The York Revolution suffered a tough, late-night loss to the host Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, 11-10, late Sunday night in contest that was delayed by rain and plenty of pitching changes.

The Revs fell to 2-4 in the second half of the Atlantic League season.

The league is now in its four-day all-star break. The all-star game is on Wednesday, and the season's second half will start on Friday.

It was the Blue Crabs' second straight walk-off win against the Revs and allowed Southern Maryland (5-1) to sweep the weekend series.

Southern Maryland fell 1-0 behind in the first inning. Then, in the fifth inning, York plated five more runs to seemingly blow the game open.

The Blue Crabs scored twice in the bottom of the fifth to chip away.

Following an 81-minute rain delay, the Blue Crabs' offense erupted, putting up two runs in the sixth on a Chris Maples home run, then batting around to score six runs in the seventh.

The seventh inning was started by Curtis Pride smacking a single up the middle, then Patrick Osborn following suit with a single of his own. Jeremy Owens would then rip a triple to left-center, scoring both men. Three straight walks to James Shanks, Maples and Brandon Ketron would force home Owens, and a single by George Sandel would bring home another run.

John Ramistella was then hit by a pitch to force home another run, giving the home team a four-run lead.

York would not quit, however, as the visitors put up four runs in the top of the ninth to tie the game.

The Blue Crabs, who entered the game 35-0 when leading after nine innings, would keep that streak alive, however.

Ketron was beaned in the head to start off the bottom of the ninth inning, and moved to second on a perfect sacrifice bunt from Sandel.

Ramistella would then single past the shortstop, and Ketron came across for the victory.
