MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) –  The Macon Bacon kicked off its 2020 baseball season Wednesday, on the road against rival Savannah Bananas.

There was a socially distanced crowd of 15-hundred people at Grayson Stadium.

The Bacon got off to a rough start. A bad throw-over by pitcher Matt Litwicki in the first inning gave the Bananas an early 1-0 lead.

Unfortunately, the Bacon would struggle all night. Bill Knight’s single put the Bananas up 2-0, and they would never look back.

The Bananas scored five runs in the first inning. They’d go on to blank the Bacon, 8-0.

The Bacon host Savannah Thursday in their home opener at Luther Williams field.
