Recent surge continues for York Revolution with doubleheader sweep of Somerset

Telvin Nash hit his 25th homer of the season on Thursday for the York Revolution.

The York Revolution’s fortunes have taken a decided turn for the better in the last 4 1/2 weeks.

On June 10, the Revs sat at 13-30.

Since that time, they’ve gone 26-7, including a road doubleheader sweep of the Somerset Patriots on Thursday afternoon in New Jersey, 3-2 and 2-1.

York now stands at 39-37 overall, including a 5-2 mark in the second half of the Atlantic League season. The Revs are just a half game behind Southern Maryland (5-1) in the second-half Freedom Division standings.

York’s pitchers took center stage on Thursday, limiting Somerset to three runs and 13 hits in the two seven-inning games.

In the opener, Daniel Minor went five innings and allowed two runs in a no-decision. Reliever Cesar Cabral (2-1) got the win with an inning of shutout relief. Josh Judy pitched a shutout seventh for his seventh save, lowering his ERA to 1.82.

Telvin Nash had a solo homer for York, his 25th of the season. Henry Castillo drove in the other two runs.

In the second game, five York pitchers combined on a six-hitter. Julio Perez (2-1) got the win with two innings of hitless, shutout relief, striking out two and walking two. Jameson McGrane got his seventh save with 1 1/3 innings of one-hit relief, lowering his ERA to 1.52.

James Skelton and recently-acquired Zach Sullivan had solo homers for York. Nash and Justin Trapp each added two hits for York. Nash and Isaias Tejeda doubled.

York now goes on a three-game road trip to New Britain before returning home on Monday, July 22, for a six-game homestand vs. Sugar Land and New Britain.
