Boyd’s 4 RBI Day Leads Savannah To A 6-4 Victory
Savannah 6, Lakewood 4
Jayce Boyd had a great offensive night and the Sand Gnats received a questionable call from the umpires down in Lakewood en route to a 6-4 victory on Saturday night.
It was Rainy Lara who got the start for Savannah in this one, and he was shaky at best, allowing 11 hits and a walk. This resulted in four earned runs and it could have actually been worse, because the umpires ruled what looked to be a home run, as a ground-rule double. Lara was able to neutralize the threat in the inning and Lakewood ended up with only one run in the frame. Lara pitched into the sixth, lasting 5.1 innings, before he was lifted in favor of Hunter Carnevale with two men on base. Carnevale wrapped up the inning without allowing the runners to score, and Jake Kuebler and Bret Mitchell shut the door down there from there till the end of the game.
As for Savannah’s now high-powered offense, Jayce Boyd was the man of the hour as he torched Lakewood for three hits and four RBI – including two of them with two outs. Boyd actually drove in runs in three different frames, including Brandon Nimmo twice – who tripled and scored two runs in this game. Kevin Plawecki added another double to his stat sheet and continues to merit the nickname “Doubles Machine.”
