Sand Gnats Commit Four Errors En Route To 4-1 Loss
Rome 4, Savannah 1
The final game of the four game series between the Savannah Sand Gnats and the Rome Braves was played in front of 1,348 fans Sunday afternoon at Grayson Stadium. Rome won the game 4-1 to even the series at 2-2. The Sand Gnats were held to just three hits while committing four errors, effectively giving them more errors than hits on the afternoon.
In the third inning, Rome scored when shortstop Ronald Luna singled and scored on a single by second baseman Levi Hyams. A sacrifice fly later in the inning allowed Hyams to score. In the bottom of the third, Savannah scored their only run on a home run by Stefan Sabol over the left field fence, his second of the season. Leading off the sixth inning for the Braves, Tyler Tewell hit a home run over the right field fence, his second this season. Right fielder Felix Martel tripled and scored when the relay throw hit him and went into the Rome dugout.
Savannah starter Matt Koch (1-2) lasted four innings, allowed two runs, one earned, while he gave up five hits and no walks. He struck out four.
It was a nice attendance on Mother’s Day. Savannah travels to play at Charleston Monday evening.
