Road Warriors hand York Revolution pair of Atlantic League losses on Wednesday
It was not the best of days for the York Revolution on Wednesday.
The Revs dropped a day-night doubleheader against the Road Warriors at PeoplesBank Park.
In the opener, York took a 2-0 lead into the ninth, only to see A.J. Jimenez slug a three-run homer to give the Warriors a 3-2 triumph.
In the night cap, the Revs jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first and led 3-2 after six, but the Warriors erupted for eight runs in the seventh en route to a 10-4 triumph.
The loss dropped the Revs to 4-3 on the Atlantic League season.
In the opener, York wasted some fine pitching from starter Zac Grotz (five shutout innings, three hits, four strikeouts) and relievers Joe Van Meter (two shutout innings) and Luke Westphal (a shutout inning).
Junior Rincon, however, gave up the three-run bomb in the ninth and took the loss.
Jose Tabata homered for York and Alexi Casilla had two hits.
In the second game, York again got a good start from former Washington National Ross Detwiler, who went six innings and gave up two runs and four hits with seven strikeouts.
Reliever Zac Treece, however, couldn't get an out and surrendered four runs in the seventh. Frank De Jiulio Jr. was also touched for two runs in the seventh, as was Nick Baker.
Zach Wilson led York's offense in the second game with two homers, three RBIs and two runs scored. Luis Cruz and Rubi Silva each added two York hits.
The Revs have Thursday off before traveling to Lancaster on Friday.
