The GreenJackets missed an opportunity to sweep the Tourists on the road, falling to Asheville's team 11-2 on Sunday. 

The Tourists took the first lead of the game by scoring two runs in the second inning and never looked back.  They would add four runs in the third inning and another three in the fourth.  Yordy Cabrera started for the GreenJackets giving up four earned runs in two innings.  Jeff Burke came in to prevent further damage and pitched two innings allowing three earned runs. 

Augusta will be back in action on Tuesday night for the beginning of a short three-game homestand against the Columbia Fireflies.  First-pitch is scheduled for 7:05 P.M.  The GreenJackets have been playing well against Columbia recently.  They took three out of four against the Fireflies at home earlier this month.
