Teams Combine For 23 Runs And 30 Hits
(York, PA – July 27, 2019) – The New Britain Bees (6-9, 41-43) defeated the York Revolution (10-5, 44-40) 13-10 at PEOPLESBank Park on Saturday evening to even up the three-game weekend series at a victory apiece in a nine-inning affair that lasted four hours and six minutes and saw a total of 445 combined pitches between the two ballclubs.
New Britain starting pitcher David Roseboom registered a no-decision in the matchup after allowing an unearned run on four hits in two innings on the mound, striking out three. York starting pitcher Ian Thomas (3-2) suffered the loss, surrendering nine runs on five hits (one home run) in just two and two-thirds innings pitched, walking six and striking out two. Jim Fuller tallied six outs to notch his team-best 11th save of the season.
New Britain jumped out in front 2-1 in the top half of the second inning versus Thomas by way of a two-run home run to the opposite-field in left center off the bat of Jared James as his third roundtriper of the year extended his hitting streak to a season-high nine consecutive games overall. The Bees sent 12 men to the plate in the third, scoring seven runs in the process to take a commanding 9-1 lead, highlighted by a walk with the bases loaded issued to Jason Rogers, a run-scoring base knock produced by Bijan Rademacher, a two-run single from Darren Ford, and an RBI base hit by Zach Collier. The visitors added three big insurance runs in the fifth, doubling their lead to 12-6 thanks to a three-run home run over the Arch Nemesis in left field courtesy of 2019 Liberty Division All-Star Jonathan Galvez, the 13th big fly for the second-year member of the Bees, tops on the roster. The boys from the Hardware City added one more in the sixth for a 13-8 cushion with Galvez doing the honors once again, this time plating Rando Moreno with a clean single, his fourth rib-eye steak of the night as he would finish the matchup off with his team-high 31st multi-hit game and 13th multi-RBI contest, with three being of the four run batted in variety in 2019. Galvez also led the team with four hits on the night, the second time he has accomplished such a feat on the campaign. Photo provided courtesy of Joe Doll.
