Salisbury, MD: The Augusta GreenJackets, South Atlantic League affiliate of San Francisco Giants, won 10-0 on Sunday afternoon against the Delmarva Shorebirds.
The GreenJackets played their most complete game of the season in dominating the Shorebirds. The pitching, hitting, and fielding were at their best in Sunday's ballgame,
On the mound, John Gavin went four innings giving up only one hit. He then gave the ball to John Russell who went three innings giving up three hits. Russell earned his fourth win of the season which ties him for the most in the South Atlantic League. Then in his first appearance for the GreenJackets, Ryan Koziol kept the Shorebirds hitless over two innings.
At the plate, the entire GreenJackets team contributed to the ten runs put on the board. Jeffry Parra stood out with his two-run home run and a four RBI day. Also Shane Matheny who just returned to the GreenJackets lineup yesterday, hit a two-run home run as well.
In the field, Heliot Ramos in center field and Logan Baldwin in left field both had jaw-dropping plays that took extra base hits away from the Shorebirds.
