Chris Stratton, the former Tupelo and Mississippi State ace, picked up his first professional victory on Saturday.
Stratton pitched five innings of six-hit ball as Class A Augusta defeated Lexington 4-1. He gave up the earned run and struck out three, walking one.
The 22-year-old Stratton was the 20th overall pick by San Francisco in the 2012 player draft. He appeared in five minor league games last summer, going 0-1 with a 2.76 ERA.
