York, Pennsylvania – The Somerset Patriots (7-2) used a two-run top of the 10th for the third-straight night top to the York Revolution (4-6) 7-6 Monday evening at PeoplesBank Park.
Somerset regained the lead in the top of the third on a two-out RBI single from Will Kengor. The lead was short-lived, however, as Ryan Dent (2) and Henry Castillo (1) went back-to-back with solo home runs in the home third to jump in front 3-2.
A two-out RBI single from Kengor in the top of the fifth tied up the ballgame at 3-3 before the Patriots regained the lead again in the sixth. Steve Nyisztor dropped down an RBI safety squeeze sacrifice bunt to grab the lead, with Craig Massey adding a two-out RBI double later in the frame.
York tied up the ballgame again in the bottom of the seventh on a two-run home run from Castillo (2). Zech Zinicola followed with two scoreless innings of relief to bridge the gap into extra innings.
Somerset quickly regained the lead in extras when Ramon Flores scored from second base on a Kengor single and a Welington Dotel throwing error. An RBI double from Michael Ohlman later in the inning provided the Patriots with a two-run advantage.
The Revs got a run back in the bottom of the 10th inning on a two-out, RBI double from Isaias Tejeda, but Somerset closer Mike Antonini struck out the side to hold on for the thrilling win.
Zinicola (1-1) earned his first save of the year with a strong relief performance. Josh Judy (2-1) allowed two runs (one earned) in his one inning of relief to take the loss. Antonioni (4) earned the save with three strikeouts in the10th.
