GreenJackets Take Two from Fireflies

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - The GreenJackets are going for the sweep on Thursday, after they took the first two games of their series against the Columbia Fireflies.

Tuesday night's game on July Fourth was suspended due to a power outage.  The GreenJackets completed that game on Wednesday, beating the Fireflies 5-3 at Lake Olmstead Stadium.  They also beat Columbia 7-2 in their regularly scheduled game for Wednesday.  The star of the game was starting pitcher Garrett Williams who threw seven shutout innings.

The GreenJackets will be back in action on Thursday night for the final game of the series.  First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 pm.  Melvin Adon (1-8, 4.08 ERA) will start for the GreenJackets against Thomas Szapucki (1-2, 2.86 ERA) for the Fireflies.
