MINERS REACQUIRE RUBI SILVA

SILVA RETURNS TO SUSSEX COUNTY AFTER STINT WITH REVOLUTION

Augusta, NJ – Offensive star Rubi Silva is headed back to the Sussex County Miners. Silva was reacquired to complete an earlier trade with the York Revolution.

During the final week of the 2017 regular season, Silva was acquired by York and helped the team win the Atlantic Conference Championship. Silva batted .452 (14-for-31) in seven playoff games and led all playoff hitters with a Revolution playoff-record seven runs, 14 hits, 19 total bases, three doubles, one triple, and four extra-base hits. He notched five multi-hit games during the postseason, including a 4-for-4 performance in the championship clincher, punctuated by an eighth inning leadoff bunt single that set up Telvin Nash’s championship-winning two-run home run.

In his 2017 tenure with the Miners, Silva hit .305 and led the team in games played (98), runs scored (53), hits (119), triples (7), and RBI (57). Silva made an immediate impact in his return to Sussex County. In yesterday’s doubleheader against the Rockland Boulders, Silva was a combined 4-for-7 with two runs scored and four RBI, courtesy of a three-run blast in the top of the seventh of game two.
