Augusta GreenJackets (Mid-A): South Atlantic League All-Star Game
South All-Stars 5, North All-Stars 3
WP: M. Daley
LP: A. Laffey
Augusta hosted the 2005 South Atlantic League All-Star Game, and the hosts took it 5-3, with a couple of the hometown kids playing roles. The GreenJackets had only 4 representatives, one of whom, Jonathan Sanchez, didn’t make an appearance pitching. But shortstop Marcus Sanders showed off some of his skills, going 1 for 1, taking 3 walks, and scoring 2 runs for the Southerners. The minor league leading base stealer, however, was caught stealing. Meanwhile, right fielder Brian Horwitz was 1 for 2, with 2 RBI coming in on his single. Meanwhile, closer Brian Wilson gave up a double, but didn’t allow any runs and got a K in getting the save for the game.

Notable Augusta Performances:
Marcus Sanders: 1-1, 2 R, 3 BB, 1 CS, 1 E
Brian Horwitz: 1-2, 2 RBI
Brian Wilson: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
