York is no longer undefeated.
In game that started late and ended early because of rain, the Revolution fell to the visiting Lancaster Barnstormers on Tuesday night, 9-2, at Santander Stadium.
The game started around 7:45 p.m., more than an hour after the originally scheduled first pitch of 6:30 p.m. And Lancaster (3-2) went to work early, with the first nine batters getting a hit. The Barnstormers tallied seven runs in the first inning.
Revs' starting pitcher Mike McClendon (0-1) got tagged for one more run in the second inning before being pulled at the end of the frame. He gave up the eight runs on 12 hits with no walks or strikeouts.
The game ended after just six innings, with rain coming down hard in the last couple innings before umpires finally called it around 10:15 p.m. The Revs (4-1) got two runs back, scoring a run each in the first and third innings. A Chad Tracy sacrifice fly scored Sean Smith (2-for-3, run scored) in the first inning and a Johan Limonta RBI single plated Wilson Valdez (2-for-3, run scored) in the third inning.
Smith, Valdez and catcher Salvador Paniagua each went 2-for-3 in the game and are now each 6-for-14 on the year and have the team lead in batting average (.429).
Revs' reliever Beau Vaughan tossed three scoreless innings, giving up a hit and striking out two. Edward Paredes gave up a run on two hits in one inning of relief for York.
The Revs and Lancaster are scheduled for a 7 p.m. start Wednesday in York, but the forecast doesn't look promising. The pre-game celebrity softball game involving a pair of NASCAR drivers that was scheduled for Wednesday has already been canceled because of the expected rain. Following Wednesday, York will leave for a five-game road trip beginning Thursday in Lancaster and ending Sunday in Long Island.
Revs' right-hander Jorge Martinez (0-0, 13,50 ERA) is slated to face Lancaster righty Chris Schwinden (1-0, 0.00) in Wednesday's matchup.
