It was a pitcher's duel until the top of the 5th. That's when Savannah scored its first run off of a throwing error. They added another in the top of the 7th when Garret Delano singled in the 2nd run of the game. The Bacon got on the board in the bottom of the 8th when Jackson Jones hit a RBI groundout. The Bacon stranded two in the bottom of the 9th when the game came to an end. Riley King went 3 for 4 for Macon, while Delano and Justin Dirden each collected 2 hits for Savannah. Tyler Follis got the win for the Bananas going 5 shutout innings while giving up just 3 hits.
