SAVANNAH, GA – Albert Cordero drove home a season-high six runs for the Sand Gnats on Saturday night, but Joe Bonfe delivered the game-winner with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to cap a big Gnats comeback for a 7-6 win over the Lexington Legends in front of 2,896 fans at Historic Grayson Stadium.
It was the second time in three games that a ball off Bonfe's bat delivered a Gnats' win with two outs in the bottom of the ninth.
Down 7-6 entering the ninth, SS Wilfredo Tovar began the rally with a walk. RF Rafael Fernandez followed with a double to center and the Legends elected to walk DH Blake Forsythe to load the bases for Cordero.
Cordero followed with a ground single to run to drive home Tovar, evening the game at 7-7.
An out later, Bonfe also ground a single into right field to bring home Forsythe with the winning run.
Savannah reliever Ronny Morla worked a scoreless top of the ninth to pick up the win and even his record at 2-2.
