York drops back-and-forth decision against Bridgeport

  • York dropped a 7-6 decision to Bridgeport on Wednesday night.
  • Each team led on two different occasions in the game, with the Bluefish grabbing the final lead in the seventh inning.
  • The Revs scored three runs in the top of the first and fourth innings for their offense in the game.

In a back-and-forth affair on Wednesday night between the York Revolution and Bridgeport Bluefish, it was York that found itself on the wrong side of the final score.

Bridgeport struck twice in the bottom of the seventh to erase a Revs' lead and it was an advantage that stuck, with the Bluefish grabbing a 7-6 win at Harbor Yard.

The damage in the seventh inning was done by Jonathan Galvez, delivering a two-run home run off of York reliever Luke Westphal to make it 7-6, in favor of Bridgeport (2-1). The Bluefish went on to set down the Revs' hitters quietly in the eighth and ninth to close out the win.

It didn't take York (1-2) long to jump on top in the game, scoring three times in the top of the first. Jared Mitchell ripped a two-run single to open the scoring and then Luis Cruz walked with the bases loaded to make it 3-0. 

Bridgeport responded in the bottom of the third with a four-spot off Revs' starter Victor Mateo, briefly taking a 4-3 lead. York answered right back, again putting up three runs in a frame, this time in the fourth. Alonzo Harris and Isaias Tejeda each drove in a run with singles in the inning to make it 6-4.

The Bluefish would pull to within one with a run in the bottom of the fifth off of Mateo, before taking the lead for good in the seventh.

Mateo didn't have his best stuff for York. In five innings, he allowed five runs, four earned, on five hits and four walks, while failing to strike out any hitters. However, he still left in line for the win, until Westphal gave it up in the seventh.

The two teams will conclude the four-game series on Thursday, when the Revs will look to earn a series split. First pitch is set for 7:12 p.m. at Harbor Yard.
