Savannah, GA – The Hickory Crawdads beat the Savannah Sand Gnats 1-0 in a game that was called after five innings due to wet grounds at Historic Grayson Stadium Sunday. The game was delayed by rain at the beginning of the top of the sixth. The Crawdads (12-5) swept the four game series from the Gnats (10-8).

Savannah is off on Monday, and begins a seven-game road trip in Charleston, WV on Tuesday evening.

The Crawdads scored the game’s only run in the top of the third inning. With one out, RF Chris Grayson doubled. The following batter, DH Hanser Alberto lined a ball up the middle. Gnats pitcher Michael Fulmer snared the liner on the fly, and threw to second base to attempt to complete a double play. However, second base was unoccupied, and the throw went into center field. Grayson headed to third, and scored when centerfielder Tillman Pugh’s throw to third bounced away from Savannah third baseman Aderlin Rodriguez and went out of play.

Fulmer worked one 1-2-3 inning in the fifth, but took his second loss of 2012 for allowing just one unearned run.
