York's Travis Witherspoon scored a run and drove in the winning run on Wednesday night as the Revs edged Southern Maryland, 3-2.

One night after the York Revolution erased a six-run deficit, but still lost to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, York made sure to finish the job on Wednesday night.

After Southern Maryland jumped out to an early five-run lead, York's bats stayed red-hot throughout the night, helping the home side to a 15-9 win at PeoplesBank Park and snapping a seven-game losing streak.

The Revs (22-37) scored a run in the bottom of the first to go up 1-0, but the Blue Crabs (33-25) struck for six runs in the top half of the second. It looked like it was bound to be a long night for York, but it didn't take the home team long to showcase its comeback prowess one more time.

The Revs answered with four runs in the bottom of the second to pull to within one and then took the lead for good with six runs in the third to go up 11-6. For good measure, they added three more runs in the fourth to build a 14-6 cushion. 

Southern Maryland did scratch across three runs between the fifth and sixth innings, but any comeback bid was halted when York added the game's final run in the bottom of the eighth. 

The two teams combined for 31 hits in the contest, with the Revs belting out 19 of them. Of those 19 hits, seven of them went for extra bases. Isaias Tejeda and newly-acquired Dayron Varona each had two doubles and Travis Witherspoon roped a triple. 

Varona drove in a team-high four runs, while Witherspoon and Tejeda chipped in with three apiece.

It wasn't a great night on the hill for York starer Logan Williamson, who allowed six earned runs on seven hits in just two innings of work. However, the Revs' bullpen was strong, working seven innings in relief of Williamson, allowing three earned runs on five hits and striking out eight.

The two sides will close out the four-game series on Thursday night, where York will look to answer its losing streak with a winning streak and earn a series split. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. at PeoplesBank Park.
