York's bats go silent again in loss to Bridgeport

STAFF REPORT
  • York was held to just four hits in its shutout loss to Bridgeport.
  • Ty'Relle Harris lasted 5 2/3 innings on the mound, taking the loss.
  • Isaias Tejeda extended his hitting streak to 25 games, second longest in York franchise history.

For the second straight night, the York Revolution bats went silent against the Bridgeport Bluefish.

Isaias Tejeda belted his team-leading sixth homer of the season on Tuesday for York, a grand slam. The Revs still lost, 8-6.

After managing just five hits in Monday night's 3-1 loss to Bridgeport, York could only muster four in its 4-0 shutout defeat to the Bluefish on Tuesday night at Harbor Yard.

The Revs (67-53 overall, 27-23 second half) fell behind in the first inning and never had the firepower to catch up. Bridgeport (57-64, 27-24) opened up a 1-0 lead after the opening frame and then extended that advantage to 2-0 with another run in the bottom of the fourth.

The final blow to any shot of York making a comeback came in the following inning when Jose Gil brought home two more runs for the Bluefish to make it 4-0. At that point, with the Revs struggling to find hits, the result wasn't in doubt.

Ty'Relle Harris took the loss for York, going 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs, three earned, on seven hits, four walks and four strikeouts. Michael Click and Nate Reed relieved him and combined to pitch the final 2 1/3 innings in scoreless fashion.

The lone bright spot in the game for the Revs came from Isaias Tejeda, who manufactured one of the team's four hits. With that, he extended his hitting streak to 25 games, dating back to before he had his contract purchased by the Atlanta Braves. That streak is good for second on the franchise's all-time list.

York will look to get on the board in the four-game series in Game 3 Wednesday night. First pitch for that contest is set for 7:12 p.m. at Harbor Yard.
