YORK PA.—Southern Maryland jumped out to an early 3-0 lead but failed to scratch out any runs as the Blue Crabs fell to York by the final of 4-3.
The Blue Crabs scored three runs in the top of the third. Eric Garcia came to the plate with a runner on base, and ripped a double to score Marte. The next two hitters Gary Brown and Bryant Nelson attempted to drop down sacrifice bunts and both times an error was committed by the first baseman Kevin Rivers allowing a pair of runs to score to make it 3-0.
That was all of the scoring for Southern Maryland on the night as York went on to score two runs in the bottom of the third on the two run single by Jared Mitchell.
In the bottom of the seventh, York tied the game when Isaias Tejada smashed a solo homerun over the wall in left. A few batters later with runners at second and third, and RHP Justin Berg out of the bullpen for Southern Maryland, Josh Wilson lofted a fly ball to left allowing Michael Rockett to score on the sacrifice fly to give York the first lead of the game.
RHP Mike DeMark picked up the save in the 9th to secure the victory for the Revolution. With the loss, the Blue Crabs sit 4.5 games out of first place in the Freedom Division. The third game of the series will take place tomorrow night in York. The first pitch is set for 6:35 P.M.
