Jackets win in 11th on wild pitch



KANNAPOLIS, N.C. Ä Luis Figueroa and Al Davis scored on a wild pitch in the 11th inning Saturday night, lifting the Augusta GreenJackets to a 4-2 South Atlantic League victory over the Piedmont Boll Weevils.

It was turn-about, fair play in the latest Battle of the Bugs, since the Weevils scored twice in the 11th to win Friday's game. Three of Augusta's runs were unearned.

The victory was credited to southpaw Erick Ojeda and Davis Daniels earned the save. Both pitched shutout innings.

The loss was charged to Kyle Kawabata, the third Weevils pitcher.

Aaron France will start for Augusta in tonight's game. The series winds up on Monday night.
