LHP Jack Leathersich gave up the tie-breaking three-run homerun in the bottom of the eighth. His line: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 HR, 1 HBP. Leathersich’s ERA rose to 4.46 and his WHIP to 1.43 in 36.1 innings in advanced-A.
Perhaps the finest moment of this game was first pitch. It rained for about four hours in Savannah, and the Gnats staff and grounds crew did a really impressive job getting the puddles of standing water off the warning track to set up a first pitch at 8:25 pm.
LHP Jimmy Fuller could not finish the fifth: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K.
C Cam Maron was 2-for-4 to push his season line to .296/.386/.404 in 72 games.
