The Sand Gnats lost two games in one day with pretty much a complete lack of offense in either game. In the first game, the Sand Gnats were shutout 5-0. Josh Stinson gave up five runs in five innings and he took the loss. Juan Lagares had two of the Sand Gnats five hits.
The Sand Gnats actually scored in the second game and the pitching was better. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough. A nice start by Tim Stonrach went to waste in the 2-1 loss. He gave up one run on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts in seven solid innings. Josh Thole singled twice and he drove in the only run in either game for the Sand Gnats.
The Sand Gnats and Catfish combined for 27 hits but only five runs in a 3-2, fourteen inning pitchers duel. Matt Durkin threw 6 2/3 solid innings in his start and Jeremy Mizell gave up the losing run and he dropped to 2-4 on the season.
Josh Thole was the hitting star. He went three for six with a double, a run and an RBI.

The Sand Gnats got some nice pitching in both games of their doubleheader against the Cat Fish. In the first game, Matt Durkin threw a nice game and improved to 1-2 on the season. He gave up one run on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts in five innings of work. Juan Lagares provided the offense in the 2-1 win with a two run homer.
In the second game, Greg Mullens improved to 3-1 with a nice start. He gave up one run on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in five innings of work. Josh Thole singled, drove in two and scored a run while Joe Holden went two for three with a run in the 4-1 win.
Tobi Stoner didn’t nab his first win yet, but it wasn’t because of his performance on the mound. He gave one unearned run on just two hits and he struck out six in six solid innings. He set a season high for strikeouts and innings. Unfortunately, Todd Privitt wasn’t as good and he gave up four runs after Stoner left as the Sand Gnats lost it 5-3.
Josh Thole was the hitting star. He went two for four and he scored one of the runs.
The Sand Gnats scored three runs in the final two frames to come back and beat the RiverDogs 4-3. Josh Thole drove in two of those runs and he doubled while Daniel Stegall went two for four with a double and an RBI.
Julio Polanco was hit hard in his start and he gave up three runs in four innings. David Koons picked up the win and he got the final four batters out to wrap up the game.
Tobi Stoner dropped to 0-3 in a loss to Savannah but this one was a tough one because outside of a tough first inning, he threw a nice game. While he was credited with three runs, the final run that put Savannah ahead came off a double by Jonathan Castillo that he inherited from Stoner so the pen deserves some credit in the loss as well. Stoner did strike out four in 4 1/3 innings and from the end of the first inning on, he retired eleven consecutive batters.
Josh Thole was the only Sand Gnat with two hits in the game. He went two for four with two doubles and he scored one of the two runs.
Josh Thole got it done at the plate in the Sand Gnats 5-4 win over Greenville. He went three for three with a walk, a run and two RBIs. Leivi Ventura also had a solid game as he continued his hot start and he singled twice, scored two runs and drove in one.
Tim Stonrach picked up the win although it was hardly a stellar start. He gave up four runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts in five innings. It’s his first win of the season.
Savannah was blown out earlier today and they’ve started the season an unimpressive 1-4. The final was 10-0 and not only were the Sand Gnats held to four hits, but their starter was tagged for nine runs.
Julio Polanco was hit hard and early. He gave up nine runs (eight earned) on ten hits and three walks in 3 1/3 innings. At the plate, Joshua Thole was two for two with a walk.
