The York Revolution's second-half Atlantic League surge has hit a bump in the road.
The Revs lost for the ninth time in 12 games on Sunday afternoon, 10-7, to the Lancaster Barnstormers. The War of the Roses game was played in front of an announced crowd of 3,493 fans at PeoplesBank Park.
The loss dropped York's record to 21-15 in the Freedom Division second-half standings. The Revs now trail Sugar Land (21-14) by a half game in the standings, pending Sugar Land's game against New Britain on Sunday night.
On Sunday, York trailed 9-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth before rallying for two runs in the sixth and four runs in the eighth to cut the margin to 9-7. The Revs, however, could get no closer.
York's offense produced 10 hits, led by Isaias Tejeda (three hits, two runs, double), Justin Trapp (three hits, double), Carlos Franco (two hits, run), Ryan Dent (two-run homer) and Angelys Nina (two RBIs, run).
York's pitchers, however, got pounded for 14 hits.
Despite losing the three-game series vs. Lancaster, 2-1, the Revs still lead 8-5 on the season against the Barnstormers. York is still two wins shy of winning the Community Cup.
York continues its home stand with a four-game set vs. Southern Maryland. The games are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. from Monday through Thursday evenings.
