RedWolves drop rain shortened contest

RedWolves drop rain shortened contest

Jimmy Farmer

 

The Florence RedWolves fell to the Savannah Bananas 4-1 in six innings on Thursday night at Grayson Stadium.

 

The Bananas came out of the gate scoring a run in the first and second innings to take a quick 2-0 lead on the RedWolves as the rain began to fall in Savannah.

 

The RedWolves would answer in the top of fourth when Joe Simone (Rider) singled home McLendon Sears (College of Charleston) to make it 2-1. 

 

That is all the closer the RedWolves would get however as Savannah would tack on two in the bottom of the fifth. 

 

After the sixth inning ended, the rain became heavier and lightening in the area forced play to be stopped for the second time in as many innings. After a significant delay and puddles beginning to form in the outfield, the umpires called the game after six innings. 

 

Johnathan Hughes (Georgia Tech) would take the loss for the RedWolves after going five innings allowing four runs (two earned) on just one hit while walking four and striking out two. 

 

The RedWolves (17-19) will stay overnight in Georgia before heading to Macon on Friday to take on the Bacon. 

 

The RedWolves will return home on Saturday for Cancer Awareness Night against the Wilmington Sharks.
