'Sharks Look Better In Makeup Than Revs

Brandon Haveman tied the game with a two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning, but the Camden Riversharks had the last laugh with a 5-4 win in 12 innings over the York Revolution in front of 4,152 fans at Sovereign Bank Stadium on Thursday evening, thanks to a two-out single in the top of the 12th by Pedro Feliz.

York spent most of its night battling back after Camden scored three unearned runs in the fourth on a Steve Doetsch opposite field home run to right-center, putting the Revs in a 4-1 hole.

After squandering a first-and-third, no-out opportunity in their half of the fourth, the Revs did plate runs in the fifth on an RBI single off the Arch Nemesis by Liu Rodriguez, and in the sixth on a Michael Hernandez sacrifice fly to center.

Down a run in the bottom of the ninth, pinch-hitter Travis Scott singled up the middle with one out, extending his hitting streak to seven consecutive games.  He then moved to second on a wild pitch, and scored the game-tying run on Haveman’s two-out single up the middle.

Revs starter Ryan Feierabend lasted 7.1 innings, allowing Camden’s first four runs, but only one of which was earned.  The lefty allowed nothing after the Doetsch home run, and York’s bullpen retired the first 11 batters it faced before Doetsch singled with one out in the 12th.  After the base hit, Doetsch stole second, and scored the decisive run on Feliz’ two-out single against reliever Ricardo Gomez (4-1).

York managed only one hit as a team in extra innings, as Camden’s bullpen rebounded after closer John Lujan allowed the tying run in the ninth.  Former Revs lefty James Houser (3-0) picked up the win with a perfect 11th.

Camden scored a first inning run on a two-out RBI double off the Arch Nemesis by Eduardo Perez.
York tied the game at 1-1 in the third when Rodriguez singled to right field with the bases loaded, but the Revs were denied the lead when Joe Thurston lined back to the mound for an inning-ending double play.
