Augusta, GA – The Augusta GreenJackets (41-28, 6-2) completed the three game series sweep of the Greenville Drive (40-30, 3-5) Thursday night with an 8-0 win. Starter Daryl Maday worked seven shutout innings in the win and Augusta scored the only run it needed in the first inning without the benefit of a hit.
Shane Jordan led off the first inning being hit by a pitch then advanced to second base on the one-out walk to Garrett Baker. Angel Villalona then hit a ball to third base that Oscar Tejeda could not handle allowing Jordan to score for a 1-0 Augusta lead.
Maday (6-4) allowed just three hits, one walk and struck out four in the win. Wilmin Rodriguez worked the final two shutout innings for Augusta allowing one hit, a walk and a strikeout. The GreenJackets were held without a hit over the first four innings but then plated eight runs on nine hits over the fifth and sixth innings.
Two runs scored in the fifth inning with one coming when Jordan hit into a double-play with the bases loaded. Nick Noonan followed with an RBI single for a 3-0 Augusta lead.
