Pina came through again for the Sand Gnats in the top of the [...]
Savannah 9, Hickory 2 Kevin Plawecki is an absolute monster and Rainy Lara pitched an excellent game. Should I go on?

He allowed merely an unearned run over seven spectacular innings, where he allowed just four hits and struck out six. Eudy Pina botched a play to allow [...]
