The York Revolution snapped a four-game losing streak, salvaging their series finale with an 8-1 win over the Bridgeport Bluefish on Thursday afternoon at Santander Stadium.

Now back above .500 with a 7-6 record, the Revs will continue their homestand on Friday night when they welcome the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs to town for the first of a three-game series.

The Revs fell behind early when a Prentice Redman sac fly produced an unearned run in the top of the third, but it was all York the rest of the way.

The Revs answered back with four runs in their half of the third, taking control of the contest. Eric Patterson lashed an RBI single to left field, tying the game, and Johan Limonta provided the big hit with a three-run homer to right, giving York a 4-1 lead.

The Revs added to their lead with an RBI double to left by Tim Torres in the sixth, before putting it out of reach with three more in the seventh, scoring single runs on a double to left by Limonta, an error and a single to left by Salvador Paniagua.

On a day where every Revs batter had a hit, Limonta enjoyed the biggest afternoon with four RBIs. Wilson Valdez, Ofilio Castro and Torres each had three-hit games. The Revs tallied a season-high 16 hits, while matching their season-high for runs scored. Castro also extended his hitting streak to seven consecutive games, now 13-for-28 (.464) on the streak.

On the other side, York starter Mike McClendon (2-1) allowed just an unearned run in five innings to pick up the win. Four York relievers followed with scoreless innings. The Bluefish were held to three total hits, none after the third inning.


York's Corey Thurman (0-0, 5.78) will face Southern Maryland lefty Ryan Hinson (0-0, 1.35) in Friday's series opener at 6:30 p.m. It is YMCA Swim Night featuring an appearance by Olympic Gold Medalist Cullen Jones.
