The skid is over! The Savannah Sand Gnats broke their 10 game losing skid with a 1-0 win over the Augusta GreenJackets on Wednesday afternoon.

D.J. Wabick hit a double in the 4th inning to score Jonathan Sanchez from second to give the Sand Gnats the 1-0 lead and Nelson Portillo held the GreenJackets bats in check the rest of the way.

With the win, Portillo up'ed his record to 3-6 this season. He allowed just two hits in 7 innings of work and did not allow a run.   He also struck out two batters in the win.

Although D.J. Wabick was the hero with the game winning hit in the 4th, Luis Rivera was 2-3 at the plate for the Sand Gnats.

The win gets the Sand Gnats to 10 wins in the second half versus 16 losses.

These two foes are back at it Thursday night. It's United Way at the ballpark.  Bert, "The Man of Steel" Tenenbaum, the United Way campaign chairwill throw out the first pitch.
