Revolution Spoil the Return of Jason Land, as Skeeters Fall to York
The Skeeters had a great start Thursday night, jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but fell 4-3 to the York Revolution. In the first, Sugar Land scored three runs on a Jeff Dominguez double, a Brian Burgamy single and a Travis Scott groundout, but after that outburst in the first inning the Skeeters bats were held quiet. It was the Revolution's offense that heated up, putting up two runs in the fourth and another two runs on the board in the sixth inning, thanks to an RBI single from Wilson Batista that drove in two. Batista also drove in three of the four Revolution runs in the game. The Revolution bullpen then threw three scoreless innings to secure the win.
Up Next : The Skeeters will send out RHP Cesar Carrillo (2-2, 4.07 ERA) in game four of this six-game homestand to face off against Revolution RHP Corey Thurman (4-13, 6.60 ERA). Friday night is "Hispanic Heritage Night" at Constellation Field with a post-game concert sponsored by Bud Light.
