GREENVILLE, S.C. – Devin Harris hit a three-run homer with two outs in the seventh inning to lift the Augusta GreenJackets to a 6-5 victory over the Greenville Drive on Tuesday in the scheduled first game of a day-night doubleheader.

The second game was rained out and will be made up Wednesday as part of a doubleheader beginning at 5:05 p.m.

With the GreenJackets down to their final out in the seven-inning game, Jose Flores doubled to right-center on a two-strike pitch. Brett Krill was then hit by a pitch. Harris followed and hit a 1-0 offering from Dylan Chavez (0-2) over the left-field fence.

 Augusta reliever Andrew Berger retired three of the four batters he faced – stranding the tying run at third base – to earn his first save of the season.
