Darin Gorski moves to 9-0 on the season with probably his worst outing of the season (6 IP, 7 hits, 4 er, bb, 6 k, 2 HR).
Cory Vaughn (1-3, HR (3), 3RBI, HBP) hit a 3-run homerun in the top of the sixth to give St. Lucie a 5-4 lead. In 17 games for St. Lucie, Vaughn is hitting .333/.433/.561 and a 5bb/9K ratio.
Vaughn only hit 4 homeruns in 68 games (245 AB) for Savannah. Is this just a hot 2 1/2 weeks or did Historic Grayson Stadium zap Vaughn of his power?
Josh Egdin picked up his 3rd save, allowing a run on two hits in the ninth.
