  • Augusta's baseball and softball team did not pick a good day to play Maize South.
    The Mavericks swept the Orioles on both diamonds Thursday night in Augusta to ruin both Oriole squads' senior night.
    The Mavericks' baseball squad defeated the Orioles 6-3 in the opener and finished off the nightcap with a 7-3 victory for the sweep.
    Augusta's softball mustered just five hits in the opener and got blanked 8-0 in the opener against the Maverick. The Orioles had a 3-2 lead late in the nightcap before Maize South rallied with a four-run inning to come away with a 6-3 win.
    Augusta will close the regular season with road doubleheaders at Buhler Monday. The Oriole baseball team will play at 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.; Buhler's field doesn't have lights.
    Check back online and in Saturday's Times-Gazette for full stories from the Orioles' senior nights.
