The lead didn’t last long however, as the Revolution responded with three runs in the top of the second inning. Back-to-back singles started the inning, before a sacrifice bunt put two men in scoring position for Varona. Varona came through with a single, scoring both runners, and putting the Revs ahead. After another single moved Varona to third, a fielder’s choice from Alonzo Harris allowed him to cross the plate, putting York ahead 3-1.

The Revs added a pair of runs in the third, stringing together four more hits off Pat McCoy (2-5). A one-out single from Michael Burgess got the rally started, with Luis Cruz following with one of his own. A sacrifice fly scored Burgess, before two batters later a Varona single scored Cruz, opening up a 5-1 lead for York.

Southern Maryland looked to fight back in the fourth, with Wilson and Snyder leading the charge once again. Wilson led-off the inning with a double, advancing to third on a single from Snyder. Two batters later, L.J. Hoes picked up a sacrifice fly, scoring Wilson and cutting the deficit to 5-2.
