YORK, Pa.– The Newark Bears blasted the York Revolution 9-6 in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at Sovereign Bank Stadium in York, Pennsylvania.
Brian Barton continued his hot series as he put the Bears on the scoreboard in the visitor’s first against Derell McCall. After a walk and a single put a pair on base, Barton ripped his sixth homer of the season, a three-run blast over the hitter’s eye in center, and Newark was up 3-0. Elijah Dukes, who finished his day 3-for-4, took the first pitch he saw in the second over the “Arch Nemesis” in left and the lead quickly grew to four runs. Barton came through again with two on as he put a two-run double into right centerfield to make it a three-run inning. Pablo Ozuna added to the advantage with a solo shot in the fourth and it was 7-0.
Ryan Glynn made his first start for Newark and impressed as he surrendered just two hits through his first two innings and set down seven straight at one point. York reached Glynn in the home fourth as Ramon Castro tripled and Jose Herrera plated him with a RBI single through the left side to break the shutout.
The Revolution added a run in the sixth against reliever Derek Blacksher, who made his first appearance since opening day. Liu Rodriguez plated a run with a RBI single, but Carl Everett answered back for Newark with a solo shot deep to right in the visitor’s seventh. In the home half of the frame, York pulled within four runs on Herrera’s second RBI single and a Stephen Haake sacrifice fly to plate a run.
The Bears added an insurance run in the ninth as Daryle Ward brought home Barton, who started the frame with a single and stolen base, to make it 9-4. York tried to rally as Haake put a two-run shot over wall in right, but could draw no closer.
Glynn (2-0) got the win and secured the Bears’ first season series “W” since May 5th, scattering six hits and allowing just a run, with four strikeouts and walk over five innings. McCall (6-3) lasted just three and two-third innings, allowing seven runs on nine hit, with two strikeouts and three walks in the loss.
Newark continues the road trip and heads to Central Islip to take on the Long Island Ducks in a three-game series beginning Monday night. Game time is set for 7:05 p.m. at Suffolk County Sports Park.
