New Britain's Marzi stifles York with complete-game shutout
The York Revolution had no answers for New Britain Bees starter Anthony Marzi on Wednesday night.
The Revs were shut out, 2-0, at PeoplesBank Park.
Marzi held York (21-31) to just five hits, but didn't overpower the Revs, managing just two strikeouts.
New Britain (19-33) didn't take long to stake Marzi to a lead, scoring a run in the top of the first off of York starter Victor Mateo.
Both pitchers held the offenses off the scoreboard over the next six innings, before the Bees added an insurance run in the top of the eighth to push their lead to 2-0.
The Revs never had a response, but did bring the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the ninth, but failed to deliver.
Mateo did his best to keep York in the game, scattering nine hits over seven innings of one-run ball. He struck out four, before handing it over to the bullpen. Hawtin Buchanan surrendered the run in the eighth inning, while Ricardo Gomez pitched a clean top of the ninth.
The Revs got two hits from Alexi Casilla, while Alonzo Harris, Isaias Tejeda and Travis Witherspoon each collected one.
The two sides will conclude their four-game series on Thursday with first pitch set for 6:30 p.m. at PeoplesBank Park.
