Lexington, KY – Kyle Nicholson delivered one of the league’s best pitching performances of the season Saturday night with a complete game victory over the Lexington Legends. Lexington’s Ross Seaton answered against the Augusta GreenJackets on Monday night with his own gem – a complete game 5-0 shutout to split the four-game set between the Legends and GreenJackets from Applebee’s Park.
Seaton’s shutout is only the second of the season in the South Atlantic League – the other was Kyle Nicholson’s seven-inning blanking of the Asheville Tourists on May 18th – and the first nine-inning complete game shutout. Seaton (6-4) dominated the GreenJackets, allowing just three hits without a walk and striking out six.
Ehire Adrianza doubled in the fifth and was the only Augusta hitter to reach second. The other two baserunners came on a pair of singles and a fielding error in the third.
Aaron King ran into trouble and bad luck in the first. After a groundball to third that may have been a double play with one out and a runner on was mishandled by Charlie Culberson, King allowed a three-run home run to Brian Pellegrini to give the Legends a first-inning lead. Lexington added another in the third on a Matt Klimas throwing error and their final run in the sixth off reliever Andrew Reichard on Ronnie Ramirez’s RBI single.
