Gastonia 6, York 4

(May 12, 2024 – York, Pa.): The York Revolution suffered their first series loss of 2024 on Sunday, as they fell short in their rubber match against Gastonia Baseball Club by a 6-4 score at WellSpan Park on Mother’s Day afternoon.

The Club opened the scoring in the second inning. After Jake Gatewood walked to lead off the frame, catcher Patrick Mazeika launched a two-run blast to right field off of Revs starter Zach Neff.

It did not take York long to answer in the bottom half of the second. Colton Welker was hit by a pitch with one out and scored on a Paxton Wallace double to right field which deflected off of right fielder Eric De La Rosa’s glove as he leapt in front of the wall. Wallace scored one batter later when Rudy Martin Jr knocked a game-tying single to left field to square things at 2-2.

The teams remained locked at two until the fifth inning. Mazeika doubled with one out and scored two batters later on a fielder’s choice to break the tie. Jake Hoover capped off the three-run rally with a two-run double to left. All three runs in the inning were unearned against Neff after two consecutive York errors earlier in the inning.

York started to rally in the bottom of the fifth and had runners on the corners with one out before a 57-minute rain delay halted play. When it resumed, David Washington plated a pair on a base hit up the middle to bring the Revs back within one at 5-4. Washington has now driven in runs seven of his eight games played with York, having totaled 10 RBI on that stretch.

Gatewood greeted reliever Alex Valverde with a solo shot to left field to start the sixth inning as Gastonia pulled back ahead by two, and that ended up being all Gastonia needed in the end.

York had one final threat in the sixth inning, stringing together back-to-back two-out baserunners. Matt McDermott ripped a base hit to left, but Martin Jr was cut down at the plate on a strong throw by left fielder Dean Miller to end the inning.

Gastonia’s bullpen did not allow a run across the final four frames as Trent Fennell, Gabe Klobosits, Bryan Blanton, and Phoenix Sanders combined to blank the Revs and clinch the series win.

York’s homestand continues on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. when the Long Island Ducks come to town for the first time this season. Lefty Will Stewart will go for York and will be opposed by Stephen Woods Jr. It is Adoption & Foster Care Awareness Night, WellSpan Sports Medicine Silver Sluggers Tuesday, and Academic All-Stars. Tickets are on sale at, (717) 801-HITS, and in-person at the Shipley Energy Ticket Office.

Notes: Washington has hit safely in all eight games with York. York had won each of its previous three series after splitting the season’s opening series; the Revs are now 3-1-1 in their five series to begin the season. York’s 9-6 record is still tied for a franchise-best 15-game start (2011, 2016). York and Gastonia finish the season series against one another with a 3-3 head-to-head record. Martin Jr went 3-for-4 with three stolen bases and is now tied for the league lead with 10


Hagerstown 15, Long Island 11

(Central Islip, N.Y., May 12, 2024) – The Long Island Ducks were defeated by the Hagerstown Flying Boxcars 15-11 on Sunday afternoon in the finale of a three-game series at Fairfield Properties Ballpark.

The Ducks took an immediate 3-0 lead in the first inning on Frank Schwindel’s three-run home run to left field off Flying Boxcars starter Parker Markel. Hagerstown responded in the second with solo homers by Curtis Terry and Osvaldo Abreu in the second off Ducks starter Mike Montgomery, closing the gap to one. A sacrifice fly to center field off the bat of Eury Perez in the third tied the game at three.

Long Island immediately went back in front by three in the bottom of the third, as Rixon Wingrove (two-run) and Tyler Dearden (solo) launched back-to-back home runs to right-center field. However, a seven-run fourth inning, highlighted by RBI singles from Abreu and Terry along with a two-run single by Perez, put the Flying Boxcars ahead 10-6. Perez added a two-run double in the sixth to make it a six-run ballgame.

A five-run eighth inning, all with two men out, brought the Ducks to within a run. Schwindel’s solo homer to left, Dearden’s single to right and Aaron Antonini’s three-run homer to right highlighted the inning, but they could not pull even. Three unearned runs in the ninth for Hagerstown rounded out the scoring.

Neither starter factored into the decision. Montgomery lasted three innings, giving up three runs on three hits with one strikeout. Markel pitched four innings, conceding six runs on five hits and three walks with one strikeout. Rafael Kelley (1-1) picked up the win after tossing a scoreless fifth inning, working around three hits and striking out one. Bobby Vath (0-1) suffered the loss, surrendering four runs (three earned) on four hits and three walks over three and one-third innings with two strikeouts.

Dearden led the Ducks offense with three hits, two RBIs and two runs. Schwindel added a pair of homers and drove in four runs. Antonini had two hits, three RBIs and a run, while Wingrove chipped in with two hits, two RBIs and two runs.

High Point 9, Southern Maryland 2

HIGH POINT, N.C. – The High Point Rockers pounded out 14 hits in posting a 9-2 win over Southern Maryland in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at Truist Point. The Rockers won the series by a 2-1 count.

Former North Carolina All-American Colin Moran had his best day as a Rocker since joining the club earlier in the week. Moran had four hits, two doubles and scored a pair of runs while driving in one to lead High Point’s offensive charge.

Southern Maryland took an early 1-0 lead when lead-off hitter Anthony Ray started the game with a home run off High Point starter Jonah Scolaro. The lead grew to 2-0 in the fourth when Josh Broughton hit a two-out double and scored on a double by Aaron Hill.

But High Point scored the next nine runs in the game, starting with a three-run outburst in the fourth. After Ben Aklinski drew a walk and moved to third on a double by Moran, Zander Wiel plated one run with a sac fly and Ryan Grotjohn doubled home the second run before scoring on an RBI single by Wesleyan Christian Academy Gregory White.

The Rockers added four runs in the fifth to take a 7-2 lead on a three-run homer by Aklinski and an RBI single from Grotjohn. Moran doubled home Aklinski with the eighth run in the sixth and Connor Owings singled to score Grotjohn in the eighth to complete the scoring.

Scolaro went 4.1 innings and allowed four hits and three walks while striking out three. Neil Ramirez (W, 1-0) came on in the fifth and faced seven batters, issuing a walk and striking out five to earn the win. Austin Ross, David McKay and Garrett Schilling each threw scoreless innings to finish up for the Rockers.

Southern Maryland starter Ian Kahaloa (L, 1-2), allowed seven runs on seven hits in his 4.1 innings of work while walking four and striking out five.

The Rockers will have Monday off and then start the string of six straight home games. High Point hosts the Lexington Legends for three games starting on Tuesday. Wednesday’s game will be a special 11:05 am start for Education Day at Truist Point.

NOTES: Scolaro was signed by the Rockers on Sunday to fill the slot in the starting rotation previously held by Peter Solomon whose contract was purchased by the Texas Rangers on Thursday… Scolaro was with the Rockers briefly in 2022 before his contract was purchased by the Chicago White Sox.
