Savannah scored three times in the final two innings to lift them past Rome 5-2. The Gnats have won five straight and are now a season high 14 games over .500 (45-31) on the year.
Aderlin Rodriguez was 2-4, but remains homer less in June (.264/.303/.330)
Yohan Almonte- 7 IP, 3 hits, 2 er, 1 bb, 3 k, 2 HR (10 groundball outs/ 5 fly outs). Almonte is a good organizational pitcher, but lacks pure stuff to be a factor.
Hamilton Bennett, who has taken over the team's closer role after the Josh Egdin promotion, picked up his 7th save with a scoreless ninth.
Since Egdin's promotion Bennett has been stellar: 4 saves, 6 IP, 1 hit, 0 runs, 1 bb, 5 k.
