The Lexington Legends had a tough night in Augusta, Ga., on Friday, losing to the GreenJackets 9-2.
The trouble started early for Lexington. Starter Brad Dydalewicz walked the first two batters he faced and went on to give up eight hits and six earned runs over 41⁄3 innings.
The Legends finally got a pair of runs off Augusta starter Ari Ronick in the seventh, but the RBI single by Ronnie Ramirez and bases-loaded walk to Eric Suttle weren't enough to make up the difference.
The team returns to Lexington Saturday for a four-game series with the Rome Braves.
