview. The first-half champion Revs (64-48, 24-18) entered Sunday 2.5 games behind Sugar Land (62-51, 27-16) for first place in the second half. York owns the league’s best overall record while Sugar Land is tied for the second-best overall mark.
