The Bananas needed a little bit of extra time, but they got the job done.
A Garrett Nelson walk-off single in the 10th inning gave Savannah a 3-2 win over Florence Saturday night at Grayson Stadium.
Bryce Fischer got the 10th inning offense going with a leadoff double to left center. After an intentional walk and a flyout, the Long Beach State Dirtbag delivered the game winning hit.
The Bananas threw Johnny Wholestaff on the mound Saturday, using five pitchers and none for more than two innings. Georgia Southern product Hunter Phillips picked up the win after striking out six of the seven batters he faced in two innings.
The Bananas close out the home portion of the regular season schedule Sunday night, when they host the Gastonia Grizzlies.
