GreenJackets a step closer to clinching after beating Lexington

Tuesday August 27, 2013

Augusta, Ga--The Augusta GreenJackets downed Lexington 6-2 Tuesday night and now reduce their magic number to two for winning the southern division title in the second half of the season.

The Jackets spotted the Legends a 1-0 early lead only to have Augusta bounce back with three runs of their own. Alberto Robles and Mitch Delfino delivered sacrifice flys while Joey Rapp doubled home the third run of the inning.

Augusta tallied three more in the 8th for the final margin. With the win, the GreenJackets need one more win over Lexington in the next two nights to nail down a spot in the South Atlantic League playoffs.
