Savannah Offense Can’t Support Ynoa In 3-2 Loss
Lakewood 3, Savannah 2
The Savannah offense was only able to muster five hits and two runs to back up Gabriel Ynoa – who did not pitch all that bad.
Ynoa toed the rubber for Savannah on Thursday evening and pitched a solid game, allowing three earned runs over six innings off five hits and two walks. He struck out two and looked a little more comfortable than he did in past starts. A sacrifice fly and a two-out RBI single in the first charged Ynoa with his first two runs, and he was victimized by a wild pitch that led to another sacrifice fly in the fourth inning for his third run allowed. Julian Hilario took over after the sixth, and it was smooth sailing for him, as he provided two perfect innings with four strikeouts.
The only sign of life for the Savannah offense was a Eudy Pina two-run home run with two outs in the fifth, which scored Phillip Evans. The Sand Gnats scattered their hits, including doubles by Yucary De La Cruz and Stefan Sabol, but they could never really muster anything out there. The sizzling hot Brandon Nimmo finally showed his human side with an 0-for-4. You have those nights sometimes. Here’s looking forward to tomorrow…
Yucary De La Cruz: 1-for-4, 1 2B
Stefan Sabol: 1-for-3, 1 2B
Eudy Pina: 1-for-2, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 R, 1 BB
Brandon Nimmo: 0-for-4
Gabriel Ynoa: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 2 BB, 3 ER, 3 K
Julian Hilario: 2.0 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 4 K
