York 5, Lexington 4

(July 28, 2023 – Lexington, KY):  Tom Sutera tossed six strong innings and the York Revolution rallied to knock off the Lexington Counter Clocks, 5-4 on a sweltering Friday evening at Counter Clocks Field. The first place Revs improve to 10-5 in the second half and even their record on their western road trip.

The Revs offense was frustrated through five innings by Lexington starter Daniel Corcino who allowed only an infield hit.

Trailing 2-0, the Revs jumped on the Clocks bullpen in the sixth inning. Trent Giambrone’s single to left sparked a one-out rally against right hander Raymells Rosa (1-2) and Tomo Otosaka delivered a base hit to left center. Troy Stokes Jr. whacked a game-tying two-run double through the left center gap, and Drew Mendoza roped his own RBI double to right, plating Stokes Jr. to give York a 3-2 lead.

The Revs added important insurance runs each of the following two innings.

Jacob Rhinesmith and Jhon Nunez singled to set the table in the seventh and Alexis Pantoja’s fly ball advanced Rhinesmith to third. That set up Giambrone for a sac fly to right center, extending the lead to 4-2.

Nellie Rodriguez drilled a two-out RBI double to the gap in left center in the eighth, making it a 5-2 game.

Lexington pushed back as Osmy Gregorio connected on an opposite field two-run homer to right, but lefty Zach Neff buckled down to retire the next three against the heart of the order, handing a 5-4 lead to closer Will Carter in the ninth.

Brown greeted Carter with a leadoff single down the third base line, but Nunez came up with a huge caught stealing, nailing pinch runner Josue Huma for the first out. Carter retired the next two hitters on ground outs to seal the victory with his fourth save.

Sutera (7-3) won his fourth straight, limiting Lexington to just two runs on six hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out five.

Sutera kept things scoreless into the fourth when Lexington scratched across the game’s first two runs. Thomas Dillard’s one-out single preceded a legged-out chopper off the bat of JC Encarnacion. A wild pitch advanced both runners and Logan Brown dumped a two-run single into shallow left to give the Clocks a 2-0 lead.

Sutera rebounded with scoreless innings in the fifth and sixth, closed out with 4-6-3 double play grounders in both frames. Friday’s outing was his longest start since June 11 as he allowed his fewest runs since May 30. He also held the opposition without a home run for the third consecutive start.

Notes: Stokes Jr.’s two-run double gives him a team-leading 61 RBI on the year including 46 RBI in just 41 games since June 11.

Up Next: The Revs and Counter Clocks play a twi-night doubleheader on Saturday at 5 p.m. The Revs will play as the home team in the opener due to a rainout in York on July 9. Revs RHP J.T. Hintzen (7-3, 4.98) squares off with righty Yeudy Garcia (3-7, 6.67) in the opener. York RHP Pedro Vasquez (4-1, 6.75) takes the ball against Lexington lefty Pat Ledet (4-5, 5.69) in the nightcap.

Long Island 18, Gastonia 1

(Central Islip, N.Y., July 28, 2023) – The Long Island Ducks, known on Friday as Papas Playas, their alternate identity, defeated the Gastonia Honey Hunters 18-1 on Friday night in the opener of a three-game series at Fairfield Properties Ballpark.

Papas Playas erupted for seven runs in the second inning off Honey Hunters starter Orlando Rodriguez to take an early lead. RBI singles by Brian Goodwin and Ruben Tejada, an RBI double by Brantley Bell, a sacrifice fly off the bat of Boog Powell and a three-run home run by Alejandro De Aza highlighted the inning. Four more runs came home in the third on Wilson Ramos’ RBI double and Joe DeCarlo’s three-run homer, making it an 11-0 game.

David Washington homered to center off Papas Playas starter Robert Stock in the fourth to put Gastonia on the board. However, a five-run fifth, highlighted by Tejada’s two-run double, Sam Travis’ RBI single and Goodwin’s two-run double made it 16-1 Papas Playas. Back-to-back solo homers by Carlos Castro and Alex Dickerson in the seventh made it 18-1.

Stock (6-2) earned the win, tossing seven innings of one-run ball, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out a career-high 12 batters. Rodriguez (1-1) suffered the loss, surrendering 11 runs on eight hits and three walks in three innings. Justin Courtney pitched two scoreless innings in relief for Papas Playas, walking one and striking out one. 

Dickerson led the Flock offensively with three hits, an RBI and three runs. Tejada and Goodwin each added two hits and three RBIs, while De Aza and DeCarlo each chipped in with a hit, three RBIs, two runs and two walks. 

The teams continue their three-game set on Saturday night. Game time is slated for 6:35 p.m., with the Fairfield Properties Ballpark gates opening at 5:35 (5:20 for full season ticket holders).

Southern Maryland 6, Charleston 4

(Friday, July 28th, Charleston, WV) After sweeping the Lexington Counter Clocks, the Crabs returned for another series with the Charleston Dirty Birds. The Blue Crabs have won four straight and eight of their last ten; a win in this game would allow them to build their largest winning streak this season.  


Returning to the lineup, K.C. Hobson faced Kit Scheetz and bashed his 13th home run of the year to have it fly 406 feet; the Crabs were ahead 2-0. Khalil Lee doubled the lead when he blazed a ball that passed Telvin Nash to the wall, 4-0 was now the score.   


The Charleston Dirty Birds faced Liam O'Sullivan in the bottom of the fourth, scoring two runs from a single and a fielder's choice. After a lengthy rain delay, the two teams returned to action in the top of the sixth, and an error by Clayton Mehlbauer allowed Southern Maryland to buy a run. Crabs led 5-2.  


In the bottom of the seventh inning, Jalen Miller doubled off the center field wall, and the Dirty Birds chipped away with two more runs, and it was a one-run game. With the bases full of Dirty Birds, the Crabs called on Bruce Rondón to end the eighth, which he did a huge whiff.  


Philip Caulfield sent a deep drive into right that deflected off the right field wall for an RBI double, with Hobson sprinting all the way home from first base. The Crabs got some breathing room, but Rondón didn't need it; he set down the Birds for Southern Maryland to get the win.   


Liam O'Sullivan got another win, he is 5-0 as a Blue Crab, and Rondón has three saves in three opportunities. The Blue Crabs are now 43-38 in the year and 12-6 in the second half. The middle matchup is set for 6:35 PM, with the Crabs going with Tony Dibrell.
