Hoppers starter Adam Conley takes the loss, but only gave up one run, on one hit and he struck out eight Greenjackets batters…Hoppers now (40-18) and Augusta stands at (23-33) and the same two teams meet tonight, in Augusta…..One side note we have, is that Augusta’s starting third baseman in last night’s game was Garrett Buchele, the son of former Texas Rangers’ third baseman, Steve Buchele…From Arlington, Texas, the home of the Rangers and dad Steve could leave them runs off of the scoreboard when he was on defense at third and bring the runners home, when he was at the plate…An all-time great for the Rangers and how many of you remember Steve? I’ll leave it at that and go grab your bat……
