Savannah 3, West Virginia 2
Cole Frenzel drove home Kevin Plawecki with the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning to complete a Gnats’ 3-2 comeback victory Sunday afternoon. The victory was Savannah’s sixth straight and pulled the Gnats (15-8) into a tie for first place with the Augusta GreenJackets, who lost to the Lexington Legends.
In a 2-2 game in the ninth, Plawecki was hit by a pitch to start the winning rally. The following batter, C Jeffrey Glenn chopped a ball to third. His bat broke on the swing, and the barrel followed the ball’s path toward West Virginia 3B Eric Wood. The bat hit Wood, who could not make the play to put runners at first and second. Frenzel followed with a line drive single to leftfield that scored Plawecki from second with the winning run.
It was the Gnats’ first win in their final turn at bat in 2013.
Frenzel, who had a hand in every Gnats’ run finished 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a run scored.
