Rainy Lara Absolutely Masterful With Eight Scoreless In 6-0 Win


Savannah 6, Augusta 0

If you like a good pitcher’s duel, you might have found yourself in heaven if you could have watched this Savannah game. Rainy Lara was absolutely incredible in his performance over eight innings where he allowed no runs, two hits, and a walk. He struck out nine in perhaps the best pitching performance of his career. Currently, his ERA stands at 1.17, his opposing average is .192, and his BB:K ratio is 5:47 in 46.0 innings pitched.

I would assume he makes the jump to Binghamton extremely soon because he is absolutely dominating the SAL league right now. The Sand Gnats were unable to score a run until the 11th inning of this game, where they dropped a six-spot to confuse everyone watching. Two walks, two hits, and two errors in the wild inning combined for six runs, which was too much for Augusta to surmount in one frame, leading to their defeat.

Bret Mitchell and Beck Wheeler combined to finish the game for Savannah, with Mitchell vulturing the win from Lara after tossing two scoreless frames.
