The Hickory Crawdads fell to the Augusta GreenJackets, 5-0, before 4,444 fans at L.P. Frans Stadium on Saturday night.

The GreenJackets (14-22) grabbed a 2-0 lead, scoring twice in the top of the third against losing pitcher Carlos Melo.  A two-out single by Ehire Adrianza kept the inning alive. He moved to second base on a wild pitch, and he scored on Adam Duvall's  RBI double. Drew Biery's run-scoring single brought home Duvall.
Augusta made it a 5-0 game by scoring three runs in the top of the fifth.  With runners at first and third and nobody out, Adrianza smacked an RBI single to center field making it 3-0 and chasing Melo from the mound.  Nick Tepesch came on in relief, and following a fly ball out and a walk to load the bases, Ryan Scoma delivered a two-run double, giving the GreenJackets a five-run cushion.
Augusta starter Seth Rosin, who picked up his first win of the year, put up seven scoreless innings; left-hander Gaspar Santiago closed things out with two scoreless innings of relief.
NOTES: The 'Dads host the Augusta GreenJackets on Sunday at 5 p.m. for Bark at the Park!  All fans are welcome to bring their dogs to the game!  Sunday will also be Sitcom Night and Faith and Family Day, featuring a pre-game service by Longview Church of God from 3:30 - 4:15 p.m.
