Lugo Fires Six Shutout Innings As Sand Gnats Even Series, 6-2
Savannah 6, Hagerstown 2
The Savannah Sand Gnats banged out six runs to take down Hagerstown, 6-2, and evened up the series at a game apiece. The best-of-5 series will now lead Savannah home, where they will basically play a best-of-3 with Hagerstown on their home field. Savannah’s big guns, Steven Matz and Gabriel Ynoa, should both be available to start any two of those games.
Jacob Lugo, better known as Seth Lugo, was on the mound today for Savannah and he impressed with a strong showing. He was nailed by a liner in the second inning and yet went on to retire 12 of the last 15 batters he faced to bookmark six shutout innings. He struck out seven batters.
In the meantime, Jeff Glenn was a force on offense, finishing the game with three hits, two of them doubles, and three RBI.
Savannah will take tomorrow off to make the move back home, so the series will resume on Thursday evening.
