Ho hum just another quality performance from Darin Gorski. Seriously folks this is just ridiculous how good Gorksi has been. Gorski allowed just one run over six innings of work lowering his already FSL leading ERA to a microscopic 1.56. I can hear Wally Backman banging his head on his desk right now screaming: "We want Gorski!!"
With the win, Gorski now moves to 8-0 on the season. Over his last 10 starts his ERA is 1.01.
It's to the point that we are going to call another good outing: Gorski being Gorski. Thoughts?
Is Wilmer Flores (2-4, HR (6), 2rbi) starting to heat up?
June- .293/.348/.378, 7 bb, 11k (23 games)
July- .375/.400/.500, bb, k ( 6 games)
Cory Vaughn (2-3, bb, k) also added two hits and is now hitting .368/.467/.605 (5 bb, 6 k) in 12 games for St. Lucie.
Savannah trailed 5-0 going into the bottom of the ninth and rallied for four runs, but Darrell Ceciliani (2-5, 2k) struck out with the tying run stranded at third-base.
Blake Forsythe (1-4, HR (4), 2rbi) hit a two-run home run in the ninth to cut the deficit to 5-2. According to the Gnats press release (by your own Toby Hyde): It was the first home run that the Gnats have hit at home since April 23rd, 33 games ago. The Gnats have hit five home runs in Savannah in 2011 compared to 32 on the road.
I have to say that is a pretty remarkable stat.
Gonzalez German (L, 6-4, 5 IP, 3 hits, 1 er, K) suffered the loss for the Gnats.
