Revolution Rock Sharks

York's Shaun Garceau pitched 8 1/3 strong innings, giving up 6 hits and striking out 5 in the Revs 4-1 victory tonight over the Riversharks. Garceau retired the first 7 batters he faced on his way to his 3rd win of the season.

York got on the board first, in a sloppy, error filled 3rd. Sharks starter Federico Baez plunked Revs catcher Octavio Martinez. Former Rivershark Chris Walker singled Martinez in after two throwing errors by the Sharks defense. Carlos Guzman singled, and Walker advanced to 3rd after Baez uncorked a wild pitch. A Ramon Castro sac fly to center scored Walker, and one batter later, a James Shanks single scored Castro to make it 3-0 Revs.

The Revs added one more in the 8th when first baseman Chris Nowak launched a Mumba Rivera fastball over the Wawa sign in left.

The Sharks offense just couldn't get going, and despite threatening in the bottom of the 9th when a Brian Burgamy double scored Noah Hall, Revs reliever Ricardo Gomez retired the next two batters to seal the victory.
