August 21, 2012 - Atlantic League (AtL) - York Revolution

News Release

In a game where each starting pitcher tossed a complete game, the York Revolution were on the winning end of a 2-1 score in the front half of Tuesday's doubleheader at Sovereign Bank Stadium.

Lefty Ryan Feierabend out-dueled former Rev Bob Zimmermann for Long Island, improving to 6-3 in the Atlantic League this season. The tough-luck loss dropped Zimmermann to 5-8.

Zimmermann was in command for the most part, aside from the second inning where York scored their only runs. The Revolution stroked three consecutive doubles with two out - Chris Nowak started the barrage, and was driven in by Jeff Fiorentino, as each player went to left. Liu Rodriguez then smoked a two-bagger to the right field corner on a line to score Fiorentino.

York would make the lead stand up for Feierabend, who allowed his only run in the fourth on a Ray Navarrete RBI single. In victory, Feierabend allowed just four hits without a walk, striking out four. The lone run was earned.

Zimmermann scattered eight hits, and kept the game close by wiggling out of a jam in the third inning, stranding the bases loaded. He walked three and struck out one.

Winners of four in a row at the time, the victory put York a season-high six games over .500, at 56-50 overall.
