The Bees: Last night, Brian Dupra struggled in his start, allowing 7 runs, all of them earned, in less than one full inning. The bullpen took over, combining for 7 1/3 innings of relief, striking out 8 batters, allowing 6 total runs. New Britain scored their first 3 runs in the 5th inning with a 2 RBI single by Jordan Hinshaw followed by an RBI knock from Jovan Rosa. Their 4th and final run came in the 8th, when Jake McGuiggan brought home Craig Maddox with a sacrifice fly.
The Opposition: All of York’s offense yesterday came in the first 4 frames, with 3 of them being multiple run innings. 12 batters came to the plate in the 1st, scoring 7 runs, 1 more would come across in the 2nd, 3 more in the 3rd, and then another pair in the 4th for a grand total of 13. Telvin Nash and Isaias Tejeda each homered in the 1st inning. Each player in the York starting lineup except Alonzo Harris scored at least once, and each player drove in at least 1 run.
Starting Pitchers – New Britain: LHP Nick Greenwood (1-4, 5.40) | York: LHP Logan Williamson (5-8, 5.10)
Key to the Game – Nix Nash, restrain Tejeda: Both Telvin Nash and Isaias Tejeda have been thorns in New Britain’s side during this series. Nash has gone 6-13 with 2 doubles, 2 homers and 4 RBI, while Tejeda has hit 4-11 with 2 homers, 4 RBI and has scored 4 runs. In order to stop York’s offensive momentum, Nick Greenwood and the Bees pitching staff will need to keep those two players off the bases, as the Revolution offense has revolved around them for much of this series.
