(July 4, 2019 – Waldorf, Md.): Thursday’s scheduled series finale between the York Revolution and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs was postponed due to rain at Regency Furniture Stadium. A makeup date for the Independence Day clash has yet to be announced.
The Revs still managed to pick up ground in the Freedom Division first half race thanks to Sugar Land’s 3-1 loss at Long Island. The Revs are just 1.0 game back in the standings with four remaining on York’s first half schedule (three at Lancaster this weekend and the makeup game at Southern Maryland). Sugar Land has two first half games remaining (at New Britain).
Heavy rains drenched the area causing a rain delay of one hour and 59 minutes before getting started. Daryl Thompson threw the game’s first pitch at 8:34 p.m. inducing a fly ball to right. Rain had begun again during the final moments of pregame warmups, and as the rain intensified into an outright downpour, the game was officially called after one pitch.
The Revs have a seven-game winning streak including a four-game road winning streak intact, both one shy of franchise records which they will look to match on Friday in Lancaster. The Revs, who trailed in the division standings by as many as 13.0 games as recently as June 11, will look to continue their incredible climb as Mitch Atkins (4-4, 2.98) faces Jared Lakind (3-2, 5.40) in the series opener at 7 p.m. Revs fans can catch the action live on SportsRadio 98.9 FM & 1350 WOYK, 989woyk.com, The New WOYK app, and WOYK on YouTube beginning at 6:50 p.m. with Darrell Henry and Brett Pietrzak on the call.
