YORK, PA. -  An eight-run first inning led the York Revolution (25-19, 53-61) to an 11-2 victory over the Somerset Patriots (20-23, 62-51) in Monday’s series-opener at PeoplesBank Park.

The eight-run first inning for the Revolution was highlighted by a Telvin Nash sacrifice fly, Luis Cruz two-out RBI single and two separate two-out, three-run home runs from Dayron Varona (2) and Alonzo Harris (18). 

Somerset responded with a two-out RBI double from Aharon Eggleston in the second, but a two-out RBI single from Varona in the second and an RBI double from Alexi Casilla in the third increased York’s lead to 10-1. A two-out RBI double from Greg Golson in the next half inning brought the Patriots back within eight runs.
