Revs bats stay quiet as they drop game, series to Bridgeport
- The York Revolution dropped a 3-1 result to the Bridgeport Bluefish on Thursday night.
- Bridgeport broke a 1-1 tie with two runs in the bottom of the eighth to earn the win.
- Logan Williamson pitched seven innings on one-run ball for York, taking a no-decision.
The York Revolution players probably wish they would've saved some of the runs from Wednesday's win for Thursday's game.
One night after plating 12 runs against the Bridgeport Bluefish, York only mustered a single run in Thursday's 3-1 defeat at Harbor Yard.
The loss gave Bridgeport (38-29) the series victory, while the Revs (25-42) continue to slide as the first half of the Atlantic League season winds down.
The difference in Thursday's game came in the bottom of the eighth with the game deadlocked at 1-1. The Bluefish scored twice off of York reliever Drue Bravo to grab the 3-1 lead.
With only one inning to try and make up the deficit, the Revs got their leadoff guy on base, when Dayron Varona singled to start the top of the ninth. Varona advanced to third over the course of the inning, but was never brought home. The next three York hitters were retired.
It didn't take Bridgeport long to open the game's scoring, getting on the board in the bottom half of the first inning to take a 1-0 advantage.
The Revs equalized in the top of the fifth with an infield, RBI single by Alonzo Harris, scoring Carlos Triunfel to make it a 1-1 game.
York starter Logan Williamson had his best start of the season, pitching seven strong innings, the most he's thrown this year, allowing the one earned run to get credited with a quality start. He scattered six hits and walked two, while striking out two.
However, his offense couldn't get him the run support needed to earn the win. The Revs were held in check by Bluefish starter Charles Brewer. He pitched 6 2/3 innings of four-hit ball, allowing the lone run in the fifth, walking two and striking out seven. Three relievers combined to get the last seven outs, with Brian Moran earning the win.
York will head home for a weekend series against the Sugar Land Skeeters to close out the first half of the season. First pitch for Friday's game is set for 6:30 p.m. at PeoplesBank Park.
