(June 7th, 2023 – York, Pa.): The York Revolution saw their franchise record nine-game winning streak come to an end as the Staten Island FerryHawks held off York’s late-game push in a 10-7 decision on Wednesday night at WellSpan Park. While the Revs’ winning streak is snapped, their half-game lead for first place in the North Division remains intact as they’ll go for a fifth consecutive series victory on Thursday evening.

York jumped on top early with a pair of solo home runs as Nellie Rodriguez drove one out to right field leading off the bottom of the second, and Ryan January crushed a 441-foot shot down the right field line later in the inning for an early 2-0 lead.

The FerryHawks went ahead, powered by home runs from eighth-place hitter Luis Castro in consecutive innings, a solo shot in the third, and a two-run long ball to highlight a three-run fourth as Staten Island took a 4-2 lead.

York got one back in the fourth as with two outs and the bases clear, January walked, Trent GIambrone singled, and Tomo Otosaka walked to load the bases for Jacob Rhinesmith who also walked to force in a run, making it a 4-3 game.

Staten Island went off for five runs in the sixth, taking control of the game. Revs starter Nick Raquet had two outs and a runner on when Staten Island strung together three straight hits including back-to-back RBI singles by Ricardo Cespedes and Angel Aguilar. With cleanup hitter Kevin Krause coming up with two aboard, the Revs went to reliever J.T. Hintzen. Krause proceeded to launch a three-run homer clearing the Arch Nemesis in left, swelling the Staten Island lead to 9-3.

Staten Island added one more on a Castro sac fly to right field in the seventh making it 10-3.

York was held silent in the sixth and seventh by the Staten Island bullpen before sparking a comeback bid with two outs in the eighth.

Otosaka hit an infield single, stole second and third, and after Rhinesmith walked, scored as Rivero singled into right field to cut it to 10-5. Drew Mendoza ripped an RBI single into right field to notch his 11th straight game with a hit while chasing reliever Jim Fuller from the game.

Pedro Payano was brought in to face Rodriguez with runners at the corners and the Staten Island lead cut to 10-6.

Trey Martin got good wood on his swing but flied out to deep right field as the inning ended with the bases loaded.

JP Woodward struck out two in a scoreless inning out of the Revs bullpen in the top of the ninth.

The Revs got the first two aboard in the bottom of the ninth on a January single and a walk by Giambrone, but Payano retired the next three to escape with his fourth save.
