Some Saturday shutout facts…Waters to make first start
Hope you die-hard fans are enjoying your weekend away from Sovereign Bank Stadium. If that’s even possible. There’s a World Series preview happening in Washington between the Yankees and Nationals to tide you over until the team returns on Monday. Yeah, I said it.
As the Revolution play in Somerset this weekend, here we are on Saturday, and the Revs haven’t allowed a run since the 7th inning on TUESDAY at home against Southern Maryland. The 29-inning scoreless streak is a franchise record and counting, and the three consecutive shutouts are also a franchise first, 10-0 vs. Southern Maryland on Wednesday, and the back-to-back 1-0 blankings of Somerset the last two nights. The lone run in each game was driven in by Ramon Castro, and last night his solo home run in the top of the ninth was the game winner.
With Friday’s win, the Revolution climbed over .500 at 24-23 for the first time since opening day at Sugar Land, when they were 1-0.
How long will this amazing scoreless streak last? It was announced this morning that former Oriole Chris Waters will make his first start and debut for York this evening at Somerset. So much for the thought that he’d need a couple bullpen outings before he started. We’ll see how deep into the game he can go.
