REVS FALL IN SUGAR LAND

 
(July 31, 2018) - The York Revolution held an early edge but saw the Sugar Land Skeeters score nine unanswered runs including a five-run seventh, falling 10-3 in front of 4,473 fans at Constellation Field on Tuesday night. The Revs slip to 3.5 games back in the second half division standings, and are now 2-3 on their visit to Sugar Land with two games remaining.
 
The Skeeters grabbed the game's first run in the bottom of the first as Anthony Giansanti reached on a two-out walk, stole two bases, and scored on Courtney Hawkins' single to left.
 
York answered in the top of the second as Luis Cruz ripped a two-out RBI single to left-center, extending his hitting streak to eight consecutive games. The base hit plated Ryan Dent who doubled to left-center earlier in the inning.
 
Melky Mesa crushed a homer down the left field line in the top of the third as York led 2-1 on Mesa's 11th of the season.
 
Sugar Land began a stretch of five consecutive innings with a run, tying the game on a Giansanti sac fly in its half of the third.
 
Derek Norris cracked a two-out RBI double to right-center in the fourth to give the Skeeters the lead. Juan Silverio added an RBI single up the middle in the fifth, and Matt Chavez drove in a run on a double to left-center in the sixth.
 
Sugar Land effectively put the game away with a five-run seventh. York reliever Josh Blanco ran into trouble right away after hitting Javier Betancourt with a pitch to start the inning. Three consecutive walks followed to force in a run. Hawkins brought home another run on a base hit to left. Silverio scored the inning's third run on a wild pitch, while Chavez and Norris provided RBI singles to left off reliever Luke Westphal to make it 10-2.
 
Cruz homered to left on an 0-2 pitch with two outs in the ninth to account for the game's final scoring, capping a 3-for-4 night at the plate as he is now batting .467 (14-for-30) on his eight-game streak.
 
Sugar Land starter James Russell (5-3) picked up the win, limiting the Revs to two runs over six innings.
 
York starter Robert Carson (7-5) suffered the loss, charged with five runs in six innings of work.
 
The Revs will look to even the series on Wednesday as Jonathan Sanchez squares off against Yasutomo Kubo at 8:05 p.m. ET. Revs fans can catch the action live on SportsRadio 1350, woyk1350.com, The New WOYK app, and WOYK 1350 on YouTube beginning at 7:45 p.m. ET with Darrell Henry on the call.
