Sunday, June 23 - Kannapolis 5, Augusta 3
Although Chris Stratton pitched effectively for six innings, his bullpen was unable to hold a 1-1 tie.
Stephen Johnson and Mason McVay each allowed a run on a wild pitch in the seventh, and McVay gave up two more in the eighth that proved to be deciding runs.
Augusta GreenJackets starter Martin Agosta walked two, hit two and allowed a two-run single before getting three outs in the first inning. That would be all for him in his 13th start of the season.
GreenJackets manager Mike Goff said Agosta is going through "dead arm." Goff said he didn't want to take a chance with a second inning of work with him fighting it and losing his mechanics.
Friday, June 21 - Kannapolis 12, Augusta 2
Not much to say for Augusta in the second game of the series.
Kannapolis starter Brandon Brennan held the GreenJackets to two unearned runs on three hits in seven innings. He only struck out two, benefiting from weak ground balls and avoiding hard contact, which is what he attempts to do with a two-pitch mix.

Kannapolis Intimidators (0-1, 27-42)
Brandon Brennan (68.2 IP, 6.55 ERA, 4.15 FIP, 15.6 K%, 7 BB%, .363 BABIP)

Joan Gregorio (31 IP, 1.74 ERA, 1.33 FIP, 29.7 K%, 2.5 BB%, .329 BABIP)
Kannapolis shortstop Tim Anderson kept a cool demeanor for someone who just played his first career professional game.
Anderson strolled through the visiting clubhouse at Lake Olmstead Stadium to speak after the game, maintaining the same calmness he displayed during warmups and Thursday's game. But the 6-foot-1 shortstop out of East Central Community College in Mississippi displayed a quiet confidence that he belonged despite a shaky debut.
Thursday, June 20 - Augusta 5, Kannapolis 1
The second half began with the most efficient home game of the season for Augusta thanks to seven impressive innings from starter Kendry Flores.

The All-Star break in Minor League Baseball tends to signal the beginning of new assignments, a few higher draft picks making pro debuts and system cuts. The South Atlantic League has seen its share of impact moves already.
Two notable names that Augusta may remember will make their major league debuts soon.
Brandon Cumpton, a former Greenbrier and Georgia Tech standout, will make his debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday in place of the injured A.J. Burnett. Cumpton, who went 31-3 during his four years at Greenbrier, had a 3.31 ERA with 49 strikeouts and 22 walks in 65.1 innings for Triple-A Indianapolis this season.
