In Greenville, S.C., the Augusta GreenJackets settled for a doubleheader split with the Greenville Drive on Wednesday night as Devin Harris continued his strong play.

Augusta won the opener 6-1, thanks to a five-run third inning that included a two-run homer by Garrett Buechele and a two-run triple by Harris, who hit a game-winning homer in Tuesday’s game.

Augusta starter Kyle Crick earned the win, giving up the lone run on six hits in 5⅔ of work.

Greenville took the nightcap 5-2 in dramatic fashion. Blake Swihart connected on a 3-run, walk-off homer in the seventh off Christopher Marlowe.

Harris had a RBI double for the Jackets in the sixth inning.
