SAVANNAH 2, HAGERSTOWN 0: Savannah won its first South Atlantic League title in 17 years by shutting out Hagerstown on Friday night. Savannah won the best-of-five series, 3-1. Savannah scored both its runs on Stefan Sabol's two-run double in the fourth inning, as he plated Brandon Nimmo and Dilson Herrera. Those runs were all the support the Savannah pitching staff needed. Steven Matz picked up the win with 5 2/3 innings of scoreless ball and struck out nine, and the bullpen threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings of relief. Beck Wheeler picked up the save and recorded two strikeouts. Box
