  • The Lakewood BlueClaws beat the Savannah Sand Gnats 8-4 Tuesday.   2 2009 draftees played for Savannah and one lost the game.   P John Church (0-2) came on in the 7th with a runner on 1st and Savannah holding a 4-3 lead.   Church walked the 1st 2 batters he faced to load the bases then gave up a 2-run single, then got out of the inning without further damage.   Unfortunately in the 8th he gave up a triple and a walk before being removed, and both baserunners scored so Church's final line was 2/3 of an inning, 2 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks and 1 strikeout.   LF Joseph August was 0 for 4 but did get an RBI on a 2nd inning ground out.   For more see the game story, box score and recap.
