Augusta, GA-The third and final game of the three game series between the Augusta GreenJackets and the Kannapolis Intimidators has been canceled due to the power going out at Lake Olmstead Stadium Friday night. With one out in the bottom of the fifth, the game tied at one, and Will Albertson batting for the GreenJackets, the lights and all electricity in the stadium went out causing the game to be stopped.
There will be no completion date. Fans will be able to exchange their ticket to any remaining GreenJackets game this season with the exception of the games on July 4 and Labor Day.
The GreenJackets will be back in action Saturday night for game one of a four game series against the Lexington Legends at Lake Olmstead Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05pm with the gates opening at 4:30pm. It is Pink in the Park night as well as the fifth Reading Program Night of the season. Bethany and the Southside Boys will perform a pre game concert. There will be a jersey auction and a pink tote bag giveaway to the first 1,500 fans into the stadium presented by Augusta University Health. Kids ages 12 and under will be able to run the bases after the game.
Caleb Baragar (0-2, 2.81) will start on the mound for the GreenJackets against Nolan Watson (1-5, 5.71) for the Legends.
The 29th consecutive season of professional baseball in Augusta is underway.
