Team Effort: Staten Island pounded 23 hits and 39 total bases at Frederick on 5/30, a league season-high… York’s six homers at Long Island on 6/1 marked the most by a club this season… The Revs 18 runs scored in that game (including a 10-run third inning), tied for the league-high for the year… High Point tied a club record by overcoming a 6-1 deficit in a 10-8 win at Gastonia on 5/30… Every Staten Island starter had at least one hit in a 13-5 win over Frederick on 5/30… Gastonia’s bullpen retired the last 13 High Point hitters it faced on 6/1 and ended the game striking out the final seven hitters… Gastonia managed just three hits but still emerged with a 3-2 win over Lexington on 6/2… Staten Island’s pitching staff struck out 15 Blue Crabs on 6/4.
