The Savannah Sand Gnats played a memorable game last night. The Gnats pounded the Augusta GreenJackets' pitching for 18 runs while giving up only three. Josh Satin led the Gnats' hitters. He reached first base five times, four times on singles and once on a walk. Five other Gnats had multi-hit games; the only Gnat position player not getting a hit was first baseman Eric Campbell.
The Gnats' run-scoring was far more than starter Robert Carson needed. In six innings, the lefty held the GreenJackets scoreless, surrendering only one hit and one walk.
Satin can hit. Last season, his first in pro ball, he had an OPS of .873. Carson also did well. In 2008, in 53.2 innings his ERA was only 1.68.
Here are two reasons why the NY Mets lost today to the Brewers:
