Stephen Penney becomes all-time Revolution appearances leader

Penney, Stephen 9

Stephen Penney has made many, many more relief appearances for the Revolution than what he’s indicating here. And he’s now the all-time franchise leader in games pitched for starters or relievers.

When Stephen Penney pitched the eighth inning of an 8-7, 13-inning loss to Sugar Land at home on June 6, it was his 182nd regular season appearance with the York Revolution, in his fourth season with the club.  That number is the most by a pitcher in franchise history, as Penney passes Corey Thurman who made 180 starts and one relief appearance.

Penney, 28, who as of June 6 sported a miniscule 1.05 ERA in 18 games and 17 innings this season, has just a 2.81 career ERA in 173.2 innings pitched with York since 2012.  His strikeout to walk ratio during his Revolution career is nearly 4:1 (319 K, 84 BB).

An expanded and updated list of all-time Revolution appearance leaders is after the jump:

Stephen Penney (2012-15), 182
Corey Thurman (2008-15), 181
R.J. Rodriguez (2010-12), 145
Sean Stidfole (2010-11), 128
Jason Olson (2007-09), 108
Rommie Lewis (2013-15), 99
Travis Phelps (2008-09), 90
Chris Cody (2011-14), 86

Yunior Novoa (2012-13), 81
