NORTH AUGUSTA, SOUTH CAROLINA--The Augusta GreenJackets (41-36, 5-4) saw their four-game winning streak come to an end as the Lexington Legends (40-38, 3-6) stole the 2nd game of the four-game series with a 1-0 win. The Jackets could only muster up five-hit for the game.

After both pitchers did not allow a run in the first three innings, the Legends struck first in the 4th inning. With men on 1st and 2nd base, Rubendy Jaquez singled. Reed Rohlman tried to score from 2nd base, but GreenJackets right fielder Diego Rincones tossed him out with a great throw to the plate.

With runners on 2nd and 3rd base for Lexington after the sensational play by Rincones, Eric Cole streaked home from 3rd base for Lexington on a passed ball, and Lexington had a 1-0 lead. It was an unearned run for Keaton Winn, as he went six-innings and did not allow an earned run, while he finished with six strikeouts.

Matt Seelinger went two innings of scoreless ball out of the bullpen, before Luis Amaya went the 9th without allowing a run. The GreenJackets offense was kept quiet all night long and Lexington steals the 2nd game 1-0 over the Jackets. Diego Rincones ends the night going 2-4.
