The York Revolution's 2019 regular season ended in dramatic, winning fashion on Sunday.
The Revs can only hope that the momentum carries over into the playoffs, which start Tuesday.
Telvin Nash ended his monster regular season in emphatic fashion Sunday, belting a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Revs an unlikely and wild 13-12 victory over their rivals from across the Susquehanna River, the Lancaster Barnstormers.
The game was played in front of an announced crowd of 3,707 fans at PeoplesBank Park.
York won the second-half Atlantic League Freedom Division championship with a 41-29 record. The Revs (75-65 overall) also won their War of the Roses' seasonlong battle against Lancaster, 11-8. That gives the Community Cup to York.
Nash finished his standout regular season with 41 homers, 100 RBIs, 105 walks, 107 runs scored, a .423 on-base percentage, a .623 slugging percentage and a 1.046 on-base-plus-slugging percentage. He led the league in each of those categories. He also hit .294 on the season. He set an Atlantic League record for walks.
York also got big offensive efforts on Sunday from Ryan Dent (three hits, homer, two RBIs, two runs), James Skelton (three hits, RBI, run), Zach Sullivan (two hits, homer, three RBIs, run), Henry Castillo (two hits, double, two RBIs, two runs), Carlos Franco (two hits, homer, two runs, RBI), Melky Mesa (homer, two runs, RBI) and Justin Trapp (three hits).
In all, York finished with 18 hits, including five homers.
The Revs start the best-of-five Atlantic League Freedom Division Series on Tuesday against the Sugar Land Skeeters, who won the first-half Freedom Division crown.
The first two games in the series will be in Texas, followed by Game 3 in York at 6:30 Friday night. Game 4 and Game 5, if necessary, will also be in York at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.
