Shorebirds Tie Series with GreenJackets

By Augusta GreenJackets | May 7, 2018 10:35 PM ET

Salisbury, MD: The Augusta GreenJackets, South Atlantic League affiliate of San Francisco Giants, lost a 4-3 ballgame to the Delmarva Shorebirds on Monday night.

The GreenJackets got down early after the Shorebirds put up three runs in the bottom of the third inning. A position they have not been in often this season. To the credit of the GreenJackets, they fought back when no one seemed to have their best stuff on a colder night at the ballpark.

 

In the sixth inning, Heliot Ramos lead off with a double and then came around to score after Manuel Geraldo singled to center field. Geraldo would then score after capitalizing on some fielding mistakes by the Shorebirds.

 

In the end, it wouldn't be enough even when the GreenJackets put up another run in the eighth inning. The GreenJackets concluded their seven game road trip with a 3-4 record. Next they come home for an eight game homestand against the Rome Braves and the Greensboro Grasshoppers.

 

Starting May 9th, the GreenJackets will be back home for a homestand against the Rome Braves. Wednesday night will be Big Beers, Brats, and BBQ night presented by Maurice's Piggy Park.
