Thursday, August 15 - Augusta 3, Greenville 2 (12 innings)
Thursday was a crazy game, so I'll spare the details of how it happened other than to say the Augusta GreenJackets got some outstanding baserunning late in the game, and that was the main reason they pulled it out. It should be expected from professional players, but that doesn't mean one can't appreciate intelligent and instinctful baserunning. It was fun to watch.

The Augusta GreenJackets came away with 14 runs in a rout of the Greenville Drive on Wednesday night, but manager Mike Goff went back to starter Kendry Flores and another solid outing from the durable right-hander in the game.

Baseball Scoutz played host to its Georgia All-Star Game at Georgia Southern on Saturday and Sunday. It was a weekend featuring some of the better high school players in the state, including an Augusta-area team that showed some talent.
I was able to catch all three Saturday games, including the night game that featured the Augusta-area players against mostly Atlanta-area kids. A few stood out from the game.
Baseball America released its annual lists of best tools in each level of the minors as voted on by managers and coaches. Two Augusta GreenJackets made the list for the South Atlantic League.
Sunday, August 4 - Augusta 6, Charleston 5
If you're going to end a nine-game homestand in seven days, you might as well do it in an interesting fashion.
Augusta threw away a three-run lead in the top of the ninth on three wild pitches by two different pitchers, and the GreenJackets ended up winning in the bottom of the ninth on an error.
