On Sunday, the final game of the four game series between the Savannah Sand Gnats and the Charleston RiverDogs at Grayson Stadium, was suspended due to heavy rains and lighting with the RiverDogs leading 8-3 in the top of the sixth inning. The game will be resumed on April 23 in Charleston.

Savannah scored two runs in the bottom of the 2nd inning to take an early 2-0 lead. Stefan Sabol walked, and after a wild pitch moved him to second, and a Tomas Nido single moved him to third, Sabol scored on a Wuilmer Becerra RBI single. With two outs, Nido scores on a throwing error by RiverDogs Alvaro Noriega, on a pickoff attempt.

Charleston answered back with a run in the top of the 3rd inning, when Brandon Thomas, who walked to lead-off the inning, scored on a ground out by Abiatal Avelino.

In the 5th inning, Savannah scored a run to extend their lead to 3-1, when Jonathan Johnson doubled and then scored on a John Mora single.

The RiverDogs scored seven more runs in the top of the 6th to lead an 8-3 lead before the rains came to stop the game. Charleston scored all their runs on two doubles, two singles and three bases loaded walks.

Whats Next for the Sand Gnats:

Savannah plays a three game series with the Rome Braves starting at 7:05 pm Monday at Grayson Stadium.
