MYRTLE BEACH, SC: – A season defined by rain-affected ball games continued for the GreenJackets tonight, as their Friday evening contest against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans was postponed in the second inning. It is the second game in less than seven days to be suspended due to rain, and the first such game at Pelicans Ballpark this week.

At the time of the delay, the GreenJackets were leading 2-0 in the top of the second inning thanks to a Jacob Godman RBI single, and subsequent error that doubled the lead. Augusta had men at first and third, with two outs in the inning and Luis Sanchez about to begin his second at bat of the night. Didier Fuentes was on the mound for Augusta, while Kenten Egbert was throwing for the Pelicans.

Friday’s game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Saturday, with first pitch of the continuation set for 4 p.m.. The continued game will be played from its pause point and all nine innings will be completed. Game two will begin 40 minutes after the conclusion of the restarted game and will be seven innings in duration. It will be the first doubleheader of the season for both clubs.

The GreenJackets will be back home at SRP Park Tuesday, May 14, beginning a season-long 12 game homestand against the Salem Red Sox and Kannapolis Cannon Ballers.
