Robbie Shields went 1-for-4 and delivered the game’s only RBI in the seventh. Box
WEST VIRGINIA 9, SAVANNAH 4: T.J. Rivera and Dustin Lawley both homered in a losing cause for the Sand Gnats. Starter Domingo Tapia suffered the loss after giving up eight runs on eight hits and getting just four outs. Box
