Sand Gnats get 2nd straight shut out vs. Legends

Darin Gorski and two relievers combined to blank Lexington on four hits, and Savannah recorded its second straight shutout with a 3-0 victory over the Legends on Monday night at Applebee's Park

Gorski, a left-hander, pitched 62⁄3 innings and allowed three hits and two walks. He had four strikeouts.

Guillaume Le Duc worked through the eighth, and Marcos Tabata picked up his first save with a perfect ninth inning.

Savannah scored a run in the top of the first inning. Alonzo Harris led off with a single. He went to second on an errant pickoff attempt by Lexington starter Juan Minaya and scored on a single to right field by Cesar Puello.

The 1-0 lead stood until the eighth inning, when the Sand Gnats added two more runs. Puello who got his 37th stolen base of the season, scored on a passed ball. R.J. Harris came home on a double by Juan Torres.

Minaya (4-10), who allowed one unearned run and three hits through six innings, took the loss.
