Better late than never, they always say.

Whoever "they" is, they were probably talking about the Bananas Saturday.

After failing to score through the first six innings, Savannah exploded for six runs in the 7th and 8th to take a 6-2 win over Gastonia Saturday. The Bananas scored five of those runs in the 8th.

Kenneth LaPierre dazzled on the mound for Savannah, pitching eight strong innings while allowing two unearned runs. The San Diego State Aztec allowed just two hits while striking out three.

Bryce Fischer led the way at the plate with a 3-4 day. He also added two RBI and a run. Jake Howard added three RBI to the Bananas' cause.

This contest closed out a stretch of five games in five days for the Bananas. The team went 3-2 during that week. The Bananas are back home at historic Grayson Stadium Monday night to host Lexington County.
