Plawecki, Boyd Continue Tearing It Up In 7-2 Savannah Win
Savannah 7, Delmarva 2
The Savannah Sand Gnats completed a three-game sweep of the Delmarva Shorebirds with a 7-2 victory Thursday night at Historic Grayson Stadium. The Gnats outscored the ‘Birds 25-6 over the three games. Dating back to last year, Savannah (12-8) has outscored Delmarva (11-10) 45-8 in the last six games between the teams at Historic Grayson Stadium.
Gnats’ starter Gabriel Ynoa allowed a run in the top of the first and then nothing else in his six and a third innings of work. The 19-year old RHP 12 batters in a row from the third through the seventh innings and 18-of-20 batters. He earned the win to improve to 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA.
Savannah tied the game at 1-1 in the fourth on DH Kevin Plawecki‘s solo homerun to left, his fourth of the year. Plawecki finished 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored.
Boyd’s solo homer in the seventh made it 7-1 Gnats. He came into the day leading the SAL in batting average and on-base percentage and finished Thursday 3-for-4 with a homer, two runs scored and two driven in. In the three games against Delmarva, Boyd was 7-for-10 with two doubles, a homer, and four walks.
