Dent's six RBIs help Revs win wild slugfest over rival Barnstormers, 10-9
- The York Revolution earned a wild, 10-9 victory over rival Lancaster on Sunday.
- Ryan Dent pounded four hits and six RBIs to lead the York offense.
- After a Monday off day, York plays New Britain in a home doubleheader Tuesday.
The York Revolution led by as many as three and trailed by as many as three, but in a wild rubber game against the Lancaster Barnstormers, came back to win 10-9 behind a four-hit, six-RBI performance from Ryan Dent on Sunday afternoon at PeoplesBank Park.
The Revs tallied at least one hit in every inning.
Dent’s six RBIs tied the fourth most in a game in Revs history, and set a personal career high. He had previously tallied five RBIs in a game on June 30, 2009, with Greenville (at Charleston), and on April 3, 2014 with Salem (at Myrtle Beach), both while in the Boston Red Sox organization.
York's Alexi Casilla went 3 for 3 with four runs scored, and marked his second consecutive full game played with a three-hit performance. Carlos Triunfel went 3-for-4.
The game was tied 9-9 entering the bottom of the seventh when York was able to muster one final, deciding answer. Casilla was hit by a pitch with two outs. The next batter was Dent, who again answered the call with a double to right center. Casilla came all the way around from first to score the eventual game-winning run.
Brad Allen came in for a four-out save, ending his day with a double-play ball and a strikeout in the ninth for his sixth save of the season, as the Revs won their first series rubber match of the season. Manny Corpas (1-0) picked up his first win of the season in relief, going two-thirds of an inning without being charged with a run.
The final score was the highest combined total between the Revs and their opponents in a game this season. The Revs improve to 4-3 head-to-head against Lancaster on the season.
York’s 15 hits were a season-high, while its 10 runs marked the third time they’ve scored in double digits and first since May 20 in a 10-5 win at Sugar Land.
A six-run, third-inning outburst by Lancaster was just the second time the Revs have allowed more than four runs in an inning all season.
After a day off on Monday, the Revs will play host to the New Britain Bees in a doubleheader on Tuesday beginning at 5 p.m. at PeoplesBank Park.
