Rome Braves top Augusta, 6-2. Media release: The Augusta GreenJackets, South Atlantic League affiliate of San Francisco Giants, lost 6-2 on Friday night to the Rome Braves. The game started promising as the GreenJackets took an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. The run came off the bat of Jacob Gonzalez who knocked in Logan Baldwin from third. The lead would hold until the fourth inning, when the game started to get away from the GreenJackets. The Braves got hot at the plate and started compiling hits. This would lead to a big inning for the Braves as they put up five runs. The GreenJackets attempted to make a comeback as Jacob Gonzalez once again hit home Logan Baldwin in the fifth inning. Throughout the rest of the game, the GreenJackets would put pressure on the Braves pitching, but not enough to start a comeback. The GreenJackets lost the series by losing three of four games to the Braves. The loss puts them in a tie with Rome for the lead in the Southern Division of the South Atlantic League.

Next: At Hickory Saturday 6 p.m., Sunday 3 p.m., Monday 6 p.m and Tuesday, 10:30 a.m. Off Wednesday.

Roster moves: None.
