Scott Shaw fired 6 shutout innings for the Mets, and they got him a 1-0 lead after 6, but he came back out for the 7th and failed to retire a batter, allowing a hit (solo shot) and having an error made behind him (Reese Havens’ 20th) in consecutive batters. Josh Stinson came in and the first batter he faced also reached on an error (Hector Pellot’s 15th). Both runs would end up scoring.

SAL A: Savannah 3/5/1, Delmarva 1/6/0

Kyle Allen had yet another very solid outing tonight, giving up just 3 hits and 3 walks in 5.2 innings, but he took a ND as the Gnats bullpen combined to give up a run in the 8th inning to blow Allen’s lead. Rhiner Cruz picked up the win by getting the final 4 outs of the game. Allen, minus a horrific April, is pitching to a 3.03 era in 92 innings in Savannah.

The Gnats offense managed just 5 hits and 3 walks, but that was enough on this night, despite going 1 for 6 with RISP, and leaving 4 on base.
