Posted by Andy Durham on July 14, 2012 at 11:13 pm under Professional | Comments are off for this article

Big night at NewBridge Bank Park, where the Greensboro Grasshopper rolled in their 12-2 victory over the visiting Kannapolis Intimidators…..Austin Barnes had a three-run home run to really open the game up and the Hoppers also saw three RBI, on three hits with two doubles, coming from their new shortstop Austin Nola….Sort of like the old Saturday night PBS program Austin City Limits and it was ‘Country Music Night’ at the ballpark, so that all worked out good together….James Wooster has three RBI, Rand Smith collected four hits Tony Caldwell had three hits and you could just keep going on and on…John Schultz started out 0-2, but then he finished up 3-6….Josh Hodges got the win for the Hoppers, his sixth and this was one of those break-out nights that you hope to have, so your team can get that confidence level building again and that should be the case, after tonight’s success….With this win, the Hoppers have now won three game in a-row….
