Greensboro Grasshoppers 2
Lakewood Blueclaws 0

WP:Matt Montgomery(5-8)
Save:AJ Ramos 18th….
LP:Jonathan Pettibone(3-3)

HR:Kyle Skipworth in the 7th inning, his 13th of the season….It was a solo shot to left field that just got out….Justin Bass had a double in the 8th inning to produce the insurance run and he was driven on a single to right field, off the wall, by Chad Creagar…..

Montogomery went 8 strong innings as did Pettibone and it was still a scoreless ballgame until Skipworth connected in the 7th to give the Grasshoppers the advantage….

Time of Game:A smooth One hour and forty-five minutes…..(1:45)……..They should have taken a break and came back out for game two, but with the temp at 95 at gametime and later up to 99, game two may have been out of the question….

Hoppers(8-6) at Hickory(7-7) for five games beginning on Thursday evening….Back home next Wednesday for five games with Asheville……
