Saturday, July 5 - Augusta 6, Greenville 5

 

Greenville is inventing new ways to keep a losing streak alive. It continued Saturday when shortstop Tzu-Wei Lin, who entered having committed 10 errors in 66 games, committed three errors in two consecutive plays. They directly led to three runs, including the game-winning run for Augusta in the bottom of the ninth.

Friday, July 4 - Augusta 13, Greenville 9

 

Using "fireworks" in the lede of my July 4 gamer might be predictable, but after a 22-run game, I did it anyway.

 

The lead changed hands between Augusta and Greenville twice because of innings that produced five and six runs each. Of the seven half innings that produced runs, only one led to one run. The rest were either two, four, five or six runs.

ROME, Ga. - A trip to Rome nearly paid off in a big way for me Tuesday night as Augusta starter Christian Jones carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Braves.

Thursday, June 26 - Augusta 7, Rome 0

 

The GreenJackets rebounded from a tough Wednesday to post seven runs in the first four innings Thursday. They coasted from there for a 7-0 win.

 

Tyler Horan:

Horan had probably the best game of his career so far, going 3 for 3 with a home run, five RBI and a walk. He had all but the walk in the first four innings, driving in five runs before many fans had settled into their seats.
