Update June 27: Francisco Arcia’s walk-off single in the tenth inning sealed a 7-6 win for the Charleston RiverDogs over the Savannah Sand Gnats on Tuesday night in South Atlantic League action.

The RiverDogs have won three games in a row, and their record now stands at 42-31 (3-3 in the second half) this season. They have taken the first two games of this four game series with the 42-31 Sand Gnats (1-5 in the second half).

The rally that won the game began when Cito Culver reached on an error by second baseman Brandon Brown. Casey Stevenson (2-5, HR, RBI, run) then beat out a bunt single, bringing up the night’s hero, Francisco Arcia. Fred Lewis (4-1), who recorded the final out of the top of the tenth, was credited with his fourth win while Chasen Bradford (2-1) took the loss.

On Wednesday, June 27, the RiverDogs will send RHP Wilton Rodriguez (1-2, 6.23 ERA) to the mound against RHP Logan Verrett (2-1, 2.40 ERA) in the third game of the series. All seniors who come to the game will receive a voucher for a free hot dog, soda and chips on Senior Wednesday.
