Farnsy's Miscue Lets York Jump The 'Sharks

Brandon Haveman hit a three run, bases clearing double in the seventh inning off 'Sharks reliever Jeff Farnsworth, and the Revolution held on to win 4-2 tonight at Sovereign Bank Stadium.

In five innings of work, Camden starter Bryan Corey held the Revs to just one (unearned) run on five hits while striking out six. But all the Riversharks offense could muster in response was two runs in the first inning, when Brian Burgamy's RBI single scored Chris Walker and Lloyd Turner.

Haveman got one run back for York in the bottom of the frame when he scored after Chris Nowak hit into a fielder's choice.

Steve Doetsch lead off the second with a triple, but was left stranded after a groundout from Turner, and strikeouts from Burgamy and Scott Knazek.

The Revs bullpen came through in a big way in relief of starter Jesus Sanchez, who exited after just an inning and two thirds. Lefty Yunior Novoa recorded five strikeouts in his three innings of relief. R.J. Rodriguez notched his 7th save of 2012, retiring the 'Sharks in order in the ninth.

Jake Eigsti's hitting woes continued as he went 0 for 4 at the dish tonight. In his last ten games, Eigsti is 6 for 38, for a miserable .157 batting average.
