Rice earns first Major League win
As it turns out, we could only make it a couple of posts without a Scott Rice mention. Another milestone for the former Revs, now New York Mets lefty on Sunday afternoon, as he earned his first big league win in the Mets’ 4-3 walk-off triumph over the Miami Marlins at Citi Field. With the win, Rice joins Shawn Hill as the only two pitchers in Revs history to go on and earn a win in The Show after their time in York.
Rice has really gained some national attention as the 31-year-old rookie, with his appearance on MLB Network’s Intentional Talk last week, and certainly his success on the mound doesn’t hurt either (through 4 games: 1-0, 2.70 ERA, 3.1 IP, 1 run).
Regarding the 2013 Revs, the players have been arriving this weekend, so York won’t be the same until October (that’s a good thing). Physicals today, spring training this week, and fans will get their first glimpse of this year’s team next Saturday in the Fan Fest exhibition game against the Atlantic League Alumni All-Stars at 2 p.m.
