Dom Smith Doubles, Akeel Morris Ends the Game with a Strikeout (and four more gifs!)

            After the Brooklyn gif recap and the Thor pitch sequences, I didn’t have enough time for a full gif recap of the Savannah game from Saturday night, but I did grab a few nice highlights. There were a few other big hits in the game, and I did not cover starter Alex Panteliodis, so I can go back upon request for specific plays if you ask in the comments.
            Dominic Smith got the Savannah three-run 4th inning started with this double to the left-center field-warning track off of a lefty.

             Here is relief pitcher Dawrin Frias getting Jimmy Rider to strike out swinging on the 8th pitch of the at-bat. It was his second strikeout of the night, but the other one came at a terrible angle.

            Hunter Carnevale was the third Savannah pitcher used Saturday night. He got credit for the blown save when a passed ball allowed Kendrick Perkins to score the tying run in the 8th – he came into a bases loaded, two outs situation and did get the batter out, after the passed ball. He then had back-to-back strikeouts after a leadoff walk in the 9th:
            Carlos Asuaje struck out swinging.

            Wendell Rijo struck out looking.

            After Champ Stuart led off the 11th with a walk, he stole 2B and went to 3B on a fly out to RF by Yeixion Ruiz. Victor Cruzado then drove him in with this RBI single to RF.

Akeel Morris then came in for the save in the 11th and retired the first two hitters in order. He’d walk Aneudis Peralta on five pitches before getting Asuaje swinging with this breaking ball.
