GreenJackets win both games of doubleheader against Fireflies

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - The GreenJackets continued their recent dominance against the Fireflies by beating them in both games of a doubleheader on Saturday at Lake Olmstead Stadium.  Augusta is now on a three-game winning streak and is 8-2 in their last ten games against Columbia.

Earlier in the day, the GreenJackets hung on for a 3-2 win against the Fireflies.  Augusta would take the first lead of the game in the first inning on Jean Angomas' RBI single.  The game was tied 1-1 going into the bottom of the third inning, but they would regain the lead on Jose Vizcaino Jr's RBI single. They would stay in front the rest of the way to win this tight contest.

In the second game of the doubleheader, the GreenJackets' bats were too much for the Fireflies to handle.  Augusta would go on to win 8-0 behind a four-run second inning.  The home team would add two runs in the fourth and fifth innings to pad their lead.  Jean Angomas and Sandro Fabian both went 3-4 on the game.

The GreenJackets are going for the sweep on Sunday night in the final game of their four-game series against Columbia.  First-pitch is scheduled for 5:05 PM. Raffi Vizcaino (3-5, 5.73 ERA) will take the mound for the GreenJackets against Gabriel Llanes (5-9, 4.05) for the Fireflies.
